Homeowners Assistance Program (HAP) July 25, 2022

The Army Corps of Engineers had the Homeowners Assitance Program during the recession of 2007 to 2011 that assisted Service Members who were upside down on their mortgages. There were certain criteria that had to be met such as that you must have purchased the property between certain dates as your primary residence and that you must have received that sent you away from the home you purchased. If you met the criteria then the HAP program in Hawaii contributed the difference between what you sold the house for and what your mortgage balance was. The Service Member who sold the house did not make any profit but the HAP program saved the Service Member from doing a short sale or from going into foreclosure.

David Kucic and Hawaii Military Realty, Inc. assisted several Service Members with HAP sales during the recession.

As I look at the current housing market in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, I see a grim picture for Service Members who purchased homes duriing the pandemic and will soon be on orders to leave Hawaii. Many homes are stagnant on the market because of the large amount of homes for sale and the hesitation of Buyers to purchase a home due to the uncertainty of the future, home prices, inflation and interest rates to name a few.

If you are a Service Member in a difficult situation, please dont hesitate to contact Hawaii Military Realty, Inc for honest and truthful information. You will deal with our team of career, retired Service Members, spouses and active Service Members who are all professionally trained and licensed to take care of our fellow Members.

January 2021: Rentals in Hot Demand in Ewa Beach, Hawaii

Its a trickle down effect. Buyers cant buy homes because there is too much competition and the Buyers cant wait forever so they are now turning to renting homes in Ewa Beach, Hawaii or moving into government housing. Its really a shame that these Buyers are not able to be competitive enough to buy homes but its all about “who has the most liquid cash to pay above the asking price for a house?” Typically, that is not my brother and sister Veterans that have this type of liquid cash so they are being priced out of the market. This makes renting a home even a difficult task for some Military Families since they are unable to purchase homes and now there is even competition for rental homes. Some of the most desirable areas in Ewa Beach, Hawaii such as the Hoakalei Resort properties of Ka Makana, Kuapapa and Lei Pauku, Ocean Pointe, Ewa By Gentry homes in all neighborhoods including Sonoma, Prescott, Haleakea, Cypress Point, Woodbridge, Carriages, Parkside, Tuscany, Montecito, Las Brisas, Tiburon, Cortebella, Terraza, Tides, Trades, SeaBridge, Coral Ridge, Latitude and Sandalwood to name a few.

Bidding Wars on Ewa Beach, Hawaii Homes Continues Into 2021

The inventory of homes for sale in Ewa Beach, Hawaii is minimal. There are a ton of Buyers looking for homes. Interest rates are low. Combine those 3 things and you have “bidding wars” on homes. In the past 2 weeks, we have had Buyers make offers ABOVE the list price by many, many thousands of dollars only to get beat out by someone that was willing to go higher. Two of the properties had a total of 28 offers and another one had 22 offers. Thats very hard to compete with if Buyers are not willing and/or not able to pay a higher price and have disposable cash to make up the difference between the appraised value and the inflated price they have to pay just to get the house.

New Home Building Ceases in Ewa Beach Dec 2017

For the past 20 years, Haseko has been building new homes in Ewa Beach in the Ocean Pointe and Hoakalei Resort Communities.  Their last residential building is taking place now as they sell out the last few homes in the Lei Pauku Townhouse community near/on Hoakalei Country Club.  Once those are completed, Haseko will focus on building the commercial project in that same area.  It is expected that Haseko will not be selling any new build residential properties for at least the next couple of years will cause our already low supply of homes to get even worse.  Are you interested in New Homes in Hawaii or Homes for Sale in Hawaii?  Contact us and we can help you as we helped over 1,000 Buyers, Sellers, Landlords and Tenants over the past 12 years.
