Now is a great time to virtually explore real estate in Hawai’i. The east side of the Big Island has some of the most affordable properties in the state. I have compiled a few searches and tools to get you started on your journey.
Home & Land Search
I’ve created 2 links to get you started on your home and land search. The South Hilo and the Puna Districts cover a majority of the east side of the Big Island from Hakalau to Pahoa and over to Volcano! Click on the images below to see all the active listings in Hilo and Puna:
Interest Rate & Mortgage Payment Calculator
Curious about how much per month that house you saw online will cost? Here’s an easy way to quickly see how interest rates can affect a monthly mortgage payment and the income required to qualify for a loan.
Home Appreciation Rates
Have you wondered about the potential long-term value of a real estate investment? This interactive map demonstrates home value appreciation rates over different time periods and in different areas. You can even drill down to local information by entering an address or zip code.
Being pre-approved with a lender is critical when you start searching. As your agent, it helps me focus on putting the right properties in front of you for review. Niki Hubbard with VIP Mortgage is a great lending resource. Born and raised on the Big Island, she is able to assist with first time buyers, construction loans, VA, FHA, USDA, and conventional loans to meet your goals.
