Aloha from Hawaii!
I’ve noticed that many Big Island buyers are looking for properties that are self-sustainable…Off-the-grid acreage with room for a home, possible rental income unit, space for crops, with no limit to the types of eco-energy sources that can be used.
Some of the things these forward-thinking buyers are looking for:
- Solar water heater
- Photovoltaic electricity
- Wind mill
- River, lake, or natural flowing fresh water access
- Lots of space for healthy crops
- Pastures for livestock
And all located in a community that offers the same like-minded people who have established similar Hawaii lifestyles.
We found many properties like this tucked away in the country communities of Waimea, Honoka’a, Laupahoehoe, and Paauilo, just to name a few (probably due to the rainfall and sunshine balance).
Gorgeous well-maintained properties with quality built homes on them, meticulously cared for farms, and some had expansive views of the countryside, Pacific Ocean, and beyond…I was quite impressed! A couple of the properties even offered both county water AND water catchment tank systems for the security of having both available.Â Wow!
Next, we venture South of the Big Island to see what’s available…the prices are very appealing for the opportunities we are looking for…9+ acres with a 1,300 sq. ft. house for $189,000…it’s definitely worth a look for the price!
Okay, more soon…eco-sustainable properties, here we come!
