Kohala is such a great place and these prices are such values! You really know this area well Jana! Obviously working with a Realtor like you, (being from the area) would be a advantage to any buyer! For many reasons. Thanks for the statistics. These are great prices!

Great information. I especially like the location of the two little houses on Ilina Rd. Which are your favorites, Jana?

Oh my fave is the one you mentioned on Ilina Road…you could buy one to live in and the other one to rent out and get rental income. I also love the location!

If I bought one of the unimproved lots on the big island, not in a tourist area, nor where rich, rich Asians and Americans buy and live; just an ordinary ‘lot’, could I put a small, economy, pretty little house on it? OR, is everything in the big island zoned for mega-bucks-luxury homes? We’d build an do it ourselves. Tidy and clean. My husband is an engineer from New Zealand, and I am a retired housewife from Louisiana! Please reply if you do not mind? The lots are being advertised at $35k for 2 acres. Thank you for listening to one of the little people. We exist! Katy

Aloha Katy,
Have you been on the Big Island? Are you familiar with the area? The reason why I’m asking is your question regarding if the zoning is for mega bucks luxury homes. There are little people (including me) who live here on the Big Island. There are both luxury and modest homes but the lots that you are inquiring about are probably on the Puna side of the Big Island. I can answer more questions if you want more specific information.
Look forward to hearing back from you.
Mahalo,
