It’s harvest time for real estate!

By Staff | Nov 18, 2010

Call Mike and Nancy Montoya for information on this home available at 5131-E Hanawai St.

A friend recently stated that real estate is like farming. You cultivate the soil, plant the seed, water and fertilize, and pray for good weather. When the crop has matured, you pick like crazy and market the best.

The local real estate climate is ready for harvest. There are many good products to choose from in an affordable price range and locations.

Buying a home? Home ownership is a great investment for three reasons; it’s a forced savings plan, it’s an inflation hedge and it grows virtually tax-free.

What to buy? Buy in the bottom price range of the neighborhood. Homes appreciate in good neighborhoods and are based on three things: location, location, location.

If possible, buy near the water or with a view. And buy bargains by overlooking bad landscaping, outdated carpet and ugly wallpaper. However, always buy a home that is (or can be) attractive from the street and has a good floor plan, or “Good Bones.”

Buyer’s access to the Maui Multiple Listing Service (MLS) can make house hunting easier. So, when you are ready to go shopping, give us a call and let us walk you through the buying process. We at Whalers Realty Inc. work hard to stay on top of the market conditions and provide buyers and sellers with excellent service and information.
