“Hawaii Real Estate 101: What You Need to Know”

Are you considering buying or selling real estate in Hawaii? As your local real estate experts, we are here to give you a crash course on Hawaii real estate. In this blog post, we’ll cover the basics of Hawaii’s real estate market, from buying and selling to financing and taxes.


Buying Real Estate in Hawaii:

  • Location, location, location: Hawaii is made up of several islands, each with its own unique character and real estate market. It’s important to choose a location that fits your lifestyle and budget. A simple Zoom consultation with us can help you determine what island best suits your wants, needs, and goals!
  • Limited inventory: Hawaii has limited space for new construction, which means that inventory can be limited in certain areas. It is important to have realistic expectations for purchasing on the islands, which we will most certainly assist you with. 
  • Financing options: It’s important to work with a lender who is familiar with Hawaii’s unique real estate market and can help you navigate the financing process. We highly recommend a local lender who can understand the islands and be within a local time-zone for efficiency. 
  • Property taxes: want to learn a Fun Fact?! Hawaii has one of the lowest property taxes in the nation! So although the price of paradise can be a sticker shock, at least you can score in this department. 


Selling Real Estate in Hawaii:

  • Choose the right time: Hawaii’s Real Estate market can be seasonal, with certain times of year being more favorable for selling than others. Work with us as your experienced local agents to determine the best time to sell your property.
  • Staging and marketing: As your local agents, we have had enough experience to know that presentation is key when Selling your property, whether it is a Sellers Market or Buyers Market, we always believe in making your home look like a model home. Work with us, and we will help you stage your property to make the most profit!
  • Disclosure requirements: Hawaii has strict disclosure requirements for Real Estate transactions, so it’s important to work with experienced agents (like us!) to keep you within compliance.


There is a difference when you work with Full Time Realtors, such as us (Team Epic Hawaii Homes, Tina & Sara) vs Part Time Realtors. Also, you get two of us! As your agents, we are dedicated to helping you navigate the intricate world of Hawaii Real Estate, and doing so with less stress to you!
