Don’t Miss This Step

We’ve added yet another new section in the Information Center on the Best of Hawaii Real Estate webMissing This Simple Step Could Cost You Thousandssite (http://bestofhawaiirealestate.com) to help you to better understand the enormous impact our free service could have on your next real estate transaction. Written by some of the most experienced minds on our team, this section is an eye-opener – it uncovers issues that arise in many transactions. For example, do you know what dual agency is? A fully disclosed answer awaits you! You have a choice and we want you to be fully armed.

When you’ve decided to make the real estate plunge, where do you begin? Do you head to the yellow pages? Do you start with a Google search? What phrase do you type in? How can you be sure that you’ve started your search correctly, or that you haven’t made the wrong choice at a fork in the road? How do you get rid of all those “What Ifs”?

If this is your first visit to our website or blog, welcome and let us take a minute to explain how our RE-Direct© technology does the work for you. First, you answer a few simple questions about your real estate goals. Next, our system takes less than thirty seconds to turn your answers into quantifiable attributes. RE-Direct© then compares your results to our ranked database of local Realtors. Instantly the preferences you’ve specified have traveled through the ether of cyberspace directly into the inbox of the exact same Realtor whose professional information is being displayed on your screen. It’s instant and it’s 100 percent free!

Now you have a dynamic new first step in the quest to fulfill your real estate dreams and a direct connection to the agent who best fits your requirement. No more questions, no more stress. It isn’t magic; we simply put the real estate industry where it should be – working for you.

Do real estate professionals take a hit in business as a result? Amazingly enough the answer is no – with willing consumers being connected with the agent most likely to satisfy their needs, there will be more happy buyers and sellers, more transactions completing escrow, and an all together better business environment. It is win-win for everyone involved.

Think of us as the real estate industry’s passive mediator, as a bridge over the strangely empty void between you and the industry’s best professionals. Most importantly, think of us any time you are in the market to buy or sell real estate.


The Job Market’s Greener on the Island Side

The latest addition to our Information Center section – Jobs in Hawaii – that we mentioned Thursday is complete and live.

We’ve approached this section a little differently. We realized that in order to make the point clearly – that Hawaii is a bright spot in a troubled global job market – we needed to stray a bit from our normal light-hearted style.

We’ve included graphs, tables and a whole lot of statistics, all telling you that if you’ve been holding off moving to Hawaii because of the job search, a closer look will offer some very good news that might just change your mind.

Throughout the Great Recession – the term dubbed by mainstream media for this recent economic downturn – Hawaii’s seasonally adjusted unemployment levels have consistently hovered around 70 percent of the nation’s average.

Hawaii’s job market also appears to be recovering at a faster rate than the country as a whole. Recent data show that, while the job market seems to be improving throughout the country, that rate has been turbo-charged here in Hawaii.

Since we’ve grabbed your attention, check out Jobs in Hawaii for more of the good stuff. And remember – more updates are always just around the corner!


An Example to Follow…

The online real estate marketing publication Property Ad Guru has featured our latest update as a shining example of how using real local information gives added value to our service and our website. We have been working hard to update our website to continually include more useful information to assist potential homebuyers.

To quote the blog post, “Best of Hawaii Real Estate is making local information a key part of its strategy… [with] the addition of new ‘top five things to consider’ sections covering each area.”

Property Ad Guru agrees that local, from-the-source information is utterly invaluable to consumers looking for real estate. If you live on the mainland, you can’t simply jump in your car and drive to Hawaii. It’s the isolation, cultural differences and other aspects unique to the area that makes having this local perspective especially important to people considering Hawaii as a long-term living destination.

Similarly, a Google search will typically land you in a sea of results aimed at tourists and short-term vacationers. The information on our site is specifically targeted at people considering a move to (or within) Hawaii. This is good for the industry, good for Hawaii and, most important of all, good for you and your family.

And we’re not done yet! Just today, we’ve released the latest addition to our Information Center – Jobs in Hawaii – detailing how new residents can expect to be received by Hawaii’s current job market… and there’s good news for job seekers.

Experience the best of local Hawaii before you even arrive, only at Best of Hawaii Real Estate.

LIHUE, Hawaii (May 24, 2010) – Starting today, the Best of Hawaii Real Estate website will be releasing a series of updates designed specifically for people who are considering a move to Hawaii.

Harnessing a considerable statewide professional network, the expansion compiles interviews, research and internal resources to create a unique, from-the-source perspective.

Each page features a numbered list of the island’s five most important things to consider for new Hawaii residents, as well as a series of pictures, statistics and interesting factoids. The section has been designated for expansion in the near future.

In addition, keep an eye on the “Information Center” for more new and helpful information. Next up will be “Hawaii Employment Options”, a detailed and to-the-point overview of how you can expect to be received by Hawaii’s job market.
