10 Best Reasons to Buy Hawaii Real Estate in 2010

The other day, I was forwarded a Yahoo! Real Estate article listing the 10 worst mistakes first-time homebuyers have made so far this year. The article paints an all-around gloomy picture of the average American first-time homebuyer – and we think you deserve a little more credit.

Whether you’re new to Hawaii real estate or not, the fact that you’ve found Best of Hawaii Real Estate on the web means you’re researching your decision and, according to Yahoo! Real Estate, are well above the curve when it comes to shopping for the best Hawaii real estate.

Now that we’ve reddened your cheeks with compliments, let us introduce you to Best of Hawaii Real Estate’s official 10 Best Reasons to Buy Hawaii Real Estate 2010:

1. You Can Afford More. As we’ve all learned in the past couple of years, a weak housing market means lower prices on much of the best Hawaii real estate. If you’ve been in the Hawaii real estate market for any length of time, you’ve witnessed the decline of price tags  for the best Hawaii homes across the board. Hawaii homebuyers today have the advantage on their side, and experts agree that this won’t last long.

2. Lowest Mortgage Rates. So you think these low rates mean you can put your hands on some of the best Hawaii homes with even less stress on the bank account? We do too. Have you been hearing that shorter term loans might just be within your grasp? We don’t see why not. The time to lock in a low fixed and/or a shorter term  rate on a mortgage is right now.

3. Expenses That Pay You Back. If the expenses associated with home ownership have been holding back your dreams of buying Hawaii real estate, keep in mind that each dollar you spend maintaining your new Hawaii home is an investment in your future.

4. It Pays To Be Picky. Buying Hawaii real estate isn’t like going to the supermarket to pick up some eggs. With so much on the line for so many years to come, you deserve to take your time with this decision. And it just so happens that waiting is paying off; the variety of homes on the Hawaii real estate market today, compared to two years ago, is amazingly high and prices are at record lows.

Congratulations. You’ve arrived at the best possible buyers market.

Aloha Hawaii

5. The View. In a quiet moment, as you sit on the balcony of your new Hawaii home, on a perfectly 70-something degree evening in mid-January, sipping a Mai Tai and watching the sun set over the blue Pacific waters, your doubts about the strangely colored wallpaper in your bathroom fade away forever.

6. Being Swept Away. It’s a phrase that fits in well with your new Hawaii lifestyle. It also seems to happen a lot here. Let’s review all the different times Hawaii has swept you away: 1) you were swept away with Hawaii’s natural beauty on your first vacation; 2) you were swept away with the possibility of actually living here; 3) you were swept away with the home you decided to buy; 4) you were swept away by the 1000-foot waterfall you saw from the air on a helicopter tour of the island last weekend; and now, 5) you’re dressing up to be swept away by an amazing night of food, music and dancing.

Being swept away has never felt so good!

7. Compromise No Longer Needed. Life in Hawaii is about pure pleasure and bliss, and compromising on your Hawaii real estate purchase is no longer necessary. With Hawaii property prices so low, and mortgage rates continuing to sink, affordable Hawaii real estate is the name of the game now, but act fast – these prices won’t last long!

8. Did We Mention The Weather? In Hawaii the average temperature is 72 and only rises to 79 in August!  Need we say more?
