Will falling prices in Hawaii Real Estate attract new home buyers?

Aloha to all of you in love with Hawaii,
How many times have you dreamed of Hawaii vacation and then after coming back home dreamed of moving to the Hawaiian Islands for good! As most of you know the Hawaii Housing bubble burst with a big bang. Good times for new home buyers!

Read what long time Hawaii realtor Bill Jardine from Big Island Brokers has to say about the current Hawaii Real Estate market:

What is going on with Hawaii Real estate? Post written by Bill Jardine, Hawaii Realtor

"Let’s face it … there are an awful lot of people who would like to live in Hawaii, and a large percentage of those good folks are waiting for prices to go down!
If you figure there are over 70 million Baby Boomers that are about to retire and just one percent of them want to retire to Hawaii, that means the State of Hawaii has to produce 70,000 new units for the Boomer retirees alone! Good grief, that probably can’t be done!

As with any other commodity, Hawaii real estate pricing responds to supply and demand. Based on the Boomer retirement trend, demand is likely to go up … perhaps waay up … in another couple of years. At the same time, the anti-development crowd has been making new development ever more difficult and expensive. The result is that we are liable to see an extreme run up in Hawaii real estate prices soon. But right now ….

The trend in prices for residential real estate in Hawaii is down. Part of that is caused by folks who were dreaming big and now have to adjust their price expectations to the real world, but part is more interesting. There were a lot of speculators in the Hawaii real estate market place just two years ago, and they bet big, which means they are losing big.

For instance, there are Hawaii resort residential condominium projects that were coming on the market even as the real estate recession started to really hit home. Now you can buy resort condominiums in Hawaii at rock bottom prices and may see foreclosure prices even lower than that!

Oceanfront properties on the Big Island and other Hawiian Islands are holding their values, but there were many houses built for speculation alone, and we are seeing an avalanche of price reductions on most normal detached housing units at this time.

It is a great time to buy in Hawaii if you have good credit and can manage to own real estate without having to sell the stuff you all ready have.

Be sure to hire an exclusive buyers agent to represent you in order to get an agent who only cares about your interests. Too often a buyer will go directly to the agency that is selling the property, and in Hawaii that agent is required to report to the seller everything you mention. Full disclosure! Aloha, Bill Jardine – Big Island Buyers Brokers LLC"

We thank Bill for his great insight on the current Hawaii Real Estate market. So, if your are looking for a home to buy in Hawaii, take Bill's advice and look for a buyer's agent, who doesn't sell real estate and has nothing to sell, so there is no conflict of interest.

Good luck for finding your perfect Hawaii home or golfcourse condo for the retired couple for living in Hawaii for good. Aloha, Pua Hawaii Vacations Real Estate

Ever wanted to visit the Big Island Ironman for your Hawaii vacation

Visit Hawaii for the Kona Ironman 2007or even wondered what it would be like to be an athlete participating in the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon in Kona on the Big Island?

Read our blog post and you might want to stay with the visiting crowd as the majority of thousands of tourists does. Watch a spectacle of a life time! I must admit though being a spectator is not as rewarding and adrenaline rush pushing as the guy who finishes his first Ironman. To make it across the finish line before midnight, when the clock stops counting, is for many the accomplishment which they will tell their kids in years to come: I did it. I finished the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon!

As an athlete myself, I have the biggest respect for anybody who can say that of himself or herself. I was never challenged by the urge to try. Maybe it was my close encounter with the physical and psychological battle it takes to literally survive the day of the Ironman competition. It was at the1992 Big Island Triathlon in Kona. I had graduated from the Hawaiian massage school in Kona, passed my state licence exam and volunteered, like all my other massage therapist friends from my class, to massage the triathletes after the triathlon race.

Well, to tell you the truth, I did not know what I had volunteered for. To cut a long story short, the 1992 Hawaii Ironman was becoming my own marathon, massage marathon that was! I started massaging at 3pm, not the winner of the race - for the record, I had to check who the winner was in 1992 (Mark Allen) - but guys who were hurt and had dropped out early. Believe it or not, I had to throw the towel at midnight. With just half an hour break, I had to quit. 'Only' 9 hours of marathon massage! What made these triathlete guys and women not quit and keep going for hours and hours in the 'flash eating' sun of Hawaii or down pours of the 2006 Ironman, the challenging trade winds blowing in their faces on their way from Kona to Hawi with lots of uphill struggles and finally, when they are already exhausted to their core, to run the marathon?!

Watch the 2006 Hawaii Ironman video. Competitors have 17 hours to finish! See for yourself what it takes to be an Ironman to accomplish a 2.4-mile ocean swim, 112-mile bike race and 26.2-mile run in one day!

This Ironman video is about the rivalry between Mark Allen and Dave Scott. It shows Mark Allen defeating for the first time Dave Scott in the 1989 Ironman. This race was one of the most remarkable in Ironman history!

Kona visitors waiting on Alii Drive for the Ironman swimming to startNow, we got you all hyped up for a visit of the 2007 Ironman in Kona, Big Island. OK it's still almost 4 weeks to the Ironman competition on Saturday October 13. You might still get a fall flight special to Hawaii but make sure to have a room before you book. Kona hotals and Kona vacation rentals are booked. Look for vacation rentals or condos north of Kona at Waikoloa Village and south of Kona at Captain Cook and Kealakekua. Get early into Kona on the day of the Ironman competition to find a parking space and secure your spot on the Pier at Alii Drive to watch the most spectacular start of the Ironman, when thousands of athletes jump in the ocean at the same time. Get caught up in the 2007 Ironman Triathlon World Championship frenzy, an experience of a lifetime!

As usual, let us know what you think about the Hawaii Ironman, the athletes, sunny Kailua-Kona and whatever! Can't wait to hear from you. Mahalo and aloha, Pua Kohala Coast Vacation Guide
Don't forget your camera and read the tips for taking photos in Hawaii by renowned Hawaii photographer Jennifer Crites. She might come up with some special ones for the Ironman. My photos of Norman Stadler and Faris al Sultan on their bikes were not too impressive (more like a blur, to be honest), unfortunately...after waiting for hours in the hot sun of Hawaii!

5 Best Photo Tips for your Hawaii vacation by Hawaii photographer

This blog post is sponsored by Hawaii Stretch Video Sale

Hooray the photo tips from Hawaii photographer Jennifer Crites are here!

Jennifer, renowned Honolulu photographer and Hawaii travel writer, will use some great samples of her Hawaii stock photos for showing you how to take photos on your Hawaii vacation. These photo tips by an experienced Hawaii photographer will help you taking perfect photos of your Hawaii vacation to share with family and friends. Also visit our blog post interview with Jennifer how she became a Hawaii photographer. Get ready for Jennifer's Hawaii photo tips:

"1. Know your camera, and bring your instruction book with you in case you need to refer to it."

Couple on beach in HawaiiWhen I’m approached by people asking for photography advice, one of my suggestions is to use the camera’s flash to fill in facial shadows outdoors. This portrait was taken using flash to add sparkle to the couple’s faces. Most cameras, no matter how simple, have a ‘forced flash in daylight’ option, but camera owners are frequently unaware of how to make their camera do this. A lot of fun camera controls go unused because it’s easier, but not necessarily better, to leave all the settings on automatic. When taking a photo of people in the shade, automatic exposure would leave them dark against the bright, sunny background as the camera tries to balance the two extremes of light. But by using flash, I am able to balance the foreground and background light to make a pleasant, natural looking photo.

"2. Keep it simple and uncluttered: Identify a main subject for each photo."

King Kamehameha statue in front of the Hawaii State Judiciary building, downtown HonoluluIt could be a beautiful beach, an ancient Hawaiian heiau (temple), a fruit stand on the Road to Hana, or Kilauea Caldera on the Big Island. Then zoom or move in to eliminate everything that doesn’t apply to that main subject: cars, houses, telephone poles. You get the idea. My main subject in this photo is the lei-draped King Kamehameha statue in front of the Hawaii State Judiciary building in downtown Honolulu. Also some subjects beg for close-ups. At that fruit stand, move in on the ripe pineapples and let the other colorful fruits provide the background. Or shoot the proprietor’s hand as she holds a papaya. The possibilities are endless.

"3. Watch the light: Is the strong Hawaii sunlight making your subjects squint?"

Rare Silversword plant on top of Haleakala volcano on MauiPut them in the shade of a building or tree and watch eyes open up. Or put the sun behind them. Backlight is beautiful. Just remember to use fill flash to light faces. An open sky reflects light from the sun and becomes a big, soft light source for lovely face lighting. Avoid strong overhead light when the sun is high in the sky, or use fill flash to lighten those dark shadow areas. Be careful not to look directly at the sun when taking Hawaii sunset pictures; doing so can cause eye damage. Instead, partially hide the sun behind palm branches or something that breaks up the harsh directional rays. Placing the sun behind this rare silversword plant on top of Haleakala volcano on Maui, protected my eyes and gave the photo some beautiful backlighting.

"4. Look for details: "

Hawaiian man’s hand using a poi-pounderOnce you’ve taken that picture of outrigger canoes on a beach, look for photos within the photo. On one canoe I found an airbrushed portrait of a lovely woman with a plumeria flower in her hair. I also shot a closeup of the lashing, where the outrigger is attached to the boom of the canoe. While photographing Lyon Arboretum on Oahu, I found an image of a palm tree carved into a wooden bench. A closeup of this Hawaiian man’s hand using a poi-pounder to mash cooked taro into poi makes an interesting detail photo. Adding details will make your photo “story” richer.

"5. Frame-up:"

Maui’s Iao ValleyKeep your viewers’ eyes in the photo by framing your subject. Flowers, trees, an archway, rocks.....anything can be a frame as long as it’s around the edges of the photo and doesn’t take attention away from your subject. Get creative. In a photo of Mom shopping in Lahaina, have someone hold two aloha shirts closer to the camera and on either side of Mom. Voila! You have a flowery frame. In this photo taken in Maui’s Iao Valley, the stream, as well as the hills on upper right and left, all frame the Iao Needle and lead the viewer into the photo.

These are just a few tips that can help you take beautiful pictures of your Hawaii vacation. Please feel free to send in questions, and I’ll be glad to answer in future posts on Best Hawaii vacation blog. Aloha, Jennifer"
