Bank Owned Homes - Kihei Maui Hawaii Tomorrow will be spent looking at a lot of Bank Owned homes, and short sales in Kihei Maui. Not all of these properties are bad looking either, in fact, many of them are only a few years old, and the owners have fallen victim to the poor economy and the so-called real estate bubble bursting.  One man's loss is another man's gain.  So with sheets of listings in hand I'll be taking a client around to see what the market has to offer in the way of distressed properties for sale. Buyers - there is so much selection right now, that you can afford to be picky!  Pick one or two you like and make some offers.   Currently for sale in Kihei Maui, short sales and REO homes start at $280,000 and go up to $1,995,000.  That last one is beachfront. We're going to t...

  .  . How to effectively sell your condo in a slow Maui market?  Luana Kai Condominium Kihei We all know that the real estate market has really slowed down.  Maui condos for sale are not exempt from this current market. So what can I do to sell my Maui home or condo more effectively?  Pricing your condo to current sales in the last three months is really important.  Have your Realtor do a price comparable of condos recently sold.  You might also think about getting an early appraisal.  This will also help all potential buyers, and sellers get a reality check. In some cases you might price a little under the last sale, being the market is still slow and hasn't hit bottom, or it is close lets hope.  Clean Decor I would recommend getting an early home inspection.  This will save you time,...

Maui Dining - The Greek Bistro in Kihei 2511 S. Kihei Rd.Kihei, HI 96753808 879-9330 We just got back from a vacation in Canada, which included a stop in Vancouver B.C.  One of the things we love about Vancouver is the amazing variety of restaurants, and especially Greek restaurants.  I would have to say that I don't think I can ever tire of eating Greek food, and hopefully one day I can visit that country and experience Greek food at the source. On Maui there is a real shortage of Greek restaurants, so the Greek Bistro in Kihei really stands out.  These guys have been in business for over twenty years, so you know they're doing it right.  Check out these menu items: Hummus & Pita Bread  $9.00 Bistro's Calamari  $10.00 Mediterranean Salad  $6.00 or $10.00 Chicken Souvlaki Dinner  $19.00...

I posted a few weeks ago Google Voice Opens the Flood Gates Today which generated a lot of discussion.  I've been asked both online and offline about what I thought about it now that I've had a chance to use it.  So here it is.First thing, although I signed up for Google Voice a very very long time ago, it still took weeks to get my invite, so this indeed is a fresh opinion because I've been using it now for about a week.Here's what I like about Google Voice and they do well (The Good)1.
