The Grand Champions in Wailea Maui Hawaii is one of the most affordable vacation rental complexes in this area.  It is wood construction and on a Golf Course with many of the units limited ocean views.  There are one, two, and three bedroom units not featured in many of the other complexes near by.  This location offers near by Shopping (The Shops of Wailea), Plenty of Golf Courses, and Great Beach access.  I have had many people purchase just because of the golf privilege because of savings on Local Resident pricing.   Gary Bland R (S) 808-385-1265Century 21 All IslandsFREE Maui MLS Search http://www.garybland.com/

Here is the famous Wailea Point condo in Wailea Maui Hawaii.  This complex is about twenty years old and still one of the most prestigious condos in Wailea.  The sales have been real strong over the years.  I actually viewed a unit which Sold for 2.8 million and now is back on the market fro 5.6 million.  I know it will sit for a while in todays market.  This is a little to abrupt to buy flip and sell.  I could be wrong.  There was one of the very front units that Sold for 10 Million last year.Gary Bland R (S) 808-385-1265Century 21 All IslandsFREE Maui MLS Search http://www.garybland.com/

Makena Surf****Another fine property in Makena Maui Hawaii.  These are also in the 2.5 to 3 million dollar range.  Makena is going to be the Million Dollar club.  You will not even touch anything less than two million from all the new construction and new Development.  It is the new Malibu Ocean front area that you are sure to enjoy.  There had been a recent sale of 20  million just south of this location.  It may appear to be pricey at first until you review the location.  Let me know if you are interested in finding out more information of sales and new projects here in the area.Gary Bland R (S) 808-385-1265Century 21 All IslandsFREE Maui MLS Search www.garybland.com

I had an interesting meeting today Oct. 30th 2007 with one of Old Republic Marketing personal that is also on Active Rain.  His name that is shared on Active Rain (William Boughton).  I had spent some time expressing my thoughts about how Great the site is and no cost to us as Realtors on down the line.  I mentioned to him that Old Republic title and escrow should ad more of the escrow officers to the site just for information purposes alone.  Just a thought you are not any where near a computer and your clients need to get in touch with an escrow officer for what ever reason. Note:  not everyone has all of the escrow officers numbers in their phone.  Quick Fix Active Rain:  You had your favorite escrow officer (William Boughton) in Active Rain, you can now direct your client to him wit...

The Grand Champions in Wailea Maui, is a world-class resort with spacious villas set amongst lush tropical landscaping.  The resort was completed in 1990 and is comprised of 20 low-rise buildings, with a total of 188 apartments.  Upper floor units have vaulted ceilings for a more airy feel.  A typical 2 bedroom air condtioned unit has over 1,100 sf of living area, and over 200 sf of lanai.  Some units have incredible ocean and fairway views, while others have a more tranquil and private garden view.  A nice selling point of some units is the lock-out feature, where you have 2 entrance doors, and can separate the condo resulting in a full kitchen 1 bedroom unit, and a hotel room with small fridge.  Each unit can then be used separately, depending on need.  There are 2 pools at this popu...

The Short Sale A Viable Alternative to Foreclosure       myhouseonemaui.comEconomic experts have said that the real estate market is not a major factor in the Federal Reserve's true goal of keeping inflation in check - and its recent activity seems to bear this out. By strategically infusing billions of dollars into the banking system and unexpectedly cutting its discount window rate for 30 days, the Fed has clearly attempted to "bail out" the financial and credit markets. The real estate market, however, continues to suffer nearly double the number of foreclosures as it did this time a year ago - one in every 693 US households. In some states, the statistics are even worse, with foreclosures claiming one in every 199 households! Because of this, we will ignore the media hype surroundin...

I did attend many seminar in my real estate career as I strongly believe on education.I went to the 3 days seminar rich dad poor dad on Maui about a month ago.I paid $500 for it and all they did was making you believe that without them it would not be possible to become a real estate investor. They where degrading The real-estate industry by pointing out the Realtor and making them look dishonest and new nothing about what they where doing. Basically to them we where useless...Not only they insulted me and my fellow Realtors but they where using emotional trigger to make people feel that they could only succeed in life with their formula and books.I dind't learned anything and they asked us to pay $32,000 to get a mentor to be in the Real-Estate game...Some people where so naive and bor...
