I thought I was on an episode of HOARDERS While looking at homes for sale in Wailuku Heights with a client the other day we had an appointment to see a brand new Wailuku Heights listing .  Well not really an appointment, more like a window of opportunity/feeding frenzy, as the listing agent was letting everyone come by for one hour.  It's a court ordered sale and $499,000 is a good price for this neighborhood.  There was a small crowd of curious people.   From the outside the home looked normal, and even modest for the neighborhood.  Many homes in here are valued over $1M and it's a highly desirable area for Maui residents who are moving up in the world.  You'll find a lot of Maui professionals living here, including doctors and lawyers, pilots and accountants.   Inside the home it was...

  Foreclosure Protester 2/4/2011 There was a bit of a scene at the Wailuku Foreclosure Auction on Friday the 4th of February. A protester showed up and made some relevant points and that the same time made some points that seems far from truth. The protester became louder and harassed verbally; until the Foreclosure Auctions were disturbed a total of four (4) times. For the RECORD we all have the right to freedom of expression and to protest in a “non violent” “non threatening” way. Yet in these factual matters I found myself to feel threatened, scared, and uneasy for the safety of all others, this protester just would not back down. Though we have seen protesters before, multiple times, none of them gave me a feeling of something could go wrong. The next I do believe that law enforceme...

Foreclosure Wednesday 2/2/11 There were No Foreclosures today, something is going on this is the third day in a week with No Foreclosures. Any insight to this would be helpful!? Is it the supreme court case? Is it the Banks willingness to work out short sales and modifications. Are people filing for bankruptcy? Have people caught up with their past debts? Or are the banks just waiting for the market to stabilize and level off? Is the grey inventory, shadow inventory too high on Maui? I will say that everyone on Maui has been active and writing offers, some of our greatest condo's are now below $100,000.00     I need input, any input is good input.    Why do you think is the reason the banks have not foreclosed in several days on Maui?

Foreclosure Friday 1/28/11 Maui was spared all foreclosures today. For change we were just looking at 16 properties facing foreclosure, usually we see about 70 to 100 foreclosures on a Friday. This week there seemed to be low in foreclosures and we were seeing a few cancellations.

YouTube video driving tour of Wailuku Heights Wailuku Maui HI 96793I've been getting a lot of inquiries lately from people who want to move to Maui.  That's not so unusual if you've been here and fallen in love with the beauty of this island paradise.  What's strange though is that more and more of these buyers want to make the move here without having ever been to Maui.  I think it's very brave for somebody to be so dedicated.  To help prospective Maui buyers get a feel for the different neighborhoods, I try to blog about things that they will find useful and interesting.  Video is a great way of connecting with these buyers!Wailuku Heights is an older Maui neighborhood that's pretty much built out except for a few vacant lots.  Homes date from the 80's and 90's mostly, but there are s...

Maui Dining - A Saigon Cafe in Wailuku is always a winner If you love good Vietnamese food in a friendly atmosphere, then you must try the Saigon Cafe in Wailuku Maui.  This restaurant has been a favorite of ours ever since some friends turned us on to it many years ago.  It's nothing fancy, and the location is a little tucked away, but it's sure worth finding this hidden treasure. The menu is extensive with plenty to please every diner, including vegetarians.  Curries and noodles, hot soups, spring rolls, seafood, meats and chicken.  So many choices and not enough room for it all!  Come hungry or go home with a doggie bag because servings are large and filling.  The wait staff are very engaging and fun, and you'll enjoy hanging out here no matter what. We went on Friday night, which is...

The Maui Red List has added a You Tube Channel What a year it has been, Maui has seen an all new level on the foreclosure auction steps. The advancement of high tech gear (for low prices) and the availability of the internet at our finger tips has given us a chance to film and upload many of the foreclosure real estate auctions. If you’re interested in any of these recorded foreclosure auctions please let us know, we have 100’s more that have not been uploaded. Collecting this data has been time consuming, yet we have used it time and time again to help all parties involved in the foreclosure process.
