Buying Advice

First Time Home Buyers in Hawaii | How to Get Started

This is for all you first-time home buyers IN HAWAII, including our amazing military men and women.

First things first…

Meet with Your Local Lender

Knowledge is everything. A trusted lender can quickly give you an idea of the loan amount you qualify for and how much home you can afford.

Reach out to Tim O’Leary at Prime Lending with any questions!

Pre-approval letters are KEY for any buyer seriously looking for a home.  Pre-approval is standard once you begin submitting offers!

Narrow Down What You’re Looking For

After understanding what you’re qualified for, you’ll need to establish what is important to you and become realistic about what that means. How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you absolutely need? Is the resort-lifestyle more desirable than having your own yard? If so, check out Mauna Luan. Location, location, location — so where do you want to live?

Meet with Your Local Realtor

Your Hawaii Life Realtor has a job to create the opportunity to find YOUR forever home. I see it as an opportunity. My job is a continuous search to find your home.
