Sister-blog Kicks-Off Hawaii Month; What to Know About Owning in Paradise


THE Kailua view of the Mokulua Islands

Surf over to for our month-long editorial luau focusing on the Hawai’ian island of Oahu. I’m on the ground and writing up a storm on the second home potential of the 50th state. We started our coverage exploring the cross-pollination between Berkshire Hathaway Hawai’i and Dallas’ Allie Beth Allman (recently acquired by Berkshire Hathaway Home Services).

In the coming weeks I’ll showcase the most expensive real estate Oahu has to offer as well as some of the most reasonable. I’ve detailed the past 30-years of median prices for homes and condos so you can see the appreciation and pitfalls of owning a patch of paradise.

From new (and yet to be built) condos to decades-old homes in established communities. I’ll be here to cover it all and give you the low-down.

By the end of the month, you’ll be wanting to get lei’d like never before!

Remember: Do you have a location you’d like to see featured?  I travel quite a bit and enjoy poking around real estate.  Realtors, have clients who’d like to document their second home journey?  Shoot Jon an email. Marriage proposals accepted (they’re legal)!
