This is a picture of a typical house in Hawai'i. That is, run down and about 50 years old yet they are asking $610,000 for it *LOL*
The other day I was telling my husband about the property that I inherited with my sister, mother, and her brother (my uncle.) To make a long story short... the property that I "own" in Hawai'i has nearly doubled in value and it's mainly because more Haole people are moving to Hawai'i and jacking up the property values. NOT A GOOD IDEA.
That is why I urge people to be compassionate. That is, think twice about moving to Hawai'i because you affect local people in a bad bad way. And it's not only the people. It's also the environment and the birds. Seriously. When more people move to Hawai'i... not going have any room left for people LOL (pidgin English) Seriously. I urge people NOT to move to Hawai'i if at all possible. Visit yes... but to many people Hawai'i is home and if more people move there then there will be more pollution, more traffic, and more stress. That is... it will end up killing people because stress kills.
Anyway you can read the story here about the value of homes in Hawai'i: http://the.honoluluadvertiser.com/articlefor
As a property owner it is good news for me but as a human being it is not. That is, it epitomizes how greedy some people are and how rude some people are. Have some compassion for those less fortunate is all I have to say.
