Our Raving Fans United to Prevent Listings from Being Hidden

When the Board of Realtors told OahuRE.com to hide all pending, withdrawn, and expired listings, we asked our raving fans for help.

They responded and sent a strong message to the Board through 300+ emails, 280+ Facebook comments, and 1,100 likes on our Facebook post.

The Board of Realtors then reversed their decision and now allows OahuRE.com to show all listings.

We would like to say, "Thank You!" to our raving fans for supporting OahuRE.com and making sure buyers and sellers continue to have access to all listings.

Freedom of information prevails for Oahu Home Buyers and Sellers

No Hidden or Disappearing Listings

On other websites, you might notice homes you are interested in disappearing. This is because they do not show you all status options.

For example, Zillow and Trulia do not show In Escrow Not Showing and Withdrawn. If a home goes into one of those status options, it simply disappears from their site. We show you everything, so nothing disappears, and you can get a complete set of comparables with nothing missing.

Another example as of June 2017 HiCentral was showing 23,138 listings compared to 254,542 listings we are showing. We do not hide listings.

Buyers and Sellers Must Know the Comparables

Having good comparables is one of the most important pieces of information a buyer or seller need. Without good comparables, sellers might price their home wrong and see their property not sell, or price too low and see it sell for less than they could have received. A buyer without good comparables might end up paying too much for a property.

We provide a range of options as shown below to give you good comparables with only 1 click. Using these options, the computer does the hard work for you by analyzing various search options and comes up with the best comparables available.

Color Coding to Easily Know Property Status

Active 10 Days or Less on Market.

Only a status of "Active" is available for sale. If it is not Active you might want to add it to your Watch List to see if it becomes Active again.

Active 11 Days or More on Market.

In Escrow Showing.

The property is in escrow and they are still showing and looking for a backup offer.

In Escrow Not Showing.

The property is in escrow and they are not showing the property anymore. Sometimes agents wait until a property is close to closing to change it to In Escrow Not Showing.

Some sellers prefer not to keep showing as soon as they go into escrow, so this status is added immediately.

Sold

The property was sold and is now a good comparable sale.

Withdrawn or Expired.

All Withdrawn and Expired status are not available but check the history to see if it was listed under a new MLS#.

Withdrawn or Expired properties can be added to your Watch List by TMK# to know when it is for sale again.

Counter and Multiple Offer Calculator

One of the biggest challenges buyer's face is getting their offer accepted, especially if there are multiple offers or you receive a counter offer. This calculator will help you see how much you will pay per day to increase your offer.

Many people think in terms of the total dollar amount of the increase, but assuming you are getting a loan, the change to your payment can be nominal. For example, at 4.5% interest rate, increasing your offer by $5,000 adds less than $1 dollar per day to your loan payment. It is critical to have this information easily available to help in your decision-making process.

Mortgage Savings Calculator

Our Mortgage Savings Calculator is unique in that it gives you the total interest paid, and how much interest you can save if you pay extra each month. We also show you interest saved for 5, 10, 15 years, etc., using an amortization table. We do this because we know not everyone will stay in their home for 30 years.

While most buyers diligently negotiate the purchase price, they forget that a much larger expense is the interest paid on your loan. For example, a property that you buy at $500,000 with 20% down, ends up costing an additional $329,627 in interest over the course of a 30-year loan assuming a 4.5% interest rate.

While you might be able to cut $5,000 off the price of the property during negotiations, you have a much bigger opportunity to save money by reducing your total interest paid. Putting only $100 per month extra would save you $35,400.
