Learn The Truth (and tips) About Cheap Land and Homes on Hawaii Island

Have you seen lots of land for $75k and homes for $150k on Zillow on the Big Island? Are you thinking, this is a way to make living in Hawaii actually a reality for you? We created this video to help you think twice before you think you found a way to crack the affordable housing solution in Hawaii.
We sat down with Andy Madrid, KW Big Island, and one of our referral partners to give you the real deal on the "steals" you think you are getting in South Hawaii and why they may be steals and not deals.
Things to consider:
Risky lava zones
Unpermitted structures
Inability to get insurance
Having to pay cash and only being able to sell to a cash buyer
Thousands of dollars in clearing and permitting fees
Deep rural area

Here is a map of Hawaiian Oceanview Estates and seeing the lava inundation zone:
