Buy the Home you've Always Wanted
I pulled a complete 180* (weather wise) when I moved to tropical Hawaii from freezing Canada in March of 1996 with my 3 kids (1, 3 and 4 years old). Like most parents, to ensure my kids don't spend too much time watching TV or playing with computers and video games, I spent a lot of time with them at the beach.
After living in Hawaii for 20 years and spending 15 of them in Hawaiian Real Estate, I discovered it's possible to own a Beach front property under $300k. Imagine waking up every day to the calming sound of the ocean, going for a morning walk or run on the beach, having a romantic picnic on the sand, seeing the infinite wonders of the galaxy at night and enjoying picturesque Hawaiian sunsets from your living room lanai for an affordable price.
