Land for sale? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

Is there any land left for sale on Oahu? When I was there years ago, most of the properties for sale did not include the land they were situated upon. Is this still the case?

Yes there is land. There are only two states that have the leasehold system where you can buy a home and not own the land under it and Hawaii is one of them. When you go looking for a home, you always need to check if it is fee or lease. Of course the shorter the term left on the lease, the less expensive the home...but when it's time to renegotiate or buy out the lease, it can add another 100,000+ that you have to come up with.
