First of all, all my thoughts and prayers are for all my friends and neighbors in Lahaina. This has been devastating to everyone that lives here. I'm here to help. This page contains a lot of useful information and links.

There are resources available to help them, including the grants from the Realtor Relief Foundation where renters and owners can get up to $3,000 to help with housing or hotel costs for those whose place of residence has been damaged.

Now the hard part. You have to think about what you want to do with your property moving forward. It will be a long time for the rebuilding of Lahaina. I'm thinking it will take about 10 years if the government changes the permitting process and 20 years if they don't. So you will need to think if you want to stay here and help do that or move to greener pastures. I have thought a lot about this in the last few days and have decided to stay and help rebuild the town I love.
If you are staying you will need to get an Architect to get plans for your new home and a contractor. The faster you do this the faster your home can be rebuilt.
If you want to leave you will want to know how much your home was worth before the fire. Please click here so I can send you a property report with your home value. You will need to show this to the insurance company so they can send you a check for the building value. Then we sell your property for the price of the land value.
After I send you your property report, I will need to know what you own on your mortgage so I can do a net profit sheet for you. This will show the profit you will make after the sell for you to move on to your new life.
I'm here to help. I'm only charging 1% commission on all these sells and give you the 2.5% marketing package. Please click here to see my marketing page.
I know it will be hard to make this decision. I'm here to help no matter what you decide.
