How to Know if it is Time to Sell Your House in Hawaii

Most homeowners know when they buy their home that at some point they could want or need to sell it again. The reasons one might need to sell their home vary – you could get a job offer in another city or state, a family member might need care, or perhaps you’re growing your family and need more room. Without a circumstance that forces your hand, like the ones previously mentioned, it can be difficult to identify when the best time might be for you to sell.

Are you conflicted about whether or not you should sell your home or maybe just want to know when you should consider selling it? There are many details to assess when making this decision. Read on as we explore the signs that it may be time to sell your home in Hawaii.

Hot Market

A sign that it’s a hot market is when homes consistently sell above the asking price. In a seller’s market, listings don’t stay up for more than a few days – and there are few homes for sale, usually selling by word of mouth before ever making it to the MLS. If you’ve been on the fence about selling and the market is hot, you should take that as a sign that it’s a good time to sell. Talk to one of the team members at Oahu Home Buyers, and we’ll discuss what the best options are for you.

No Room to Grow

Times have changed in the past couple of years. Working from home and home-schooling children is the new norm. Many families are in need of quiet, professional spaces to work. There has also been a growing need for outdoor spaces for cooking, hosting, and other family activities. If you’ve been yearning for these qualities in your home but don’t have the space or time for making those home improvements, it’s likely time to sell your home and move into something more suited to your needs.

At Oahu Home Buyers, we can provide you with a guaranteed closing date and alleviate the pressure of being crammed together in as little as a week. If you need more time, no worries! There’s no rush – we can make arrangements to move on the date that’s best for you.


Maybe there is room for you to expand and make the necessary improvements to serve your needs and increase the home’s value to its highest potential; however, you’ll want to think about the surrounding properties. Consider the principle of conformity, because you’ll never realize that value if your home is too out of sync with your neighbors. At Oahu Home buyers, we can help you determine the current market value of your home, with or without the remodel, comparing it with others to help you make the right choice. Then we’ll compare this with our offer so that you can make an educated decision on which route you’d like to take.


It’s also possible that the home you currently own is just too big for you and your needs. No one wants to have to dust, sweep and maintain rooms or yards that are never being used. Not only is it a physically draining task to have to care for a large property, but it’s also financially draining as well. Think about it – you’re paying the costs per square foot for heating and cooling and the never-ending property taxes. If you have an older home, you’re likely also dealing with more frequent repairs of older systems and continual maintenance to protect structural soundness. If your home is becoming a burden, it’s time to sell. At Oahu Home Buyers, we buy homes from people in many different circumstances, in all kinds of ways. When we purchase your home, you’ll be saving all of the expenses of repairs and prep for the listing and marketing process. We never charge commissions, and there are no hidden fees – you won’t even pay closing costs.

Neighborhood Changes

Neighbors and neighborhoods change; perhaps your quiet family property is now sitting on the edge of a new industrial park. Maybe your once quiet neighborhood mostly made up of families has turned into a party town where the house next door has become a rental property with tenants who are out of control and can make it difficult for agents to show the property. If you’re facing such a nightmare with no solution, it is time to sell your house. At Oahu Home Buyers, we will take on your trouble so you can rest easy. Our goal is to ensure you feel good about the deal long after you leave the closing table.
