What if There Are NO Lanikeha Homes For Sale?

That's actually very possible. Since this is a very new neighborhood, only 48 have been built so far. In that case, you will need to purchase some land for sale at Lanikeha and build your dream home! Then the big question becomes "Who Do I Hire as the Builder" Naturally you will want to find the best builder in Lanikeha. That combination of reputable and reasonably priced (ie does not OVER charge!) is tough to find. Call me at 808-298-2030 and I will be happy to give you my top three suggested builders in the Lanikeha neighborhood. (Be sure to watch the video below of my full neighborhood tour with aerial drone video, smooth hyper time lapses of every street, and a tour of the Lanikeha clubhouse)

Hawaii Fix and Flip - An Endless Market

Many of my best clients are investors looking to buy homes or condos for both fix and flip and/or long term hold.
