Hawaii Fixer Upper homes and condos

Hawaii fixer upper homes

Are you looking for a fixer upper house, condo or townhome?  These properties either need of major repair or are tear downs.  It's a challenge to buy one and turn it into a dream home.  However, money saved and the satisfaction of "doing it yourself" can make some fixer uppers a bargain.

Hawaii fixer upper homes, condos and townhomes

The majority of fixer uppers are single family homes.  Condos and townhomes are less likely to be "tear downs" because the structures are owned by home-owner associations - not a single owner, as is often the case with homes.  Homeowners associations will be more responsive to making repairs and less likely to neglect a condo or townhome.  Sometimes condos and townhomes are listed as "needing major repair" because the interiors kitchens, bathrooms, flooring etc. need to be replaced.

These property listings are throughout the Hawaiian Islands.  You'll find homes in Waimanalo, Makaha and Pupukea on Oahu.  Big Island homes in Hilo, Kamuela and Kona are sometimes listed as well.

What to watch for with Hawaii fixer upper homes

With older homes made of wood, termite damage is a primary consideration.  Homes that have not been treated and repaired can sometimes be ready to tear down after 50 years or maybe less.  Redwood homes are termite resistant (termites don't like the taste of redwood).

Ground settlement is another problem in some neighborhoods.  Areas with homes built on hillsides or on loose soil sometimes have settlement and the homes need to periodically be adjusted to keep the floors level.  If left unattended, a house will go out of shape and get crooked floors, cracked walls and maybe even broken plumbing lines.

These are a sample of the fixer uppers available.  For a more detailed list by price range or neighborhood, contact us with the form below.

If you primarily need a low price, try searching Ewa Beach, West Loch and Waianae.  These are some of our most affordable neighborhoods on Oahu.  If you simply must have an affordable house in town, take a look at Palolo homes.

Mike was awesome. He was very patient and understanding with us. There were times where we just wanted to put things on hold due to the frustration however Mike stuck in with us. We truly appreciate all that he has done for us and will definitely recommend hom to any family or friends that are looking to buy a home. Alton and Janeen K. - August 2018
Excellent customer service! We bought and sold our home with Mike, he is the best realtor in Hawaii. Jerry and Candace G. - July 2018
I was nervous as a first time home buyer, but Mike handled it really well. He was willing to work with our budget and what we need in our first investment property. I would highly recommend him. Jenny C.
