One thing that you have to consider when you're purchasing Hawaii real estate is whether are not you have to start sticking money into the before you start living in it.  If you have to start replacing things right away before you even to move in, you might want to think about another home.  Many of the realtors' or real estate agents will tell you what the house needs and what you need to do the house in order to fix the house.  Make sure the house is already up to standard so that you can move in as soon as you sign the papers.

Another thing that you need to check before you decide to purchase a home is to make sure that it is going to be big enough for you and your family to live and for awhile.  Many people make the mistake of purchasing a home because it is cheap and they think they can add on to it.  Sometimes this may be the case depending on where you are purchasing a house at.  You have to make sure that you check on the building codes where you will be purchasing your house from because every township has different standards of building codes.
