Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) February 13, 2010
Foreclosures in Hawaii have increased by a staggering 286 percent in January, according to RealtyTrac, and Prudential Locations, Hawaii’s largest locally owned and operated real estate company, has responded by launching a website that offers the most complete source of distressed properties on the market. This includes auction block foreclosures and those listed in the MLS, plus bank-owned foreclosures and short sale properties on both Maui and Oahu.
“Prudential Locations is the first company to offer completely free listings of all short sales and foreclosures on both Oahu and Maui,” said Joe Segal, online marketing manager for Prudential Locations. “We list every foreclosure and short sale in the MLS, as well as hand-compile a list of auction foreclosures from the newspaper every week. Others companies may offer this, but charge for the service; ours is free and updated much more frequently.”
The foreclosure and short sale search on Prudential Locations’ website was launched to meet the market’s increased interest in distressed properties. Foreclosures occur when a homeowner defaults on loan payments and the lender files a public default notice. Most often, the lender will take ownership of the property with the intention of re-selling it again. A short sale refers to a situation where more is owed on the home than what it will likely sell for on the market and the bank, or other mortgage lender, allows a sale of the home for less than the mortgage is worth.
A staunch supporter of market intelligence, Prudential Locations believes in putting the information into clients’ hands, rather than selling specific properties. Providing Hawaii foreclosure and short sale listings with advanced search filters free of charge is just another means to help guide individuals to find the most appropriate property.
Prudential Locations’ power-search page allows users to filter foreclosures and short sales by a variety of preferences including price range, region and specific neighborhood; more detailed options incorporate views and frontage, such as ocean, preservation land, golf course or stream and property conditions, from fixer-upper to excellent. One can even filter by specific condominium or home features including pool, single-level home or even an extra dwelling.

Visitors can view the properties through a comprehensive island-wide listing, as well as download the hand-compiled list by clicking on the Hawaii foreclosure or short sale links.
