A group of 11 investors gathered at Honua Studios on the 21st for the February meeting of West Hawaii REIA. John Kennedy started the meeting with the Big Island market update. Bruce Pratt caught the group up on the latest information about the new Hawaii County short-term vacation rental ordinance. The final draft of the ordinance and the proposed rules for enforcement of the ordinance are included in the archives for this month. Our guest speaker, Elmer Solis, presented a thorough presentation on the art and science of wholesaling. He also showed the group his simple formula for determining whether a deal will be profitable and what to offer in a negotiation. John Kennedy finished the night off with the “In the News” segment. Many mahalos to John for stepping in and assisting in Victor’s absence!
