Hawaii Residential Fix & Flip Insights from a Local Lender

Year after year, the Hawaii housing market draws in numerous home buyers and investors. Many see Hawaii as an island paradise renowned for its exceptional lifestyle and promising opportunities, especially for residential fix and flippers. According to Cory Nemoto, co-founder of KÉCŌ CAPITAL in Honolulu, HI, the most common investment strategy among investors in the community is fix and flip for two reasons. One, because there is a lot of inventory that is older and needs renovation and two, because of the high equity, high appreciation market in HI. “We’re definitely a poor cash flow market. So, what investors do here is, they flip houses, they build a piggy bank and then they find a cash flow market somewhere on the mainland that is more suited for cash flow,” Cory says.

According to KÉCŌ CAPITAL the types of rehab projects that are most beneficial for both the investor and the lender in HI are ones that have a lot of equity in the deal, showing that there are big margins for profit for the investor and also suggests less risk for the lender. “You want to make sure that you’re getting into a good deal, not one that’s playing on skinny margins, especially here in Hawaii because since a lot of our loans and deals out here are sometimes in the millions, you need a wider margin. One, to make sure that the return is worth the risk. And two, is to insulate, because anything can happen during a project, and no project really goes 100% as planned. Sometimes you go over budget, sometimes it takes longer to sell. So we want to make sure that our investors are buying right, Cory suggests.

Cory also stresses the fact that although the residential rehab market in HI presents a lot of opportunities, these projects typically don’t yield the same rapid turnaround compared to other states. Investors are typically faced with challenges of long lead times in permitting and delivery of materials, especially in the higher end luxury space. “It’s not uncommon for projects to take over 12 months here even for a single family home. So you want to make sure you as the investor, are aware of that and you’re factoring that into your numbers and your deals here. And as a lender, same thing, you want to make sure that you are providing your borrower or your investor enough time on the loan so that they’re not stuck within 12 months, especially if it has to go through the city and county with permitting,” Cory advises.


KECO Capital, LLC logo


KÉCŌ CAPITAL, LLC was formed by real estate investors Kekoa-Michael Lwin and Cory Nemoto. As investors who have borrowed millions of dollars in private financing themselves across multiple states and markets, they both saw a huge need in the marketplace to provide affordable capital to investors by investors. They have built a unique product especially designed for fix and flip investors, where the focus is on how much the borrower is putting up front. They will go up to 90% of the purchase price depending on the type of market and will fund 100% of the renovation budget. In addition, for qualified experienced borrowers who have done five deals in the last three years, they will also fund the renovation in advance instead of arrears up to 20% to 25% of the budget after closing and can wrap 100% of the interest into the loan.
