I guess the people who buy these will be smelling more than a R.E.-bubble....

You've just described most of the town of Ko'olina.* (The rest of it costs more than $500K.)

Or you could always take Jason Scott Lee's approach.

(Edited to add the second link.)


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

The Big Island is one of the few desirable and affordable places left in Hawaii. A friend just bought 1/2 acre in Volcano for less than $100K. A similar parcel on Maui would cost 4-5x that.

Some of our wealthiest areas in town surround the landfill. Property values don't seem to be adversely affected to a great extent.
