The highly anticipated Ka Malanai condos in Kailua are coming soon! Here is the latest announcement.....Estimated sales will begin this summer. I also took a picture last week from Kailua Road. Not the greatest pic, but it shows the construction site of the first of 6 buildings being built. The project has posted 4 floor plans so far. There are 2 bedroom floor plans, one 1287 sf and the other 1270 sf interior. Then there are 3 bedroom floor plans, one 1515 sf, and the other 1529 sf interior. Compared to the other condos in the area, these tend to be a little more roomy inside. They still haven't revealed HOA fees or list prices yet.......  You have the choice of purchasing these condos independantly, directly with DR Horton when the lottery is announced, or be represented by a Realtor a...

This is a follow up blog about this new listing that entered the market last week Monday. Broker's open had over 70 brokers and public groups that came through this past Thursday. This Sunday there were 40-50 groups. I was fortunate enough to get featured on the Honolulu Star Advertiser, and a BONUS ARTICLE below from the Honolulu Magazine which was a pleasant surprise! The writer was nice enough to email me the link to her article. The interesting thing that I experienced on this Sunday open house, was that people lingered at the house. By 5:00pm there were still people there not only walking through, but in one of the master suites where there are lounge chairs, there were people sitting and talking, I looked outside, there were people sitting on the blue lounge chairs, and bench hang...

I like to give you an update on this below article I wrote last year. The price was reduced to $8,950,000 awhile ago. It just closed for $8,000,000. Wouldn't it be nice to be the happy owner! For the majority of us.......we can at least DREAM :) Imagine having access to your own secluded beach in Lanikai?  Lanikai beach is recognized to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is a small community located in Kailua on Oahu. A long strip of sparkling white sand, endless sunshine and the deep turquoise water make Lanikai simply irresistable. It is considered by many local residents to be the best swimming beach on Oahu. Many people kayak to the nearby poplular Mokulua Twin Islands, both noted bird sanctuaries. It is also very popular with boaters, surfers, paddlers, and sail...

The Hillcrest neighborhood in Kailua had 10 home sales in 2012. This area was a little slower moving than most in Kailua with an average of 127 DOM.  All the homes sold for or just under asking price with the average sale price for 2012 at $912,270. The home in this area are a bit more upscale and expensive than in some of the faster moving areas of Kailua, which may account for some of this extra time on the market.  The Hillcrest neighborhood has beautiful views overlooking the Enchanted Lake neighborhood of Kailua and ocean, making the homes there desirable to many.

Making the decision to move to Hawaii was one of the best decisions my husband and I ever made.  I had previously lived on Maui and now we live on Oahu.  We’ve been here in Hawaii almost 9 years now, not including Maui time.  My own past took me to San Francisco, Portland, San Diego, and Phoenix. My husband is from Boston and he has traveled the world with the Marines Corp.  Both of us have lived in and seen some pretty great cities and towns, around the world, but Oahu, Hawaii still ranks as our favorite place to live. Source: perfectbucketlist.tumblr.com via Home Shoppe Hawaii on Pinterest   What’s not to like?  The weather is perfect; the beaches are beautiful. Just about everywhere you look there is a view or a rainbow.  Well, there’s actually a little more to it than that.  Continu...

Kailua has established international notoriety with its fabulous beaches and views. It is also a favorite location and been visited by many celebrities as well as President Obama and his family. I would say last year and now this year, the market has taken off big time on Oahu in general. Kailua is crazy right now!!! Our inventory is probably historically low along with the interest rates. There are agents/buyers just swarming over new listings and this one is a prime example. This quaint and lovely property entered the market last week by Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties. I visited the brokers open on Thursday and it was like a party. There were at least 30-40 people previewing the property flowing in and out of the house on a consistent basis. The location of this property is a coup...

Your Simple Guide to Preparing Your House To Be SOLD!  So you are planning to sell your house. Of course you want top dollar right? Here are a few tips on preparation to get it ready to be shown and sold.  Approximate Time Required: 7-14 days  Here’s How:  De-Personalize and Emotionally Detach From Your Home:  *You need to make the mental and emotional decision to “let go”.  Look forward to the future and remember why you are selling.  *You should go to your local packaging/box store and purchase boxes that you will be able to store the things you plan to keep and take with you.  *Most homes show better with less furniture to make the rooms appear larger. Leave just enough furniture in each room to showcase the room’s purpose.  *You need to consider where your filled boxes and extra fur...

Enchanted Lake neighborhood had a big year in sales, with 46 transactions in 2012. The average sale price in Enchanted Lake rose to $814,439. The list to sale price percentage averaged out to 100%, so that tells you there were many full price and over asking sales. The average Days on Market (DOM) was 64, so property moved relatively quickly. This is a popular neighborhood, as it is one of the more affordable areas of Kailua. Enchanted Lake homes sold in 2012 ranged from cute remodeled homes on small lots to more expansive lakefront homes like the one below, sold by Home Shoppe Hawaii. Enchanted Lake includes canalfront, lakefront and golf course homes in Kailua. (Continued ...)
