Huge Ocean Views In Pualani Estates – 75-658 Opikanalani, Back On The Market!

Pualani Estates is a very popular new home development in Kailua Kona. Currently in the third (and possible) final phase of building, there are a limited number of homes to be built. Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with numerous Buyers and Sellers in Pualani Estates. To date this year I have sold 3 NEW homes in Pualani, along with 1 resale in the development.

Homes in Pualani Estates are great offerings for a variety of reasons.

1.The pricing! These new homes are offered in the low-mid $400,000 price point!

2. The developer offers a 10 year builder warranty.

3. Homes are upgrade & customize friendly! Owners can include central air conditioning, stainless steel appliances, extended lanai and different landscaping options.

75-658 Opikanalani, also known as Lot 76 in Pualani Estates was the home that numerous Buyers were looking forward to.  With HUGE ocean views, and located near the top of the development this was the property to have!  This is a NEW HOME developer offering  that is a 3bed/2bathroom, Tiare model offered at $460,000. This hit the market to much fanfare and it was off to the races. There were multiple offers made, and the property went into escrow very quickly. 

In breaking news….the property has fallen out of escrow and is back on the market!

The home is currently under construction, with an expected completion date of February 2014. To see further information on this property click here.

NEW HOME SOLD In Pualani Estates!

We closed yesterday morning on a 3bed/2bath Orchid model floor plan in DR Horton’s wildly popular new home development, Pualani Estates!

Pualani Estates, New Homes In Pualani Estates, Pualani Estates Information, Kailua Kona Real Estate

My client is a close friend who I’ve known since I was probably about 11 years old, and to see him get into his own, BRAND NEW home, was absolutely fantastic. There may not be a better feeling in real estate than getting a first time home buyer into their first home!

The home was financed through DHI Mortage, the developer’s on site lender. One of the benefits of using DHI Mortgage is the closing cost credit, generally in the thousands of dollars that is offered to Buyers who finance through DHI! This greatly reduces, if not eliminates completely, any closing costs a Buyer would usually be responsible for paying.

Homes in Pualani Estates are great offerings for a variety of reasons. 1.The pricing! These new homes are offered in the mid-high $300,000 price point!  2. The developer offers a 10 year builder warranty. 3. Homes are upgrade & customize friendly! Owners can include central air conditioning, stainless steel appliances, extended lanai  and landscaping options.

One of biggest draws is the location of Pualani Estates. Homeowners are minutes away from beaches, goods and services, along with a variety of island activities.

New homes in Pualani Estates are SELLING extremely quickly. This home, and another home in the subdivision I have in escrow currently, were put into escrow long before the house was finished being built. The developer can’t build the homes quick enough to keep up with the market demand!

This is the fourth Pualani Estates home I have SOLD, with another in escrow, on schedule to close in May. I have represented a variety of Buyers & Sellers in the subdivision, and know the development quite well. More recently, I have closed a Melia model, Pualani Estates short sale on Haku Mele Street, and a Makana model on Hoomama Street.

If you have any questions on the subdivision, floor plans or area in general, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m happy to help!

Take a look at the finished Orchid model below, and imagine yourself in a NEW, Pualani Estates home!

Kailua Kona Real Estate: Winter, Our Busy Season Has Arrived!

The Kailua Kona real estate winter season has officially arrived! Our lovely town is full of visitors from all over the world out enjoying the sun and sea.

Luxury Real Estate, Big Island Real Estate, Kailua Kona Real Estate, Kona Real Estate, Kona Real Estate Blog, Kailua Kona Real Estate Blog

Historically, December through February are our busiest real estate months, and this year has already been rocking and rolling!

New Year’s Eve I received an email from a Buyer interested in a Holualoa property. After coming into my office and discussing their wants and needs, the luxury condo route seemed like a better fit. We spent some time in the Mauna Lani area, and found them the perfect unit in the Golf Villas at Mauna Lani! We are currently in escrow, with an early March close date.

This past Friday morning, a buyer called in to view my listing on Mahilani Drive. I showed the home, and they expressed interest. The couple also had interest in the homes offered in Pualani Estates. So off we went to view that development  They fell in love instantly, and wanted to make an offer straight away. Wanting to make sure these buyers were well informed and had all the information they needed to make a strong offer, I suggested we take a lunch break, then adjourn to my office for a look at the comparables and current market pricing. We did all of this, and within a few hours submitted an offer to the developer. We came to terms the next day!

Last, but certainly not least….my Mahilani Drive listing, which has had tremendous interest since the day we hit the market,  we put into escrow yesterday! My Sellers are over the moon, and the soon to be owners are getting a wonderful home with fantastic views & potential!

If you are interested in seeing what our market is currently offering, I’ve recently implemented a  property search to my blog! You are now able to access any property for sale on the Big Island! You can search by district, size, price, etc, etc.

Remember, well priced properties aren’t staying on the market for long. Many times, we are seeing multiple buyers submitting offers on the same property. The market in Kona has changed dramatically, if you like a property, make your move now! If the property is priced right, it won’t be available for long.

Enjoy your property searching, and please contact me with any questions you may have!
