Surfview Condo Offers Affordable Honolulu Living in Punchbowl

Ever wonder why real estate in Honolulu is so gosh darn expensive? I have. Especially growing up in Hawaii Kai on the east side of Oahu (high end homes and on the water). I have never seen so little house for so much money than in metro Honolulu.

View from an affordable unit in the Surfview Condominium – all yours for $348,000 fee simple

The average price per square foot for an affordable 3 bedroom condo or townhouse in an area like Hawaii Kai is $496.34. In Makiki and Punchbowl, for a two bedroom condominium unit you are looking to spend $405.74 per square foot—and everything is smaller, and most times, average condition.

But the price is justified because of the convenient location to everything, which includes Ala Moana, Ward, private schools, beaches, shopping, restaurants, friends, downtown, the list goes on and on. It is where my life is. It’s my home and my personal favorite area.

I get to spend less time on the road and more time with my friends, working, or with my clients, because of how close I am to everything. It’s a cool location because of the breezes that pass through from the mountains and also because of its hipness with a wonderful farmers market, local coffee shop, and just all around, the coolest people. It’s a true urban neighborhood.

Caron – you crack me up! I so appreciate your transparency – it’s not every REALTOR who would admit publicly in writing that a listing is “on the freeway” – no wonder your clients love you and are incredibly loyal to you! When I get ready to buy my next investment property – a condo on Oahu – I’m coming to you for “the skinny” – for sure!

Katie – Haha… I am pretty transparent. Want people to be able to be efficient with their time. If they’re not feeling the freeway living, then they can find something else… if not this, always something better. But this is a great unit. And has one room that is not on the freeway. Can’t wait until your ready to invest… so many good things!

Right On Caron! The phrase “conveniently located” doesnt fool anyway. Just say it like it is. These days no one has time to waste. Time is more valuable to me than money or real estate.
