Waikoloa Condo Sales Drop as Low as 70K

Wow! June saw not one but two condo sales in Waikoloa that closed in the $70,000 range.

Elima Lani unit #404, listed at $98,000, actually closed at $73,500. And Fairway Terrace B101, a 2 bed / 2 bath unit listed at $83,900, closed at $77,500. These were both REO’s, or bank-owned properties, that had already gone through foreclosure. In addition, Fairways F1029, also a 2 bed / 2 bath, sold at $94,500.

All told, there were six sales in June for Waikoloa Village condos as Waikoloa continues to show healthy sales numbers. A one bedroom in the Waikoloa Villas sold for $155,000, and the top sale price of the month went to a unit in the Paniolo Gardens at $200,000.

A second Elima Lani unit, yet another REO, sold for $123,000. This second floor unit had some tile upgrades, but was not a prime-on-the-golf-course location. For anyone who has been told to avoid REO’s, I’d say take a look at what happened here. That in one month, two similar REO condos can sell in the same complex, but one for 60%  less than the other.

How can you go wrong buying an REO when it’s a condo at Elima Lani for $73,500? (For those of you that are wondering what bank it was that would go so low, it was HSBC Bank USA National Association.)
