I just previewed several Dry Side Waimea homes – four homes all priced under $450,000, and all of them are in “move-in ready” condition.
Priced at $399,950 (MLS# 268304), this is one of 4 homes under $450,000 in Waimea
Actually, one of the homes is even priced below $400,000. The homes are all in the Lualai Subdivison, an area that is one of Waimea’s most central locations for shopping and access to the many activities Waimea has to offer.
This REO listing (MLS# 270695) has granite counters, fenced backyard, and new carpet and paint
Is it a Good Time to Buy?
This is a great time to buy a resale home in the Lualai Subdivison as the developer is wrapping up the final homes being built in this phase. Why is this a good time to buy? When resale homes are competing with brand new homes, owners will usually have to discount their asking price to lure buyers away from the new construction. So, usually once the developer sales are done, owners of resale homes can raise their asking prices.
Here are the four homes under $450,000 in Lualai:
All four homes had many similarities – all were 4 bedroom homes with about 1,360 interior space built in 2004 to 2006 on smaller lots – either 5,000 or 7,500 sq.ft. The plan for these homes has the master bedroom downstairs with 3 bedrooms and a bath upstairs. The downstairs is an open plan for the kitchen and living room – complete with a fireplace for cooler Waimea nights.
All four homes have mature landscaping and this home (MLS# 262820) has a fenced yard
Each home has its own personality with individual owner upgrades – some have wood or laminate flooring, some have carpet throughout, and several have fenced yards. One of the big advantages is they all have mature landscaping that has been growing for several years and offers some privacy and enhanced curb appeal.
Opportunity Knocks for Buyers
The listing agents for these homes told me they have been getting quite a few showings. When you consider that the average sales price in 2013 for Dry Side Waimea homes was $529,678, it’s not surprising that close-to-new homes with a great location would appeal to many buyers – families, second homes, or as an investment property. So, if you are considering buying a home in Waimea, I’d suggest you include these dry side Waimea homes that are all priced under $450,000.
I love the Big Island. Aloha.
