Being in real estate for close to 29 years, I know what Oahu buyers like and yes, trends do change! I remember when I first started selling real estate back in the ’90s buyers, didn’t care if a home was a move-in condition home, but now it’s often a must. With both husband and wife working full-time and the hefty cost of construction in Hawaii, a renovated home is the best way to sell a home.
Perfect Use of Outdoor Space
What I particularly like about this home is its use of outdoor space and privacy. In Hawai’i, we have great weather year-round, so having a backyard with three areas to entertain on makes this home unique and perfect for the party host.Front of the home with two-car garage and multiple open parking spaces with room for a boat.
As for indoors, this home has attention to detail. The owner’s boss, Mr. Schuler, a former Hawai’i developer, told the sellers, “Every detail is a must,” which is true because one rusty fixture can either make or break a buyer’s decision to purchase or not. On the inside, the seller’s covered the open beamed ceilings, and they added recessed lighting to add softness. They also added five split air conditioners to keep the home cool but added seventeen solar panels to help keep their electric bill low on humid days. Here’s a link to see a tour of the inside.
