Aloha,We've had another week of spectacular weather just to my liking. Not too hot with bright blue skies.

Sandpiper 216 just came on the market at $399! This is an upstairs interior unit which faces the courtyard and the pool. Although you do get a little bit of pool noise, the on-site management at Sandpiper is excellent and they do an great job of keeping things quiet after hours. This unit was pre...

Real estate agents always talk "price" first and foremost, but sometimes it really is just a matter of timing. Case in point: Puamana 22C listed for $419K went into escrow the other day with only 16 days on the market. The thing about it is, this unit was previously listed from 5/07 to 10/07 duri...

Aloha,I hope you are not somewhere reading this where the weather is undesirable, as I have to report that we have had yet another stellar week. Today the ocean was so invitingly flat (can you tell I am not a surfer?) it looked like a bathtub. It was bright and sunny with high clouds, just enough...

The logic there simply escapes me, unless perhaps the seller feels the market is moving upward and it's time to move up with it. If this is the case, I must say, the upw...
