Kona Palisades Estates
Kona Palisades Estates is located on the western slopes of Hawaii's third largest volcano, Mt. Hualalai, and no, it's not active (FYI)...Kona Palisades Estates is comprised of 733 homes and built in habitats ranging from desert landscapes in less than 100 ft. in elevation to lush tropical gardens at 1,700 feet in elevation.
So, I was out showing property to some really nice people and stumbled into to a listing that I had not seen before (MLS# 248126). Really, I should have seen this listing before, but I thought is was overpriced at the time. When I showed it, I was amazed at the quiet, peaceful, and fun place that it was...and the best part is the property just had a price drop of $20,000.
The kitchen is the older style kitchen, but let me tell you, this would be a fun entertaining home! This picture doesn't do justice to the kitchen, it has wide open, big window views of the ocean, living room, and pool.
There is a counter with a bar that has a separate ice maker and wet bar sink great for entertaining. The center island is great and wide open. The kitchen has tons of cabinets, and if you are like me, I have way too much cooking utensils because I love gadgets and cooking, so this kitchen is built perfect for someone like that.
The rooms are very open as well. This home is now vacant, and when you walk in, the openness gives you such an "ahhh" feeling. So many ideas were going through my mind...This home was so clean and spick-and-span, you could eat off the floor. This home has a lot of upgrades like central AC, lush landscaping, a great laundry room, the list goes on!
I really think this is a great buy and it is in my favorite place, Kona Palisades Estates...
The Kona Real Estate Market
Inventory in Kona is getting very tight, believe it or not, and I don't have my crystal ball, but there are a lot of positive changes happening with the Kona market; less market time, multiple offers, over bidding, etc. Kona Palisades Estates has been through a lot of distressed properties these last few years and when you see a buy like this (MLS# 248126), you say to yourself, "WOW, that's a good buy! It's time to make a move in the market."
Aloha for now! See ya next time! Michele Mckinley
