Here's the excerpt from Sales Office of Allure Waikiki (ground breaking January 2008):
"... 35-story upscale community with 1, 2 & 3 bedroom residences featuring gourmet kitchens with all Viking appliances, master suites, generous walk-in closets, floor to ceiling windows & much more. A grand lanai with 18' ceilings & a lush park will be major focal points in Allure Waikiki along with a spacious recreation terrace with pool & spa and 24 hr security access..."
909 Kapiolani completed late August still has remaining inventory from the developer, as well as 10+ resale units on MLS. Keola La'i in Kakaako, Watermark in Waikiki, Capitol Place and Pinnacle in Downtown... The success is depend on the timeline against this uncertain market into 2008.
Market analysis is everywhere, but one thing to keep it mind: Real estate is Local.
Just as national weather forecast has nothing to do with our local weather, we have to keep our eyes to specific local market to learn where it goes...
