OAHU COUNTY OF HONOLULU
Oahu is the third largest of the main four islands, but it is called "the gathering place" because of its large population, almost 1.0 million people, or about 75% of the entire population of Hawaii. Additionally, 7.3 million visitors came to Hawaii in 2011, with more staying on Oahu than the other three islands combined. The State Capitol is located on Oahu in the large downtown area, as are military bases including Pearl Harbor, Honolulu International Airport, and the thriving Waikiki Beach area.
Oahu has many neighborhoods, each with its own flavor and possibility of home ownership. Nothing is far away from anything on this island. There is a well-designed highway system to bring people from one part of the island to another. However, some areas are more remote and that needs to be taken into consideration when purchasing a home.
Prices vary greatly from neighborhood to neighborhood, especially if you want to purchase a single family home.

Diamond Head at Waikiki Beach
Waikiki has an infinite number and type of condominium developments from the ultra luxurious oceanfront penthouses, to the smaller and older buildings. Views of the ocean, Diamond Head, the mountains and city scapes are what set many of the higher condominiums apart from its lower units in the same building. Some buildings, more usually the higher priced ones, have interior hallways, while others do not. Although close to the ocean, quite a few buildings have their own swimming pool for residents and other amenties. Parking is at a premium in Waikiki, and some buildings have limited or no parking for owners/tenants. These are all considerations that a prospective buyer or seller has to allow for in pricing or making an offer. I can help you with your listing or selling strategy.
