We've had some great weather this week thus far for the 2018 Sony Open here on Oahu. Last year, a course record was set by Justin Thomas as there was little to know winds. This year seems no different in that our local trade winds that came make playing there quite challenging are almost non-existent again this year.
Homes for Sale on Waialae Golf Course
Like every year, I write an article featuring the homes for sale along the golf course. This year there are only 4 listings spread throughout 3 MLS neighborhoods which are Kahala, Kai Nani and Waialae Golf Course. Here they are in sequential order by price:
1. 4817 Kaimoku Way (MLS # 201723195) in Kai Nani is listed for $3,999,000
This one was listed for sale last year for $4,195,000, so the Seller appears a little more motivated. It's also the lowest priced listing available fronting Waialae Golf Course. The entry level pricing was lower last year, however the lower priced homes either backed up to Kalanianaole Hwy or needed more work. This one is definitely a beauty!
2. 959 Waiholo St. (MLS # 201722957) in Waialae Golf Course is listed for $4,750,000
This one sits on the 11th fairway and was completely remodeled after last selling near the bottom of the market in 2010 for $2,300,000 and features solar PV panels among many other bells and whistles.
3. 951 Waiholo St. (MLS # 201800519) in Waialae Golf Course is listed for $5,500,000
Right next door, you'll find 951 Waiholo - also on the 11th Fairway. This one was also on the market last year, however the Seller is also more motivated coming back on the market this week $400k off their $5,900,000 price then.
4. 949 Kealaolu Ave. (MLS # 201712232) in Kahala is also listed for $5,500,000
This is the only listing in Kahala, where you don't have get on Kalanianaole Hwy for access. Although it's a great facing view of the course, there's technically a drainage canal between the home and the golf course that provides a buffer. It's a great home built by Tom Nicholson overlooking the 18th fairway and the owner won't be making much of a profit as they paid $5.2 million 10 years ago in 2008...
