It looks like the developer of Nihilani condos is finally getting competative with the resales. In other words, Brookfield is getting real. Case in point: Nihilani 33A, a three bedroom, two and a half bath townhouse style condo listed by Brookfield for $731,500 closed on 12-08 at the unbelievable price of $625,000. Now that's what I call a price discount and is a strong indication of how desperate the developer is to move these remaining units and get down to business with their new Poipu project, PiliMai.
Don't get me wrong. There's nothing wrong with these condos that is causing the developer to "unload" then except for the fact that they got caught like everyone else in the market decline. Here they were building this great complex, increasing the price each release, when the market started to decline. Unfortunately for the developer, for whatever reason, they were very slow to react and were left basically holding the bag on many fine units with no buyers in sight. The current list prices are still a little high compared to some of the resales but this sales price tells the story. Come in and bargain because we're ready. If you've always wanted a nice, new condo filled with upgrades in a premier resort destination now is the time.
One word of advice: do not walk into the site office without an agent otherwise you will become the developer's agent's client and will find yourself in a dual ageny situation. I never advocate dual agency and do so even less in today's market where there is so much room for negotiation, if you only ask. I believe each client should have an agent working for them and ONLY for them. This is a rare chance to buy at great prices and I am glad to see that Brookfield is back in the game. Call if you'd like to see the complex!
