Are you tired of sinking your money into renting a place?  Do you want a space you can renovate?  Well, it may be time for you to purchase a condo.

Why a condo instead of a house?  Depending on your lifestyle there are quite a few advantages to owning a condo over a house.

1.  No Yard Work – When you live in a condo community you get the benefit of living in lovely surroundings without the work.  Look out on manicured gardens and lawns without having to mow the lawn or weed the garden and you’ll never have to clean the pool or repair the front gate.

2.  Security – In a condo community you have the added security of a front gate and sometimes a security guard.  Also you’ll have neighbors who will notify the police if they see someone they don’t usually see in the complex.

3.  Amenities – Condo communities (especially ones on resorts) come with lots of amenities such as fitness centers, tennis courts, swimming pools, barbeque and social pavilions, private restaurant and golf club access, and more

4.   Price – Condos are generally less expensive than a house.  Instead of paying the monthly rent on an apartment you can pay a monthly mortgage of the same cost and stay in a condo of the same size.

At the moment we have several condos for sale.  Each is only a stone’s throw from the ocean.  Mauna Lani Terrace D101 in South Kohala is a 2 bedroom / 2.5 bath unit in beautiful Mauna Lani Resort.  This recently renovated condo has tile floors throughout, faux grass cloth wall treatments, marble counter tops, new lighting fixtures, and is fully furnished.  Sit out on the terrace overlooking the pond and watch the sunset over the ocean.

Down the coast in North Kona we have an ocean front, ground floor unit at Kanaloa at Kona 2001.  This 2 bedroom/ 2 bath condo comes with a stream-lined kitchen featuring Koa cabinets and an amazing view of the Pacific.  The spacious lanai includes a wet bar and is the perfect place to watch the Humpback whales when they migrate to the islands in the winter.  Take a stroll down the street and you’ll find Kona’s historical Keauhou and He’eia Bay.

Not far away at Kona By The Sea 423 we have a 4 bedroom / 3.5 bath penthouse.  It was renovated in 2012 and now has granite counter tops, custom cabinets, and wood laminate flooring.  Watch the ocean crash against the beach from your private lanai or any of the spacious rooms.  Includes pool, hot tub, and all the privacy you’d ever want.

So, what are you waiting for?  Now is a perfect time to invest in a condo.
