An affordable condo in Temple Valley

With the real estate market so tight on Oahu, it’s difficult to find a reasonably priced home that doesn’t need a lot of TLC before you move in. Those in good condition will often be snapped up before you can blink.

Located in the Temple Valley neighborhood of Kaneohe, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit at Kahaluu Gardens is affordable, at $259,000 (fee simple). In addition, the maintenance fee, which includes sewer and water, is low, at $235 a month.

Just listed last week, the second-floor condo has a fresh coat of paint throughout, new laminate flooring and new carpeting.

New countertops were also installed in the kitchen, which features a pass-through counter to give the living space a more open feel. An in-unit stacked washer/dryer is also located in the kitchen.

Since it’s a corner unit, it’ll afford you a little extra privacy from the neighbors, plus the living room boasts extra windows to bring in lots of light. For a virtual tour, click here.

It may not be the expansive beachfront house you’ve dreamed about since you were little, but it’s a terrific option for a first-time buyer or a military couple looking for a place to call home.

Kahaluu Gardens has few amenities but, if firing up the barbie appeals, there’s a barbecue area where you can set up small charcoal grill and get your pulehu on.

One parking stall is included in the price. Click here for details.
