Priced to sell in Pearlridge

Are you a University of Hawaii football fanatic? This two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in Pearlridge is less than a 10-minute drive to Aloha Stadium making it easy to don your Warrior garb and head over to a game.

The 778-square-foot unit could use a facelift, but is clean and very well-kept. Each of the bedrooms has its own A/C wall unit. The stacked washer and dryer are tucked into a hall closet freeing up space that's often taken up in a bathroom or the kitchen.

“It’s a great investment property, good for a rental income,” says realtor Michelle Takushi of Prudential Locations, Mililani. Plus you can’t beat the price, at just $214,000 fee simple, it is well below comparable units in the building.

Though it’s across the street from Pearlridge Center, you can’t hear the street traffic. The only thing you might hear are kids splashing in the property’s pool on a lazy weekend day. Since it’s on the third floor and faces the tree tops, you won’t see the neighbors either.

One thing I'd have to keep in check would be my daily temptation to grab a quick burger at Big City Diner or takeout food at one of the many restaurants at the shopping center rather than utilizing the large kitchen to save money and make meals at home.

Also, if it’s up your alley, Aiea Bowl is only a three-minute drive away and ladies bowl free on Thursdays.

The monthly maintenance fee is $478, and includes cable TV, sewer, water and other common expenses.

Fuzz factor: Sorry, no pets are allowed.

One covered parking stall is included in the price.

If you’re interested, Takushi tells me it’s easy to show with a just few hours notice, or you can keep an eye out for an upcoming open house. Click here for details.
