Allure Waikiki Condos - Renovations?
Although this new condo building, Allure Waikiki, located in west Waikiki was just completed a little over a year ago, after buying bought out by a private equity group, I've been reading "rumors" concerning planned renovations.
I say "rumored" because I have not been able to verify it through the Allure website or sales office, but have read news reports about it online.
Evidently, not only is the luxury Waikiki condo building, Allure Waikiki, going through some price restructuring, but may be planning a reported $3 million in renovations to help move the remaining 100 or more unsold … (0 comments)

Honolulu Luxury Condos - What's the Luxury Home Story of 2011?
In a recent blog, "Luxury Insights", writer Laurie Moore answered a question about what was the luxury home story of the year.  Here is what she had to say:

honolulu luxury condos for sale: International Buyers in Hawaii - 04/01/11 02:32 PM
International Buyers in Hawaii
Hawaii purchases by international buyers will be important in 2011.  The growth in wealth around the world will help fuel demand for foreign buyers to purchase in Hawaii and the U.S. in general. The U.S. is still viewed as a safe haven for investment.  
Visa challenges and other governmental issues may moderate international demand, but the potential is strong.  
The U.S. second home market will benefit from this.  Some foreign second home markets are still overbuilt (Dubai) or dealing with ownership issues (Spain).  Economic problems in Europe and the resulting austerity problems will dampen recovery in 2011.
