    Re: Harbor Pointe Condo Community

    Welcome back Tina. Wow, you went to HI just for a few days to Condo shop. Sorry you were not able to find something. I would think you will need at least a week. Hope you had some time to enjoy the Island.

    Yes, I do plan on buying. I plan on going for at least two weeks because I have to definately come back with a contract in hand.

    Do you mind sharing what you did find out from your visit with me? You can email me directly from my profile with your email or phone # and I can contact you.

    Thanks for the offer, I have a friend over there that's a realtor that is working with me.

    I am preparing my current house for sale right now and hope to have it on the market next week or so. The sooner it's sold the sooner I can be in HI.

    Thanks

    Queenolu,

    Ah, then I'm only a few months ahead of you. I'm hoping to buy, since the rents are high and seem close to what you could be paying for a mortgage. Actually just got back to the DC area (NoVA) about an hour ago after looking at maybe 2 dozen places over the weekend. If you are considering buying, I am working with a realtor that I would recommend. Given the limited nature of my visit, he did a great job of getting me into as many showings as possible in different areas. I didn't find a place, but I now have a much better idea of what to expect and what areas I would like to focus on going forward. If you are interested in his contact info, let me know

    Best of luck in your move!
    --Tina

    Welcome to the board.

    I too will be moving from the DC/MD area at the end of the year to Oahu. Good luck with your moving.

    Are you buying or renting.

    I should be doing my condo hunting around November timeframe.

    Aloha

    Re: Harbor Pointe Condo Community

    Thank you both for your advice and thoughts. It helps quite a bit to get some insider perspectives, as I'm sure that you can appreciate that it is a little difficult to make housing decisions when you don't know much about the areas that you are comparing. If anything else occurs to you about the area or if any others out there have some information on this condo community and/or the neighborhood, please let me know. Thanks!

Thanks!
    About 3 years ago I remember checking out a rental at Harbor Pointe. It's right next to an old drivein theatre which now is called the Kam Swap Meet. The place that we looked at was nice and seemed to have a lot of storage space. The grounds looked well kept at the time. I have no idea what crime is like in that area. The mall is definitely within walking distance as is The Bus stop (if you want to don't drive everywhere). Hope this helps you some.

    Ah. Thank you, Google Maps. Ok, it's right behind St. MichaelTimothy's Episcopal Church on Moanalua Rd., across from Pearl Ridge Elementary School.

    Well, shopping would be a snap. There's a humongous shopping center called Pearlridge about two blocks east on Moanalua, with Macys and Sears as anchor tenants, a movie complex with a few screens, a Longs Drugs, and a boatload of other stores. There's a Safeway, Office Depot, Bank of Hawai'i branch, City Mill hardware, liquor store etc. in Waimalu Shopping Center about half-a-mile west on Moanalua.

    I live straight up the hill (in fact, my sister was married in that church), so I shop at both these places all the time. My nieces went to that school.

    I don't know about those condos specifically, but the neighborhood is relatively quiet. There is a hospital on Moanalua and Pali Momi Street about a mile east of the condos, so there's ambulance noise to think of, although those units are pretty far off the main drag.

    There's easy freeway access in both directions from there as well.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, if you've got kids or a working spouse, that's a horse of a different color as far as me helping; I've got neither.

    DC to Honolulu? My parents did that 35 years ago.

    Thanks for the response. I appreciate the feedback of those who actually live in the Aiea area. It is not too far from a Home Depot and the only other landmark that I can remember is that there is a church right next to the entrance to the condo community, which is sort of tucked behind the church. As for an address I have 98943 Moanalua Rd. Hopefully this will help ...

    Um. Which ones are Harbor Pointe? There doesn't appear to be a website, unfortunately (I tried that first). Color, landmarks they're near, street address on Moanalua...

    I live in Aiea (at least the P.O. thinks so), and I don't recognize that name at all.
