Just because there’s a big price drop, doesn’t mean that’s automatically a great value.  In my opinion, some of these do offer good opportunities.  But as a case in point, check out my new listing (MLS 228054) this week and compare it to #5:

Aliomanu Bay

  • Almost identical price – $1,297,000
  • Near Aliomanu Estates
  • Whitewater Ocean Views through the home
  • Gorgeous Mountain Views
  • 2+ acre lot
  • Almost double the living area
  • Built in 2007
  • All Photos
  • Virtual Tour

What’s my point?  Well, although watching price drops is a good way to find opportunities. It’s critical to work with a dedicated buyers agent who can provide you market analysis to see where the “values” are.  Does the price drop mean the seller is chasing the market down? Or is it really a deal now?
