Since the beginning of November 2011, there has been a pick up in sales at the ultra luxurious Hokua. Three of the 6 Buyers have come from Japan, 1 from Hong Kong, one local investor David D. Kim, and it remains to be seen where the recent buyer is from of unit #23D at a sale price of $3.6 mil. Since January 1, 2011 have been relatively strong considering that we are supposed to be still in an economic crisis. But, true to form, Buyers who have cash to spend are somewhat unfazed by the global economy. Most of the foreign buyers have been from Japan all along and a few from Hong Kong. As the currency exchange remains in their favor, the more attractive Hawaii real estate is. The Hokua is the most luxurious buy in a condominium that is out there. The view over Ala Moana Beach Park (a public park) reassures owners that the chance of having their amazing views obstructed is miniscule at best.
