Real Estate

One benefit of purchasing a model home, whether brand new or a resale, is the upgrades that are typically included in models.

My recently-listed 91-1026 Kaiko Drive listing in Ewa Beach's Ocean Pointe subdivision is a former model home (built in 2004). The upgrades in this former model home are impressive and alluring for home buyers. 

#1 Upgraded flooring - Laminate Composite

Dining room to kitchen MLS

This floor has the look of real wood and a sturdier feel than typical laminate. 

#2 Enhanced Backsplash

Kitchen 1 MLS

Particularly for people who are frequent entertainers or who enjoy cooking, an enhanced and aesthetically-pleasing kitchen provides added value and visual appeal. 

#3 Built-in Cabinetry

Living room 1 MLS

Top of stairs MLS

Both the downstairs living area and the upstairs loft/den feature built in cabinetry, great for storage and for providing visual contrast to a room. 

#4 Plantation Shutters

Living room 3 MLS

Plantation shutters lend an elegance and a breezy island feel to any property. Most people who visit this home compliment this beautiful yet practical home feature. 

#5 Upgraded Tub in Master

The master bath features a deeper style tub and a tile finish.

#6 Tiled Backyard Lanai

The tiled backyard lanai provides a lovely backdrop for your pau hana cocktails and pupus!!!
