Sixth Home Release

Makamae is now on its sixth home release. There were 4 homes released in November 2021. There were two plan 1s, one plan 3 and one plan 4 released. The first plan 1 sold for $937,000 with a lot size of 5,436 sqft. The second plan 1 sold for $948,440 with a lot size of 6,514 sqft. This one sold for more due to a bigger lot premium. The plan 3 sold for $952,600 with a lot size of 4,316 sqft. The plan 4 sold for $973,400 with a lot size of 4,316 sqft.

The 7th home release at Makamae won’t happen until after the new year.

Waiting List

Now let’s talk about the waiting list. In order to purchase a home at Makamae, these homes are by waiting list only. There will be no lotteries for Makamae.

As of November 2021, the waiting list is around 270 or so. What this means is, if your name was added to the waiting list now, it’ll take about 2 1/2 years or more to be possibly offered a home.

Makamae is a 3-year project and they’re on sales release #6 and have released 28 homes. Makamae will have a total of 150 homes so they’re still really early in the sales process.

There still is a chance if you are interested in Makamae. A lot of people on the waiting list will not purchase a home. Some reasons may be they’ve already purchased a home, they no longer qualify, they moved off the island, they’re no longer looking to purchase a home, they don’t want that specific floorplan, they lost their job, etc. So don’t give up hope. Anything can happen from now to when they call your name on the waiting list.

How to Get on the Waiting List?

How do you get on the waiting list or see the model homes? To get on the waiting list or to visit the model homes at Makamae, Gentry has a process in place. You cannot walk up to the sales office and expect to see the model homes. They will literally turn you away at the door. Contact me or click on the link below and we would be happy to walk you through the process and help answer any questions that you have.


If you’re interested in similar homes like Makamae, I’m being told Gentry will be building another single-family home development in the future in Kapolei behind Costco. The new community is a part of a master-planned development in Kalaeloa. If you want to be added to the interest list and be the first to know new information about this project, click here.
