Happy New Year!
A New Year is always a good time to “start a fresh”, re-invent yourself, begin again…
The calendar year represents a new cycle for many things, why not jump on that wave of change and ride that momentum to your advantage!
I’ve noticed an interesting trend over the past few months, with some of my guests. There seems to be an increasing number of people asking about the average cost of homes, and land on Hawaii Island. I know that Hawaii has a way of making people feel like their visit is always too short.
I tell them “There are a few factors, but between 200k and a few million.”. Appearing encouraged, some couples begin lightheartedly planning out how they would make their move to the Big Island.
Hawaii Island does not only seem to be an attractive option for international and continental U.S. visitors, but for the residence of the neighboring Islands as well. With real estate prices on Oahu sky-rocketing, the lure of, relatively, inexpensive properties and land being offered on the Island of Hawaii, it most likely continue to be a growing destination.
Although the 2018 Hawaii County census data has not been released yet, the rate of growth in 2017 was 1.1%, braking the 200,000 mark. If the increased talk and curiosity is any indicator, that number is sure to increase in the upcoming years.
Do you need to change your location? How about your job?, Perhaps just your attitude? Whatever it may be, don’t be afraid, and go for it!
