Four Homes in East Honolulu Under $1 Mil

If you’ve been tracking Oahu real estate, you know that our median sales price as of January 2022 is $1,050,000. Wow! It’s hard enough to grapple with a median sales price over $1 mil,  but you may find it even harder to wrap your brains around the median sales prices for some East Honolulu neighborhoods. For example, the median sales price for Hawaii Kai is $1.395 mil and for the Waialae to Kahala region, it is an astounding $$2,115,000! So, are there any single-family homes in East Honolulu for under $1 mil?

For Sale in Hawaii Kai

You may be surprised to find out that the answer is yes. If you are looking for a home in Hawaii Kai, you might want to take a look at this cute split-level home at 959 Honokahua Place listed at $875,000 (MLS #202200326). It is a three bedroom, two bath attached home with 1,356 interior square feet of living area. It’s on a quiet cul-de-sac and not far from world-famous Sandy Beach. If you want to break into the single-family market, this might be a good opportunity for you to do so. It’s cheaper than a lot of condos and townhomes in the neighborhood and there are no maintenance fees! It comes with a two car garage, too.

Fixer-Upper in Waialae Nui

If fixer-uppers are your thing, take a look at 1339 Makaikoa Street in Waialae Nui listed at $995,000 (MLS #202203773). It’s a smaller three bedroom, one bath home and you may need to bring your architect and contractor, but the neighborhood is highly desirable due to its convenient location. If you are someone who recognizes potential, this home is worth viewing. You can’t go wrong owning real estate in Waialae Nui, one of Oahu’s most highly sought-after ridge communities.

Vintage Charm in Kaimuki

Do you like vintage homes? Check out 702 10th Avenue (MLS #202203471) and  1017 14th Avenue (MLS #202202438), priced respectively at $999,000 and $978,888. If you want charm, 702 10th Avenue has it, but be ready to put in some work. If you do, you’ll have a sweet house in a very sweet spot — Kaimuki! What I particularly like about this home is the location — you can see the slopes of Diamond Head from the front yard. Kaimuki is also home to 1017 14th Avenue. The house needs a lot of repair, but it’s got a great vibe reminiscent of old Hawaii. You’ll love the built-in cabinetry and wood floors. And, if you are looking to live in an eclectic community, it’s hard to beat living in Kaimuki.

East Honolulu Lifestyle

The neighborhoods in East Honolulu are some of the best on Oahu. Perhaps that is because the weather is wonderful, the beaches are beautiful, the views are amazing, and the proximity to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and iconic Waikiki are unsurpassed. So, if you want to enjoy one of the best lifestyles the island has to offer, consider purchasing a home on the east side. You may not get everything you want in a home, but you may get everything you want in a lifestyle.
