Have you recently been thinking about moving to Hawaii? Maybe now so more than ever — with the ability to work remotely, more people are reconsidering where they’d like to do that.
Things to Consider When Moving to Hawaii
Which island is the best island for you and your family?
Each island is very different — from Honolulu, Oahu, home to the biggest outdoor shopping mall in the world, to some of the most rural areas on the Big Island, Hawaii.
What city/neighborhood is the best for you and your family?
As every island is very different — each city or neighborhood is also different. It’s important to know what area is the best fit for you and your family. For example, maybe you love the water — Hawaii Kai‘s marina front properties may be the place for you!
What is the cost of living really like in Hawaii?
Be prepared. It is not cheap to live in paradise. On Oahu, we recently hit record high sales for single-family homes at a median price of $880,000.
Will I be able to find a job?
Get in touch with a local job recruiter. They can help find the right job for you especially if you’re already experienced in a specific field.
Talk to Your Local Expert
These are all great things to consider. Those who I have helped successfully make the move to Oahu took the time to plan and research. Talk to the locals and transplants — listen to their experiences and stories. Living in Hawaii is different from vacationing in Hawaii, so it may not be for everyone. But, those who come with the aloha spirit instilled rarely ever leave.
