If you are young and want to own a home in Hawaii someday, I’m hoping that this video can encourage you that it’s still possible to buy a home in Hawaii. It’s not easy and it seems like each month it’s getting harder and harder to do that. In Hawaii, the median prices for single-family homes and condos for July 2020 were $815,000 and $440,000, respectively. And while it’s easy to just sit back and complain about how there isn’t enough housing and housing prices are too high, both of which are true, I thought it would be good to hear a story from someone who was able to do it.
The things I’m going to share obviously can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to buy a home in Hawaii because there are just too many external factors, like availability and financing, but the things I’m going to talk about are the things that helped to put me in a good position to buy a home when an opportunity came along. And hopefully these things encourage, motivate, and inspire you if you want to one day own a home.
