Apartment Living in Hawaii

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 1 2

Are you considering a move to Hawaii? If so, there are many reasons it's an excellent idea. We'll go over many of them in detail. There are also some things you should know prior to making any arrangements. This information could end up saving you a lot of time, stress, and money. We'll go over everything from Hawaii Real Estate to entertainment to weather. By the end of this article, you should know more about Hawaii than ever before. Since weather is such an important factor for so many, let's start with that.

San Diego might have a reputation for exceptional weather, but little do people know that Hawaii's weather is much better. The average annual temperature for Hawaii is 77 degrees. Tough to beat. As far as extreme temperatures go, they don't exist. For example, the highest recorded temperature ever recorder in Hawaii is 94 degrees. The lowest temperature in Hawaii ever recorded is 52 degrees. This is not only pleasant in regards to all the activities that are available year-round, but you will only need one wardrobe. There will be no need to purchase winter and summer clothes.

Being that weather can be a big selling point on its own, we'll get right to prices for Hawaii Real Estate. The average price for a home in Honolulu is around $350,000. It is possible to find an unfurnished, three bedroom home for around $260,000. If you're looking into apartment living in Hawaii, then you will be able to save a good deal of money. While apartments – and homes for that matter – are smaller than those on the mainland, you can live in paradise for relatively cheap. For example, if you look hard enough, you should be able to find a studio apartment for around $700 per month. If you'd prefer a furnished, one bedroom apartment, you might be able to find one for as low as $800 per month. If you're looking for a mobile home or trailer, you won't have any luck. They don't exist in Hawaii.

If you'd like to find out more about living in Hawaii, you should definitely plan at least one trip to find out more about your target location, which is exactly what Aloha Tony did so many years ago when he first decided to move to the Aloha state. To find out where to stay during your visit, consider using the Hawaii Hotel Guide, which can be found through the Hawaii Visitor's Bureau. If you're not sure which island to start at, perhaps population numbers can help you. Oahu is the most populated island, with over 1 million people. The big island has over 200,000 people. Over 125,000 people call Maui home. And Kauai is the most laid back island, with less than 70,000 people. Keep in mind that the higher populated areas will also be easier locations for mainlanders to fit in. This is especially the case if you're going to be looking for employment. Otherwise, the majority of the jobs will go to locals. If you're a professional, many of them require state licensure, but if you're knowledgeable in your area, you should find the tests easy. To find out more about employment in Hawaii, contact the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs.

If education is something that still pertains to you and your family, there are public and private schools on every island, as well as universities. To find out more detailed information, you can contact the Department of Education. If religion is important to you, that shouldn't be a concern. All religions are present and practiced in Hawaii. Many national and local banks are also available. There are two major newspapers, which are The Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu-Star Bulletin. The former is delivered in the morning and the latter at night. And when it comes to food in Hawaii, most of it is ono. Ono means delicious in Hawaii. Hawaiian Regional and Pacific Rim foods are the most popular. If you look into Hawaii Real Estate and find a cheap apartment to live in, you won't only have more money for delicious food, but also for fun daily activities and nightly entertainment.

Daytime activities are extremely popular in Hawaii. Anyone who lives in Hawaii loves the outdoors. There are surfers, golfers, hikers, joggers, tennis players, water skiers, kayakers, windsurfers, scuba divers, and the list goes on and on. If you enjoy doing something outdoors, you're sure to find it in Hawaii. As far as nightlife goes, the biggest action spot is in Waikiki. You can find nightclubs, cocktail shows, dinner cruises, bars, and more. There are also concerts at the Waikiki Shell.

As you can probably tell by now, there's no shortage of things to do in Hawaii. Of all the places to live in the United States, it's by far the closest thing to paradise. Who wouldn't want warm weather, beautiful scenery everywhere they go, and tons of activity options? Whether you're looking for a home or an apartment, a quick search on Hawaii Real Estate could end up with you purchasing your dream home in an ideal location. Good luck.

Very interesting! I thought the price of an apartment in Hawaii would be very expensive, but the prices you listed don't seem too bad.
