Looking for a view home in Mililani? View can mean a few different things to different people. Some people may state their home has a “view” but it’s really just a view out the backyard of their chickens – stated “View of local wildlife”. This is not really the “view” you’re probably looking for.
View? What View?
When I think “view” I think long distance view. The ocean view. Water view. Valley view. Something that I’m not going to see in every home out there. It’s a “special feature” that should add some value to the home. Of course, value is all relative and it really doesn’t matter how much value it adds, only that it adds value to you, the home buyer. Some people may love the view, where others may say it makes them feel crowded or over-exposed.. one or the other.
But when we’re talking view homes in Hawaii, you probably want some tropical look out and not just out the back window into the backyard. While most back yards in Hawaii are still tropical, view evokes a sense of wonder, awe, distance and expanse. You want a view that stretches for miles, whether that’s over the ocean or across the valley into the hills.
The difference in view…points
Because Mililani sits in the center of the island, a water view home will be at a great distance. Any ocean view home in Mililani will be at least 10 miles away so the home will have to be perched high enough to create that ocean view distance. While unusual, it’s not impossible. Homes on the hill just south of the Mililani Golf Course often have far-reaching views of the water, even if it’s just a peek-a-boo one.
The mountain view homes are more likely in Mililani. If you want an oceanfront or beach view homes, places like Honolulu or coastal towns are your best bet. For Mililani, a view home will often mean a tropical landscape or views of the surrounding hills and valleys.
A Golf Course view is also an option in Mililani. There are probably about 10 homes for sale at any given time with a golf course view front. These are usually priced from $600K t0 about $900K.
Real view homes, homes with sensational views, either of the mountains, valleys, golf course, or that rare ocean view home in Mililani, will be a little higher priced. On average you’re likely to spend 2%-10% more on a beautiful view home than a similar property without a view.
Using basic searches on any real estate website is hardly going to get you the results you really want because too many agents and sellers always think that their home has the best view!
