It’s no secret that homes and condominiums in Honolulu and Waikiki or especially those in the highest touristy areas of Oahu would be the most expensive. The same can be true for those around the outer edge of the island with waterfront views and oceanfront access. However, in the center of the island lights several smaller towns such as Mililani close to the Schofield Barracks and the Wheeler Army Airfield that are a little more affordable.
Mililani sits just inside between the valleys accessible on Highway H2. There are numerous homes for sale priced anywhere from $300,000-$900,000, quite different than the million dollar waterfront properties in Ewa Beach, Honolulu and the North Shore. The average home price for a home in this area is about $600,000. There are primarily single-family homes, one and two story designs built between the 1970s and 2000.
At the publishing of this post there about 100 homes for sale priced from $155,000 for a small studio single-family home up to about $1.1 million. The median house price is about $700,000 with a variety of homes mainly between $400,000 and $800,000. In this price range you can find the majority of homes with 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2 to 3 bathrooms in sizes from 1500 ft.² to about 3000 ft.².
A little farther up Highway H2 is a small community of Whitmore Village and Wahiawa. homes in this area are priced even less starting about $250,000-$650,000. Whitmore Village has anywhere from 5 to 10 homes for sale found along the Kamehameha Hwy priced from $400,000-$550,000.
Both of these locations have a variety of amenities such as markets, thanks, shops and restaurants and the Leilehua golf course is also located between Mililani and Wahiawa. There’s a variety of parks, great schools and of course easy access to the north or south side of the island. Several military families choose to buy in this area and the Wahiawa community has more duplexes and town homes for sale then Mililani.
It’s true that if you want to live out by the water or in some of the major metropolitan cities of Honolulu and Waikiki, prices will generally be higher but you also have the traffic, hustle and bustle and tourists at these locations. Finding a centrally located home on Oahu means to have a little bit more privacy and of course a lower-priced home.
