When a military family finds out they’re being relocated to Oahu Hawaii, it can feel like the whole world is turned upside down. Questions begin to circle in one’s mind like:
It’s quite likely you’ve done this before, and chances are you’ll have to do it again. To put your mind at ease, I’ve put together some of the most frequently asked questions that homebuyers face when their family is being relocated to another city.
Ultimately, it depends on how long you’ll be stationed in Oahu Hawaii, and if you can live on or off the base.
If you expect to be here for a few years, it can certainly be a good financial choice to buy a home. Rental prices on Oahu Hawaii are at an all-time high, so a mortgage payment can actually be quite a bit LOWER than the average monthly rent and you’ll be building equity in the process. Find out what your housing allowance is and if you’re approved for a VA loan with Veteran's Mortgage source and a Military Home Search buyer specialist will help you determine what you can afford and what neighborhoods would work best for your situation.
Before you make your decision, check with the base’s housing list to see if there are any delays. Rank and availability can sometimes cause base housing waitlists to accumulate, which means it could be several months before your family can move in.
It’s difficult to put a definitive number on the amount of days it takes to buy a home because every situation is different. With that said, you can typically view around three to five properties over the span of a few days, bearing in mind that these homes have been carefully chosen by me, your agent and my team based on your wants and needs.
One of the biggest things that can save time during the buying process is to be pre-approved for a mortgage before you go shopping for a home. This ensures that if you find a property that matches your needs and budget, you can put in an offer as soon as possible. Far too often, a buyer misses their dream home because they’re not pre-approved and another buyer is.
While touring a home in person is always going to be the best option, some buyers don’t have the time or money to fly back and forth across the country to house hunt.
Buying a home sight-unseen isn’t ideal, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. I have become quite adept at FaceTime Whats App and Zoom to get you a great "feel" for the properties and neighborhoods.

The native (indigenous) people of Polynesia are the most loving and unique of people I have encountered in my vast travels and living all over the United States. May I suggest while here, take the time to get to know the history and understand with what they specifically the people of Hawaii, have faced. I have many recommendations for education opportunities. The Bishop Museum, Polynesian Cultural Center, The Iolani Palace and the Queen's Summer Palace are all great sources of the rich and controversial history.
