Things To Know For Military Moving To Honolulu

If you are in the military and your Permanent Change of Station (PCS) is one of Oahu's seven active military bases, here are some of what you should expect when moving here.

A large house lot is 10,000 square feet (1/4 acre) and in most of the "affordable" neighborhoods a normal lot is 5,000 square feet of land. An average home (in the median price range) is 1,300-1,500 square feet. Larger homes are 2,000 to 2,500 square feet.

Except for new construction, most homes do not have central air conditioning. Older homes may have window mounted and split air conditioners.

Also, housing in Honolulu, compared to most of the mainland, is very expensive. Expect everything (food, entertainment, gas, etc) to be very expensive as well, compared to most of the mainland. The closer you get to Waikiki; the more you should expect to pay for a home.

Don't compare the distance from you work location to home in the same manner as you do in other parts of the world. On a map, a neighborhood may look close to Pearl Harbor or Kaneohe Bay Marine Air Station, yet a distance of 17 miles that should take less than 30 minutes could end taking an hour to an hour and a half due to traffic and/or construction.
