Buying a luxury home is not just about looking for a nice house, it’s also about finding the perfect setting – and there’s no better location than the island paradise of Hawaii. With its beautiful beaches, lush tropical forests, picturesque sunsets, and endless things to do, it’s the ideal getaway. Here are some of the other reasons why you’ll want to invest in a luxury home in Hawaii:
Hawaii is famous for its perpetually sunny weather and bright blue skies. It has an average of 271 days of sunshine all year round. Hawaii has two seasons: summer or kau from May to October and winter or hooilo from November to April. But the temperature changes are typically very minor – summer sees an average temperature of 85°F and winter an average of 78°F.
The island life
Hawaii is home to some of the friendliest, most peace-loving, and respectful people out there. Many Hawaiians live life based on the Aloha Spirit, a way of life that embraces affection, love, peace, compassion, and mercy. This is not really something you’ll find on the mainland.
Filled with diversity, Hawaii is a blend of cultures and histories. This has manifested in its fusion cuisine – which is influenced by everything from traditional food to Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, and Portuguese cuisines.
The many islands
Every Hawaiian island is different, so whether you’re looking for serenity or excitement – or both – you’ll never run out of options here. There are eight main islands that make up the whole of Hawaii and the six inhabited ones are The Big Island, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Lanai, and Molokai. These islands each have their own unique vibe, but they’re all rooted in the same Native Hawaiian values and traditions.
The beautiful outdoors
Hawaii is home to some of the world’s rarest wildlife and plant life, boasting a diverse ecosystem that cannot be found anywhere else. Apart from its famed white sand beaches and clear blue waters, Hawaii is also home to majestic mountain ranges and lush green valleys.
All the Hawaiian Islands offer a wide range of water and land-based activities that let you make the most of this incredibly beautiful setting. From swimming, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving to camping, hiking, and mountain biking, you will always find something to do outdoors in Hawaii.
Incredible real estate opportunities
Hawaii is one of the best places to invest in real estate in the US. While it was not completely immune from the effects of the financial crisis of 2007-2008, it’s worth noting that the median home price here dropped by just 3% in 2008 and 7.9% in 2009. And after 2008, prices have risen steadily every year.
Here’s another reason why you won’t want to wait too long before buying real estate in Hawaii: the state is running out of land, with available space in Metro Honolulu almost completely gone. It’s best to buy a home now before the prices inevitably go up.
