High housing costs for both real estate and rental housing are the number one expenses in Hawaii right now. We discuss the numbers and how other lifestyle items such as food, taxes, electricity, car insurance and more stack up against other islands and the mainland. (Real figures for April 2021)
We checked CraigsList for rental costs, the Hawaii Island Multiple Listing Service for real estate stats, Safeway/Kroger in the Pacific Northwest, San Diego and Kona for food prices, and research on property taxes with the County of Hawaii to share with you the real cost of living in Hawaii.
