HAR 2011 Stats by Island
There really is a home for anyone and everyone here on the Big Island. You will find an incredible variety of homes on the Big Island ranging from sub $100,000 homes on an acre in the Puna and Kau districts up to multimillion dolllar oceanfront estates in Kukio on the west coast. There is the same type of variety found in condos, although the vast majority of condos are found on the west side of the island in either Kona, Waikoloa or the resorts.
Oh, and the Big Island also has the most extreme scenery found in Hawaii, with the only actively flowing volcano to the common sight of snow capped mountains. Where else can you ski atop Mauna Kea in the morning, surf in the afternoon and then finish the day by viewing one of our awesome sunsets from your lanai!
I love the Big Island! Aloha.
