Oahu

Oahu’s Population is up to 8.8% According to U.S. Census

Oahu’s population grew from 876,156 to 953,207 residents according to the latest census.

Ewa Beach’s neighborhood of Ewa Gentry had the largest population boom on Oahu

According to a recent Star Advertiser article, Hawaii’s population is up to 1.4 million. The neighbor islands had larger percentage increases with Kauai up 14.8%, Maui up 20.9%, and the Big Island up a whopping 24.5% since the last census of 2000.

The Ewa Gentry area of Ewa Beach had the largest growth increase at 359.4%! This is a perfect example of why our prices in Hawaii are higher than the national average. There are more people coming than leaving. Supply vs. demand. Plain and simple…

Contact one of our great Hawaii Life agents throughout the islands if you’re looking to take advantage of lower prices before the next population boom.

This story makes a pitch to buy real estate “before the next population boom.”

You mean before the next influx of well-monied retirees?

Population booms mean babies, and that is definitely NOT what causes the population to increase in Hawaii.
