Big Island affordable?
In response to 140804: Hawaii More Expensive--Yes, posted by Chris on Monday, 3 April 2017, at 9:33 p.m.
We also live in Washington State (North Central). Chris, your right, it is a lot cheaper here. Our electric is around $50/month and we are all electric. Our property taxes run around $2400/year for a 1600 sq ft house that is close to water. We have no income tax. It was our dream back 45 years ago to move to the BI. However, many years ago we realized that we just couldn't afford to live there. So we decided to take long vacations there yearly. Now that is in jeopardy. The condo development that we rent in has doubled over the last couple years. Also, car rental prices have gone through the ceiling, even though I watch it closely. We won't even talk about the airline ticket prices. So here is why I'm going through this tirade, We wanted to live there and couldn't afford it, then we wanted to go there for a month or so and now won't pay the prohibitive price for that. We love Kona, but this year we drove to Phoenix.
