Aloha, military service members! Here at Hawaii VA Loans, one of our goals is to be your go-to, trustworthy resource for information on home buying and the VA loan process. In order for us to achieve that, we think it is important to break it down for you. Not in dance moves, but in data, BAH style. We’ll leave the break dancing to you – for after you sign those closing papers.

What can your BAH buy?

When you think about the easy, relaxed style of Hawaii living, this peaceful home in the established residential neighborhood of Pacific Palisades, nestled in the mountains above Pearl City, evokes that way of life perfectly. Its open living space, tranquil family room, and updated, modern kitchen make this home move-in-ready, and ready to be enjoyed. The Pacific Palisades neighborhood is centrally located between downtown Honolulu and the city of Kapolei, and is a convenient distance to a variety of Oahu’s military bases.

In addition to the living space, this Palisades home has three bedrooms with beautiful, traditional open beam ceilings. A multi-use room with a separate entrance and closet can be used as a fourth bedroom for guests or family.

Last but certainly not least, the large yard space with its fruit and flower trees offers plenty of opportunity to create your personal, outdoor living area.
