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?
This Ocean Pointe single family home in Ewa Beach, Oahu is simply ideal – ideal for a small family, pets, and above all, for a homebuyer who is looking for a property that offers the relaxation and ease of moving in and not having to upgrade a thing (because it has already been done). It is evident from the way this Kaimalie Street single family home photographs that it has been immaculately kept and treated with the utmost care by its original owners. A home like this shoots to the top anyone’s Hawaii house hunting list.
Central AC, new porcelain tile on the ground floor, and a beautifully landscaped yard provides the “Welcome Home” kind of atmosphere that members of our Hawaii military community look forward to after long hours of work, training, and deployments. The Ewa Beach community is a convenient location for the driving commute to multiple military bases around Honolulu and Central Oahu. Let’s take a look at how this particular home corresponds to the Honolulu County BAH rates for military members with dependents.
