Aloha, service members! Here at your local VA mortgage lender, 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, Hawaii BAH style. We’ll leave the break dancing to you – for after you sign those closing papers.
What Can Your BAH Buy?
When you’re PCSing to Hawaii and desire to buy an island home with your VA home loan benefits, one of the Oahu neighborhoods you’ll likely hear about first is the Ocean Pointe community in Ewa Beach. For good reasons! There’s newer, affordable construction (let’s hear it for central AC!), a convenient commute to multiple military installations, close proximity to beautiful beaches and parks, and easy access to a variety of shopping needs.
The home we are highlighting today for sale in Ocean Pointe, 91-1311 Kaileolea Street, hits all those location marks, of course, and it amplifies them, because the interior of this property has been completely remodeled – and done so in terrific taste!
There’s simply no room in this home that cannot immediately be made yours.
Take a look:
About the Area: Ewa Beach
Approximately 16 miles from Honolulu International Airport, the postal code for Ewa Beach extends inland to the developments of Ocean Pointe, ʻEwa Gentry, Iroquois Point, and ʻEwa Villages.
In the late 19th century to early 20th century, ʻEwa was one of the large population centers on the Island of Oʻahu, with industry focused around sugarcane production. The ʻEwa Mill was a major employer that set up residential villages. Sugarcane is no longer grown on the ʻEwa Plain and Ocean Pointe, Ewa Gentry, and Ewa Villages are now part of Oʻahu’s new suburban growth center. This area is now referred to as Oʻahu’s Second City, with a city center (downtown) located in Kapolei with the newly built family- friendly shopping, dining, and event experience at Ka Makana Ali’i – The Center for West Oahu.
