I spent most of the evening tonight looking into the feasibilty of moving to Hawaii with a couple of dogs and without regard for the actual cost of moving. Basically I was just looking to see the availability of homes and vacant land at something within shouting distance of affordable. Sadly, Honolulu is out of the question. Good grief. The cheapest I could found was a couple of shacks for $190k+ and those all had lease terms. The Big Island showed a little more promise though. I think if we played our cards right we could probably find something livable reasonably near Hilo. The other option of course is buying land and building. This might be possible as well assuming we build nothing bigger than a two bedroom house.
