Best neighborhoods for the first time buyer on budget include Waimanalo and Enchanted Lake. The most popular luxury home area in this region is Lanikai.

The Kaneohe area is another ideal region for the first time buyer, with prices under $300,000 in Kaawa and a bit over that in Halekauwila and Ahuimanu. Luxury residences in the Kaneohe region are located primarily in Nohanani Tract. 

Makaha, Nanakuli and Waianae are three popular communities in what the local Multiple Listing Service calls the Leeward region.

The big waves and laid-back lifestyle of Oahu’s North Shore area beckon many. Luxury homebuyers may want to visit the Mokuleia area while first-time buyers or those with a smaller budget will find their new home in the Laie and Kahuku communities. 

Some other communities to consider for the first time buyer include Waipahu and Pearl City.
