Which is better? West or East Hawaii?

When deciding on buying a home and living on Hawaii Island, one of the biggest questions is..which side of the island is best?
We asked Lance Owens, LUVA Real Estate and Amber Haley, REAL Broker (with some opinions thrown in by Julie Ziemelis, KW Big Island, too!) what they thought and why!
An entertaining discussion ensues. Let us know YOUR thoughts!

Julie and Eric Ziemelis are Realtors with KW Big Island and are creators of the 365 Hawaii Real Estate Minute and 365Hawaii YouTube channel. Learn more at www.365HawaiiLiving.com or to schedule a Zoom call to discuss moving to the island, email Julie@Ziemelis.com
