Wahiawa Real Estate Analysis

At nearly 1,000 feet above sea level, the town of Wahiawa is situated in the center of the island of Oahu, about 4 miles north of Mililani and some 20 miles north of traditional downtown Honolulu. It has a population of almost 18,000. Wahiawa, which means “place of noise”, sits on the plateau between Oahu’s two mountain ranges, the Waianae Mountain range, and the Koolau Mountain range. One unique characteristic about Wahiawa is that it is surrounded on three sides by Lake Wilson, also known as Kaukonahua, the Wahiawa reservoir.
