Hawai'i HomeOwnership Center

Many young adults in Hawai’i’s Millennial Generation, ages 22 to 37, are living at home with their parents or leaving for the mainland to buy a home.  But there are some Millennials who have figured it out.

The State and Counties are trying to meet a projected demand for 65-thousand housing units by 2030.  That estimate from the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism.   But as HPR’s Wayne Yoshioka reports, one millennial couple is not waiting for the government and is choosing to buy now.

Loren Bullard and fiancé Colin Hosking are Millennials in their early 30’s.   They took classes at the Hawai’i HomeOwnership Center, and a year-and-a-half later, they cashed in their savings for a 32-thousand dollar down payment on a condominium.
