There is no standard but the price per sq.ft. for a single family home is based on the sq.ft. of the home itself, and it is diffferent for different areas, sizes of homes, upgrades of homes, age of homes etc., but
yes if your question is whether the 203 $ per sq.ft. refers to the home, yes it does living area.

If you are looking for property in that area of Wahiawa, do you need the recommendation of a good local Realtor to work with, as he or she would be a great resource for you to answer all you questions and concerns, arrange showings of homes, negotiate a great offer on your behalf, providing you with a market evaluation before deciding on what to offer, and sooooo much more. Let me know if I can help
with a good recommendation.

Good Luck to you

Usually you just take the sales price and divide it by the square footage of the home to get a square footage. The lot and interior are not separated. Building a home in Hawaii is more expensive than on the mainland since the materials have to be brought it. It is not uncommon to see some of the high rise condo listed at over $500-$1000 square foot. This, of course, depends on what fixtures and type of construction, etc. etc. I hope this answers your question in general.

Hi Jerome,

For condos, apartments, townhomes - living area
For single family homes - living area
For land/lots - land/lot size

SF home prices are obviously skewed since you could put a 1000 SF home on a 6000 SF lot for $450,000 = $450/SF.
OR put a 2000 SF home on a 6000 SF lot for $450,000. Price per SF = $225/SF.

You have to compare apples and apples. Even with similar properties, e.g. it's hard to generalize, even if they are in the same building. Just a rough guideline.

Aloha, my name is Mike Gallagher. I own my Brokerage.

You have to understand Hawaii Real Estate, at least on the Island on Oahu the home value is not in the home, it is mostly in the land upon which it sits upon. However, you are correct that the total Asking Price in terms of Price per Square Foot for both the home and the land is reflected in the per square foot figure. If you look at the Public Records Tax Map for any property you will see taxable values: home and land.

Hope this helps.
