Why are homes so inexpensive in the Pahoa area as compared to the Kona area?

    cause when you live in the pahoa area, you've got the constant threat of the volcano on your back door. also, it's more rainy there, so not as many tourists want to be there.

    The Volcano thing plus, it's so far away from everything. Not much to do in Pahoa. Kona is a growing community complete with K-mart and Barnes and Nobel.

    PHILDENI hit it on the nose. I am originally from Pahoa so I know all about that town. It really is the armpit of the Big Island... sad to say. It never used to be that way when I grew-up there in the 70's and 80's.

    hulagirl...wow! How did you come across this? It was back in March when I commented. Good to know that I "guessed" correctly. Thanks. Phil
