SPECIAL NOTE: Prior to renting, leasing, purchasing, or obligating to housing off-base, all military personnel with dependents are required to check in to their respective Family Housing Office soon after reporting into the unit/command. Failure to comply may result in the forfeiture of Temporary Lodging Allowance (TLA), an entitlement to cover temporary lodging and meals since this is viewed by the government as having secured permanent housing.

Military families on a waiting list for government quarters or those who prefer to live off base must compete with the civilian population for adequate rental housing in Oahu's high-cost housing market.
The majority of rental housing on Oahu is multiplex construction because of limited land availability and the large number of local residents.
Rental houses are also generally small with fewer bedrooms and less living space than a service member has been accustomed to on the mainland. Arriving families are therefore finding it difficult to find a home, whether rental or on base, large enough to accommodate their shipment of household goods. We suggest service members consider using non-temporary storage prior to their departure from continental U.S. locations. Non-temporary storage at their CONUS location is authorized and should be used for excess furnishings and cold-weather clothing.
Home Purchase OptionsThe median sales price for a condominium is currently $700,000 and $850,000 for a single-family home. Condominiums average between 600 and 900 square feet. Single-family dwellings average between 1,200 and 1,800 square feet. The Fort Shafter Housing Services Office has a volunteer real estate agent on site who can assist with home purchase information and options. The Volunteer Realtor Program is a no-strings-attached program meant to provide service members with the tools needed to make informed decisions about purchasing.Mobile HomesThere are no mobile homes in Hawaii.
