Most Expensive Pearl City Neighborhoods
Pearl City is a medium-sized coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Hawaii. With a population of 49,325 people and nine constituent neighborhoods, Pearl City is the second largest community in Hawaii.
Housing costs in Pearl City are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Hawaii.
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Pearl City is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Pearl City is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Pearl City who work in office and administrative support (18.26%), sales jobs (10.30%) and management occupations (8.25%).
There are quite a few people in the armed forces living in Pearl City, and when you visit or drive around town, you will see military people in and out of uniform, shopping, enjoying life, and being part of the community.
Pearl City is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
One downside of living in Pearl City is that it can take a long time to commute to work. In Pearl City, the average commute to work is 30.24 minutes, which is quite a bit higher than the national average.

But notably, a substantial number of Pearl City‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the bus.
