Oahu Real Estate Market Report

Oahu Real Estate Market & Neighborhood Report
 

HAWAII KAI HOME SALES AND PEARL CITY-AIEA CONDO SALES UP IN NOVEMBER

Most areas across Oahu experienced positive sales gains in November, with sales of single-family homes in Hawaii Kai and condominiums in Pearl City-Aiea seeing a notable boost in November, according to a report by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®.
 
Sales of single-family homes in the Hawaii Kai market rose by 53%, with 23 closed sales and a median price of $1,100,000, down just 1% from November 2018. New listings have been on pace with 2018. A total of 246 homes have been listed year to date, versus 252 homes last year. According to the Days on Market indicator, homes were on the market for a median of 19 days, compared to 34 days during the same time last year.

Condominium sales in Pearl City-Aiea increased by 85% and the median sales price rose by 6% to $378,000. Condos in this area sold more quickly than November 2018, with a median of 20 days on the market compared to 27 days. The Pearl City-Aiea market represented a more substantial portion of total condo sales in November at 8.5%. Both active listings and new listings remain near 2018 levels while year-to-date sales in the area are up 6%, with a flat median sales price of $389,500.
 
“Neighborhoods across the island are unique, and looking more deeply at what has sold, where the most activity is happening, and at what price point gives us a better indication of how the market is performing,” said the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “Hawaii Kai and Pearl City-Aiea continue to be popular markets, but homebuyers can find value in many markets, and it’s encouraging to see continued activity during a time when it traditionally eases back.”

OAHU SINGLE-FAMILY HOME SALES CONTINUE TO GROW

November was yet another positive month for both single-family home and condominium sales, according to the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. Single-family home sales increased by 11.1% over last November, marking the third consecutive month of double-digit percentage growth, while condominium sales slightly increased by 1.2% compared to the previous year. The median prices for both single-family homes and condominiums saw modest declines at 0.3% and 1.2%, respectively.

“The market continues to show good activity, which is encouraging for this time of year when it typically cycles towards reduced seasonal activity,” said the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “We’ve seen growth in sales with stable prices over the last few months. It’s a good time to start working with a REALTOR® who can help buyers and sellers better understand these market conditions and navigate their opportunities.”

Homes sold within the $700,000 to $799,000 price range saw the most significant sales volume increase of 36.4%, while sales of condos in the $300,000 to $499,999 range increased by 12.9%. Overall, year-to-date median sales prices continue to hold steady. The single-family year-to-date median price decreased by 0.6% from $790,000 to $785,000 over the same time last year, and the condominium year-to-date median price remains flat at $425,000.

Active condo listings continue to be positive, up 10.1% year-over-year. Meanwhile, single-family homes saw a 2.7% decline in active listings compared to the same time last year, likely due to the 15.1% decline in new single-family home listings in November and steady buyer activity. According to the Days on Market indicator, single-family homes and condominiums were on the market for a median of 23 days and 26 days, respectively.

Oahu Real Estate Market & Neighborhood Report
 

SALES VOLUME UP IN OCTOBER FOR MAKAHA-NANAKULI SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES AND WINDWARD CONDOMINIUMS

Single-family home sales and condominium sales for October were positive nearly island-wide according to the monthly local market update from the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. The most notable increases include single-family home sales in MakahaNanakuli and condominium sales in the Windward area.
 
This October, the Makaha-Nanakuli market saw a 52% increase in sales activity with 35 closed sales of single-family homes, compared to 23 closed sales the same time last year. The area accounted for approximately 10% of all single-family home sales for the month. While the median price declined slightly by 4% to $475,000, new listings were up by 29% with 45 new listings compared to 35 in October 2018. Year-to-date sales in the region remained slightly down from 2018 while the year-to-date median price is up slightly at $500,000.
 
The Kapahulu-Diamond Head, Makiki-Moiliili and Waialae-Kahala markets also saw positive sales growth for single-family homes in October, due in part to increased inventory compared to last year. At the end of October, year-to-date closed sales volume for all three areas surpassed their 2018 year-end totals, which is a positive shift from the sales decline in each of the neighborhoods last year.
 
Most of Oahu’s condo markets experienced positive sales gains over last October. Sales of condominium units in the Windward area, including Kaneohe and Kailua-Waimanalo were among the areas with the most sales volume growth in October. Sales doubled within Kaneohe with 16 closed sales compared to eight last year, while the median sales price declined slightly by 1% to $561,500. Overall inventory was up 47% despite new listings being down for the month, but for the year, new listings are up 31% compared to this time last year. KailuaWaimanalo saw about twice the amount of condo sales this October and a 40% drop in the median sales price, which is attributed to the number of condos/townhomes that sold above $800,000 last October that drove the median price up.
 
“Property types and price points vary within each neighborhood to create hyper-local real estate markets,” said the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “REALTORS®’ knowledge of this unique market data helps sellers determine appropriate price expectations and identify properties for buyers based on their needs.”

OAHU SINGLE-FAMILY HOME SALES STRENGTHEN IN SEPTEMBER

According to resale figures released today by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®, both sales of single-family homes and condominiums increased when compared to the same time last year. Single-family homes in the $400,000 to $899,999 price range saw 25.0% more sales this October compared to last year, while condominiums in the $400,000 to $699,999 range saw a 39.0% increase in sales.

“We continue to see healthy activity across O‘ahu’s real estate market, especially when it comes to sales of single-family homes in the affordable to mid-range price categories,” said the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “With conditions pointing towards a balanced market for both buyers and sellers, it’s an opportune time to contact a REALTOR® to find out more about the market trends and understand your options whether you’re looking to buy or sell your home. Favorable mortgage rates have given buyers slightly more purchasing power and we saw more sales at higher price points in the condo-townhouse market in October. However, the year-to-date median remains relatively stable at $428,000, compared to 2018’s year-to-date median of $425,000.”

During October, single-family home sales increased by 12.3% with 347 closed sales while the median price declined by 2.5% to $780,000, compared to last October’s median price of $800,000.

Condominium and townhome sales increased by 6.5%, with 472 closed sales this October versus 443 sales last October. The condominium median sales price for October was $441,000, up 13.1% over last October’s median price of $390,000.

New listings for October were mixed, with a 7.5% increase in new single-family home listings, and a 7.0% decline in new condominium listings. The market’s active listings continue to be at positive levels over 2018. According to the Days on Market indicator, the median days for single-family homes was 23 and 26 for condominiums.

Oahu Real Estate Market Report

OAHU HOUSING SALES AND MEDIAN PRICES HOLD STEADY IN AUGUST

August housing sales volume on Oahu was relatively flat over last year according to resales figures released by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®

During August, sales of 360 single-family homes and 512 condominiums closed, a 1.7 percent increase and 1.7 percent decrease, respectively, from the same month last year. This brings total single-family home sales on Oahu to 2,427 for the first eight months of 2019, down just 0.7 percent over the same time period one year ago, while total condominium sales were 3,608, a 6.4 percent decrease.

The median price for single-family homes declined marginally by 2.5 percent to $790,000, while the condominium median price decreased by 1.8 percent to $419,500. The year-to-date median prices paid for Oahu properties in the first eight months of this year were $785,000 for single-family homes and $425,000 for condos, unchanged from the 2018 prices for the same time period.

“Overall, August was a quite stable month for Oahu’s residential real estate market compared to last year,” said the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “Sales were at about the same level as 2018 and prices have been steady as well, with the majority of single-family homes and condominiums selling within a narrow price range. We continued to see double digit increases in active listings for both single-family homes and condominiums throughout this year. While properties have remained on the market a little longer, the median days on market is still under a month.”
