Located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii Kai is the largest of several communities at the eastern end of the island. The area was largely developed in the 1950s by Henry J. Kaiser whose dream of creating a community where quality of life was reflected in every home and open space became a reality. Upscale and vibrant, Hawaii Kai includes the notable neighborhoods of Mariners Ridge, Kalama Valley, Queens Gate, Hahaione Valley, and the renowned Portlock. Hawaii Kai’s residents enjoy a peaceful, quiet, yet energetic place, with wide waterways and gently curving roads that lead to awe-inspiring vistas. Homes are built around a series of lagoons and canals lined with rock walls, and the community also extends back into the several valleys and up their majestic ridges. With its location on serene Maunalua Bay, activities such as jet and water-skiing, boating, parasailing, kayaking and fishing are plentiful. Some of Hawaii’s most famous water spots are nearby: Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, Halona Blowhole Lookout, Makapuu and Sandy Beach. There are also two golf courses. The valleys above Hawaii Kai invite hiking or a leisurely trek to the Koko Head Botanical Garden. Koko Head Crater offers magnificent views of surf breaks and the coastline from its 646-foot summit as well as glimpses of the neighboring islands of Molokai and Lanai. The Koko Marina Center, Hawaii Kai Shopping Center and Hawaii Kai Towne Center provide the Hawaii Kai community with unique eateries, entertainment, waterfront dining, quaint boutiques, gift shops, national chain stores, financial institutions, and convenience stores.

We’re pleased to share the Oahu real estate update for May 2018.

Condominium sales lead 2018 so far this year with closed sales up 1.1% and median sales prices for condos remained the same as 2017 at $399,000.

For single family homes, sales fell slightly from 2017 activity with closed sales down 1.7% but prices remained up 4.6% to a median sales price of $775,500 year to date.

Months of inventory for both single family and condominiums still remain very low at 2.5 months of inventory for Single Family and 2.7 months for condos which are both down from their 2017 numbers. Low inventory and high demand create rising prices and these are all indicators of a very healthy real estate market.

Every home, neighborhood, and building represents its own micro-market with unique conditions and trends. If you have specific questions about your home or future home, we’re here to help.
