20. September 2018 · Comments Off on Oahu Market Report – August 2018 · Categories: Hawaii Real Estate, Market Report, Oahu Monthly Market Report

We’re please to share the Oahu real estate update for August 2018.

The median price for single family homes increased 3.7% to $785,000 for the previous 12 month period. However, for the month of August alone, we saw a record median price for single family homes at $810,000, a 3% increase from August 2017. The median price for condos also increased by 6% to $425,000 over the past 12 months.

Sales for both single family homes and condos have flattened out a bit but are still relatively stable with sales for the previous 12 month period.

Available inventory continues to increase with active listings for single family homes up 14% and active condo listings up 8%. Months of inventory also increased to 2.8 months of inventory from 2.5 at the same time last year for single family. Months of inventory for condos also saw an increase to 2.9 months from 2.8 months at the same time last year. More inventory means more selections and decreased competition which is great for buyers in today’s 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.
