The landscaping was designed for photography, each square foot as picturesque as the next – complete with trickling koi ponds, bridges, a stepping stone path, and cascading waterfall framed by the Koolau Mountains.

The roof is a feat of craftsmanship, with cedar shingles layered to resemble ‘nalu’ or waves. Built around a central foyer constructed with 25-foot Ohia posts, with a cantilevered staircase leading to uniquely designed in/outdoor balconies showcasing staggering ocean views just a few hundred yards away, the home displays incredible architectural ingenuity.

15. April 2019 · Comments Off on Oahu Market Report – March 2019 · Categories: Hawaii Real Estate, Market Report, Oahu Monthly Market Report

We’re pleased to share the Oahu real estate update for March 2019.

March saw a slight increase in median sales prices for single family homes while condominium prices saw a slight decline in the most recent 12 month period. Single family home prices reached a median sales price of $780,000, an increase of 2% YTD from $765,000 the same time last year. The median sales price for condominiums dipped slightly to $411,250 down 3.2% YTD from $425,000 the same time last year.

Although closed sales have slightly declined in both single family homes and condominiums year-to-date, inventory appears to still be the driving factor. Both single family homes and condominiums are at about 3.5 months of inventory, indicators that we are still in a very healthy real estate market. At the same time, double digit increases in active listings and months of inventory for both single family and condos are indicators that home buyers have more inventory to choose from and may be able to negotiate better prices and terms. Interest rates also saw a decline in the recent months which presents a perfect opportunity for home buyers.

Full Report.
