April 7 News Release: March 2017 Honolulu real estate statistics

“Oahu median home prices and sales volume are holding steady, and properties are selling briskly, as indicated by the relatively short days on market,” said Sue Ann Lee, president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. “The increase in pending sales shows that there’s continued demand for housing at all price points. Additionally, with the more than 37 percent increase in inventory for single-family houses and 27 percent increase for condominiums from last year, and the still historically low mortgage interest rates, potential buyers have options for their new home.”
