December 7 News Release: January 2016 Honolulu real estate statistics

“January was an extremely strong month for home resales on Oahu,” said Kalama Kim, 2016 president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. “Both single-family and condominium sales were up by double digits over January 2015, an indication that demand for all forms of housing remains high. The primary drivers of rising housing prices are shortages of inventory and new development. We’re seeing especially heavy activity in single-family homes priced in the $600,000 to $800,000 range, and condominiums in the $200,000 to $400,000 range. More inventory in these ranges is needed to meet demand. The Leeward area, Central Oahu plain, and Pearl City showed big gains in January 2016 and lead the market in home sales.”
