May 7 News Release: April 2016 Honolulu real estate statistics

“The market continues to march forward at a very fast pace. Last month it took just 15 days for a single- family home to receive an acceptable offer and just 19 days for condos. While sales were generally flat year-over-year compared to April 2015, the market remains strong, as evidenced by the increase in the median sales price and pending sales,” said Kalama Kim, 2016 president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. “Condominiums continue to be a popular option for homebuyers, with the median price climbing to a record level this month. Still, we know that there are hundreds of units listed below that median price, so I’d encourage potential homebuyers to partner with a Realtor to find a home that meets their needs and fits their budget. The five percent increase in single-family home listings compared to last year is a good sign; however, we need to see more inventory at all points of the price spectrum to help meet continued demand and homebuyers’ preferences.”
