January 7 News Release: December 2015 Honolulu real estate statistics

"The strong sales trend which began before last summer has continued,‖ said Kalama Kim, president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. Demand for condominiums was especially high, pushing the median price to a new record. There were 226 sales under $400,000, compared to 11 that were for more than $1 million. This shows that most of the condo sales took place at the affordable end of the spectrum. The downtown metro area saw a burst in sales, which may be the result of the number of attractive units available in those areas. We’re encouraged by the jump in new listings – we saw a 13.5 percent increase in condominiums, and 5.8 percent in single-family homes. More inventory at all price points is essential to meeting the demand in the market. Looking ahead, the increase in pending sales for both single family homes and condominiums last month may lead to stronger sales figures in the next few months once those transactions close."
