November 7 News Release: October 2017 Honolulu real estate statistics

“Oahu’s housing market continues to be strong with consistent sales and steady median prices,” said Sue Ann Lee, president of Honolulu Board of Realtors. “The fall is traditionally a slower time for home sales, but demand is still robust as there are double digit increases in pending sales for single-family houses, as well as condominiums and townhomes. However, even with a rise in new listings, we still need more inventory to meet the pent up demand for housing.”
