April 2018 - single family homes sold increased by 3.2% and condominium sales rose by 12.6% from April 2017. The median price paid for single family homes increased by 10.9 % to $790,000 from the same time period last year, while condos prices remained relatively flat increasing by 0.1% to $416,000. According to the Days on Market indicator, single-family home sales closed at about the same pace from last year at a median of 17 days, while sales were slower for condominiums, with units on the market for 18 days, up from 15 days. New listings for single family homes and condominiums increased from April 2017 by 13.2% and 11.3%, respectively.
“Potential homebuyers should be encouraged by the double digit boost in new listings of single-family homes and condominiums for sale that happened in April,” said Darryl Macha, president of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “It appears that sellers are beginning to list properties in anticipation of the traditionally busy summer season. The increase in inventory is promising, however it’s still not enough to keep up with the demand for housing at all price points. With the recent legislation passed at the state level, we hope more of our residents will realize their dream of homeownership.”

What's an MLS?
MLS is an abbreviation for "Multiple Listing Service." These are the services that provide listing information to realtors and their customers throughout the country. Each region has its own MLS system. In Hawaii, the largest MLS system is operated by the Honolulu Board of Realtors. Listings are primarily for the island of Oahu. The Oahu MLS also has listings for Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. As a member of the Honolulu Board of Realtors, Mike Bates is able to present the listings on this website for public access.
Two Types of MLS
Participation in a multiple listing service (MLS) maybe voluntary or mandatory. In Hawaii, sellers may choose to list with the realtor of their choice and participate in the MLS (voluntary). If seller chooses not to participate, his or her listings will not appear on the internet.
Mandatory participation is required in some regions; that is, when a seller chooses to hire a realtor to sell his or her home, it will automatically be included in the MLS.
History of the National Association of Realtors
The National Association of Real Estate Exchanges was founded on May 12, 1908. Its purpose was to unite realtors of America for their combined influence upon matters affecting real estate. In 1916 the organization's name was changed to the National Association of Real Estate Boards and the term "realtor" was invented to identify real estate professionals. In 1972 the organization was renamed to the National Association of Realtors and that name has stuck for nearly 50 years.
