Junly 2016 - Sales of single family homes decreased by 4.5% compared to July 2015 while condominium sales decreased by 11.4% compared to July 2015. The median price paid for single family homes in July 2016 increased by 5.1% from the same month last year to $746,000. The median price for condominiums increased by 14.3% from July 2015 to $400,000. According to the Days on Market indicator, the median days on market for single family homes was 16 days, and 18 days for condominiums.
“While sales of both single family homes and condos dipped compared to the previous year, the increase in prices year over year for both indicates the housing market is still very strong,” said Kalama Kim, 2016 president of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS. “The drop in condo sales is typical of the cyclical nature of the real estate market. Historically, we’ve seen a peak in condo resales during the summer, followed by a slight dip the following month. As for prices, a decrease in the number of sales with a corresponding increase in prices usually means buyers are being more aggressive with their offers.That said, home affordability is more favorable than a decade ago because of extremely low mortgage interest rates.”
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. They also have 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.
