Oahu condominium sales and median prices increase, single-family home sales dip in February
Housing prices and sales for
Oahu were mixed in February,
according to resale
figures released by the
Honolulu Board of Realtors.
During Feb. 2018, sales of singlefamily
homes decreased slightly by1.8
percent from Feb. 2017, while condominium
sales increased modestly by
6.4 percent. The median price paid
for single-family homes increased by
2.3 percent from the same month last
year to $772,500. The median price
for condominiums was $409,000, an
increase of 6.2 percent. According to
the Days on Market indicator, the median
days for single-family homes was
19 and 23 days for condominiums.
“The slower pace of sales and
modest increase in median prices for
both housing categories is typical this
time of year, as February has traditionally
been the slowest month,’ said
Darryl Macha, president of the Honolulu
Board of Realtors. “While pending
sales were slightly down from last
year, it’s encouraging to see that new
listings increased, especially the 18
percent gain in the condominium market.
We expect to see a slow increase
in sales starting in March through the
peak, usually in July and August.”
The public is encouraged to visit
www.hicentral.com to see what’s
happening in the housing market.
Consumers have the ability to browse
Oahu single-family home and condominium
