Although last month we celebrated Halloween, Buyers on Oahu did not appear to be spooked by the current prices. We were in somewhat of an equilibrium from the same month last year. The median sales price of a single family home was up 2.4% to $640,000, and sales volume was also up slightly by 2.8% with 280 closings last month.

Oahu Condo Statistics
On the condo front, prices remained unchanged from a year ago with a median sales price of $325,000. Sales volume was off slightly from a year ago with 419 sales and down 1.4%.
I’m not sure if this is a sign of slowing in our condo market that has been robust the last few months? Considering things haven’t changed much compared to the same month last year, I think it’s a good sign of a healthy market for both Buyers and Sellers.
