Oahu Home Sales and Prices Up in February (2012) While Condos Were Down
Oahu Home Sales and Prices
February was a strong month for the single family home market on Oahu. Prices were up 9.6% to $625,000, while sales were up 19% to 217 island wide.
This Mililani home (MLS# 1115056) is priced at February’s median price of $625,000
Sales of homes (that sold) moved briskly with an average of just 34 days on market! Keep in mind, there are many, many homes that have not sold. Those that are withdrawn and expired aren’t factored in to these stats. It does go to show that we have a healthy market here. Homes that are priced well aren’t on the market much more than a month.
Oahu Condo Sales and Prices
Condo inventory was moving fairly quick as well with an average of 40 days on market. Condo prices, however, were down slightly from last year by 1.6% to $315,000 and the number that sold dropped by 23.1% to 227 sales.
This Ilikai Condo (MLS# 1112757) is priced at February’s median price of $315,000
