The sales volume on Oahu continued to gain steam outpacing 2009 again. Single family home sales were up 32.1% and condo sales were up 36.4%. Prices were also slightly up with 4.2% appreciation onÂ homes and 3.3% appreciation for condos. While volume and prices were heading up, inventory was down 23.8% across the board compared to March of last year.

Sellers are also fairing better than they did a year ago, realizing 95.7% of asking prices for homes and 94.5% for condos across the board. In my opinion, this was driven byÂ 3 factors:
- Lower inventory
- More buyers in the marketplace with the tax credits
- Sellers have become more realistic in their asking prices
