Following the (slight) dip we had on Oahu in August, September appears to be another month of the market leveling off.
Single Family Home Stats
September witnessed another month where the median sales price fell short of June’s record of $700,000. With a slight bump of .5% from last year, September’s median price was $678,500.
Kapolei home (MLS# 201417452) listed just over September’s median of $678,500
While the median price barely inched up, sales volume was up a healthy 5% from last year with 318 single family home transactions taking place. Our market still remains strong for Sellers with just a median Days of Market of only 19 days for homes to sell. On a positive note for Buyers, we have a 4.6% increase in inventory from the same month last year.
On the condo front, the stats were less impressive with both the median sales price and transaction volume taking a slight dip from last year’s banner numbers.
Ala Moana Hotel Condo (MLS# 201416592) listed under September’s median of $347,000
September’s median sales price dropped .3% from last year to $347,000 and the number of transactions was down 1.4% from last year’s 415 transactions. Similar to the single family home front, it’s still a Seller’s market in that the median Days on Market stands at just 23 Days. In addition, it’s also trending more towards a Buyer’s market with a 10.8% increase in inventory from the same month last year.
