Honolulu County Real Estate Housing Market Numbers
Honolulu County Hawaii Homes Market Statistics for JULY 2009 definitely shows an increase in activity and sales prices. Our market is stabilizing and we do believe we just may have bottomed out.
In the Honolulu Real Estate | Market Report for June 2009 our sales numbers for single family homes showed an increase from 225 in May to 254 in June. Now for July we have had 265 sales and the Median Sales price rose from $569,000 in June to $595,000 in July! An increase upwards of 4.6% in sales prices and upwards of 5.6% in sales numbers!
Condo/Townhouse Resale Numbers: Our Honolulu Real Estate Housing Market sales numbers for condos/townhouses decreased in the past month although median sales prices increased from $310,000 to $312,000. With 263 sales in May to 293 sold units in June we now see a slight decrease in sales to 327 sold units. The sales prices increased upwards to 0.6%!
Could this be a turn around for our market now? We're hoping so. Business has picked up for all, interest rates are down and inventory slowly going down in all neighborhoods. We credit the continuous shrinking inventory for our stable price levels and we're hoping the housing industry has seen it's bottom in Honolulu County.
Honolulu County Market Statistics vary from neighborhood to neighborhood and I'll be giving you updates throughout the month for July 2009. If your situation and circumstances allow....it just may be your time to buy and also utilize that $8,000 first time home buyer credit this year.
