sales stats: Best Places to Buy or Sell Oahu Real Estate in March - 04/26/13 05:35 PM
A little over a year ago, the Honolulu Board of Realtors started releasing their monthly stats in 2 parts. The first was the overall market reports and the second was the local market updates. The later wasn’t released until the 2nd half of the month, which is why my articles were hitting so late. I’ve decided to break them out in 2 parts as well going forward. A few weeks back I wrote about thestrength of the condo market here in March.

Hawaii Kai was hot for buyers in March. This Koko Villas one (MLS# 1206065) is looking good…

sales stats: Oahu Condo Sales were Strong in March - 04/26/13 05:32 PM
Following the momentum of February’s strong condo sales, March was another strong month. Sales were up an incredible 73.1% and the median sales price up 11.2% to $346,700. I actually had to do a double check when I saw that sales were up that much.
Looking closer at the data, it appears the reason for the huge increase was Holomua (a new construction project) closed out last month. When you take out the Holomua closings and only consider resales, our sales were still up 21.6% and the median price would have been up 9.1% to $340,000, which are still strong gains when comparing to March … (0 comments)
