Although sales of single family homes on Oahu in July were down 7% from 2010, Realtors on Oahu closed as many transactions as June with 251 sales. Prices were also down 2.2% from last year. On a brighter note, they took a tick up from June’s median price of $575,000. It also took homes that sell* an average of 34 days on market.
*Homes that don’t sell aren’t factored into the 34 days on market stats. There are many homes that do not sell and are either withdrawn from the market and/or re-listed at a later date. If you attempted to sell your property without success and it is no longer on the market, feel free to contact me for more information about our smart marketing and solid representation.
The condo market on Oahu also followed the single family trend as sales were down 8.3% and the median sales price was also down 7.7% from last year to $277,000. This is the lowest median price for condos this whole year! This may be a sign of a buyer’s market brewing for condos…
