O‘ahu Real Estate Market Continues

a Record-Setting Year

Single-family homes reach a new median sales price high

of $917,500 while condo market activity heats up


HONOLULU – According to resales figures released this week by the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®, the O‘ahu housing market continues a record-setting year as single-family homes reached a median sales price high of $917,500, a nearly 20% year-over-year increase and a 3.9% jump above last month’s record of $883,000. Single-family home sales saw a 5.3% increase and condominium sales soared 41.1% over last year.


Using data collected from its computerized Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, the Board reported the following statistics:  


Single-Family Home Resales

  Number of Sales Median Sales Price
February 2021   260 $917,500  
February 2020   247 5.3% $765,000  19.9%


Condominium Resales

  Number of Sales Median Sales Price
February 2021   446 $457,500  
February 2020   316  41.1% $430,000  6.4%


The fierce competition between buyers resulted in sellers receiving more than their asking price in 48.5% of single-family home sales and 29.1% of condo sales compared to only 19.8% and 8.9%, respectively, in February 2020. The record-setting pace of sales continued in February, as single-family homes spent only nine days on the market.


Approximately one-third of single-family homes sold were in the $700,000 to $899,999 range, nearly even with the sales a year ago. However, sales in the $1,000,000 and over range doubled, jumping to 111 sales compared to 55 sales in February 2020. The $400,000 to $499,999 range accounted for 21.3% of sales in the condo market and saw the largest increase in sales volume, up 53.2%.


New listings for single-family homes and condos declined by 19.3% and 2.5%, respectively, offering no relief to the difficulties presented by the lack of inventory. There are 774 active listings for single-family homes and 1,979 active listings for condos available on O‘ahu.


While strong demand for limited inventory and increased purchasing power through low- interest rates continues to place sustained upward pressure on prices is good news for sellers, buyers face a challenging environment with steep competition.
