Oahu Homes Sales Down While Prices Remain Stable

article top
BY DAVID BUCK R, BIC In April, we experienced one of the largest dips in home sales on Oahu in awhile.

Hillcrest Home for Sale

This Honolulu home (MLS# 1014958) is priced at April’s median price of $585,000


Existing home sales were down 19.6% from the previous year. Condo sales were also down 6.7%. On a brighter note, prices were stable as the median sales price on Oahu was up 3.5% for homes to $585,000 and down just 0.7% to $305,000 for condos.

Although the dip in home sales may be alarming, April is typically a slower month as people are preparing their taxes. This was also the first bump up in prices this year.
