Is the Real Estate Market Shifting?

That is the question on everyone’s mind. As more inventory becomes available, we are seeing longer days on market. There are price adjustments in high-end neighborhoods. Of course, all real estate is local.

Depending on price point, your neighborhood may still be experiencing price appreciation. Overall, we are still facing a housing shortage. There is still pent up demand. So what does it all mean? What can you expect?

Consider that Real Estate is Cyclical

Shifts are inevitable. They occur when supply and demand move out of balance. When housing exceeds buyer demand, it is a buyer’s market. When buyer demand exceeds supply, it’s a seller’s market. A shift occurs when the market transitions from one to another.

Several factors can create a shift:

  • Global factors such as currency exchange rates.
  • The overall political climate.
  • National factors such as interest rates and inflation.
  • Local factors such as neighborhood dynamics and housing prices.

Ultimately, it all comes down to buyer demand, which in large part is fueled by affordability and perception.

Market Shifts Aren’t Necessarily Bad

For those wishing to trade up, there may be more opportunity to sell an existing property and buy a replacement property. For buyers just entering the market, there will be time to take a breath and a second look before submitting a purchase contract. For sellers, it might mean strategizing to maximize profit via a good marketing plan, proper preparation, and promotion.

The good news is that there is an opportunity in every market. Hawaii will continue to be a sure bet when it comes to Hawaii real estate investment.

ハワイの不動産市場 冷え込んでる❓ Is realestate market in Hawaii ok?

クライアントさんが心配して連絡をくださいました。 武田さん どうしてる? 仕事大丈夫❓ 心配ありがとうございます。 データ 的には まだ 冷え込んではいません。 大丈夫デス。 数字がお好きな方のためにちょっとデーターをお知らせすると ホノルルに関しては 制約数は戸建て、コンド合計で昨年比にすると23.3%落ちているけど 今年の5月に比べると6月は22.3% も上がっているんですね〜 価格帯にもよりますが 特に1億以下の物件は動いています。  インベントリ〜が少なめなのとローンの利息が低い事が重なって、ローカルマーケットは特に忙しい様です。 高額物件になると 海外からのバイヤーが頼りなところもあるので 物件ありきかなとも思っていますが 実際 3月にコロナが始まって4月には弊社も人員削減をしたりしてたのを今月になってモドして来ています。 と言うのも マウイ島、ハワイ島、オアフ島の順番に最近売り上げが伸びて来ていて 今年前半弊社売り上げ 600億をすでに超えています。 7月にフェデラルからの失業保険が失効した場合にもしかすると売りが出てくるかなと言う気がしています。 そうなったらまたそれに飛びついて購入する人も出て来ますね One of my client was worried about me since Covid 19 started and hawaii …
