Let’s see what the President of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®, Chad Takesue said.

“It was clearly a seller’s market in 2021. Not only did properties enter escrow at a record pace, but they often marked multiple offers and sold for a premium.

With high demand and dismal inventory of Single-Family Homes, buyers turned their sights to condos, driving competitive activity in some areas and leading to low supply in this market as well. As a result, every price point in the condo market saw more sales in 2021 and every region across Oʻahu marked more sales.”

Oahu Home Sellers

Sellers, now is a great time to put your home on the market. There’s still not a lot of inventory on the island. Interest rates have increased a little bit but they are still low. The demand is strong and we’re still seeing multiple offers and quick sales.

So, if you’re thinking about selling, there is no better time than now. Hire a realtor who you can trust and work with closely. You want someone who understands your goals and works hard to achieve them. And, of course, someone who knows the island and housing market well.

Oahu Home Buyers

Buyers, it’s important to be prepared to make a competitive offer. Most homes are receiving multiple offers and sometimes but not always the highest bid wins. It’s also important to be aware of your budget and what you can afford. There are many great homes out there, but remember that you need to factor in closing costs, HOA fees, insurance, and property taxes.
