     As I'm looking at the statistics that just came out from the Honolulu Board of Realtors, I'm laughing! Mainly because at the beginning of the year I actually thought that maybe the market may start to slow down in 2016 (see my article from March 2016 below in the blogs)... Boy, was I wrong!

      Not only did our market continue to soar in 2016, but December was the 2nd highest month for # of sales. December is usually a bit slower as expected with the Holiday's.

 

     The median home price for Oahu went up from $700K to $735K. And the median condo price went up from $360K to $390K respectively. The Honolulu Board of Realtors calls this "stable". The average days on market for both SFH and condo's went down (that's a good thing) to 18

      It seems that prices are still continuing to rise in the residential housing market here. As we begin to come upon the "busy season" of sales, there are some interesting trends to note as we compare last years statistics to this years.

    The median home price for single family homes has risen again to $725,000 from last years $700,000. That's a 3.6% rise. Last year at this time the median home price had risen 7.2% from the previous year....could we finally be slowing down? The end of the year statistics will show us a better picture, so stay tuned for that in the months to come.

    The median home price for condo/townhome's also rose to $385,000 from $380,000, respectively. That's only a 1.3% increase from last year, compared to the rise of

     As the summer selling season draws to a close and we start to approach the holiday season, I wanted to give you an idea of our local market and the trends that are happening now compared to last year.

     For single family homes and condo's, inventory is down in most area's which will tend to drive up prices. When X number of buyers are looking at Z number of houses, and X is greater than Z, that means bidding wars ensue (from buyers) which always end up pushing sale prices higher.

     For single family homes, median sales prices went up this year 6.45% compared to the median sales price in 2014. The average days on market went up 3 days, to 25 days on market, compared to last years 22 DOM.

     For condominium/town homes, the median sales

For the 4th year in a row, Tony Kawaguchi and his Aloha Tony team have received the honors of being on this prestigious list of top producing agents in the state of Hawaii. The data is compiled from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and there are a few criteria that are considered from this.

1. Only MLS transactions in Hawaii

2. Only residential sales are counted. (no vacant land or commercial)

3. No new home sales are counted. (which is a shame since Realtor's often find homes in new construction developments)

4. Primary listing agents receive full credit, co-listing agents do not receive credit.

5. Both buyers agent and sellers agent are credited for the full sales price amount.

6. If the Realtor represents both seller and buyer,

   You may have noticed that home prices are increasingly rising in Hawaii. Sellers are receiving multiple offers and backup offers due to low inventory. This has resulted in above asking price offers. Lets talk about how real estate is expected to be affected in 2015. Or rather, how it will affect you as a homeowner and/or a buyer.

   The median home price (on this rock, Oahu) has steadily risen in the last 5 years, since the bubble burst. (which I might add, only affected home prices minimally in comparison to our mainland comrades) It is currently at $690K and economists believe that by 2020, the median home price on Oahu will be $1M. Some even believe that it could double by then.

Sometimes when you think of real estate on Oahu, you may think....Honolulu, big city, traffic, high rise buildings galore, etc. (Or maybe you're thinking grass huts and splitting open coconuts for breakfast. By the way, if this is you, then you REALLY need to visit Oahu!) But there is a special place that is sometimes overlooked by many people when thinking about real estate ....Kaneohe!

 Its close proximity to the H-3, the Likelike highway, and the Pali highway make it super convenient for anyone to commute into town, the west side, Pearl Harbor or the east side. And the best part about Kaneohe real estate is that you can get away from it all, have a home that has amazing views of the jagged peaks of the Ko'Olau mountains, even ocean views, be…

A newer home in Coconut Grove is a rare find. Remodeled in 2007, this 2100+ sf Kailua property is just a short bike ride to the beach (a huge selling point for the buyer). Duplexes can share a lot of wall space with the neighboring unit, but this home is only minimally attached at a storage shed between garages. 

This was a great deal for our clients considering the amount of interior living space in Kailua's Coconut Grove. The property also has a covered two-car garage and a lush, spacious backyard with tropical foliage. We're happy to have helped our clients find and purchase their new Kailua home.

A variety of tropical palms on both sides of the property greet you upon arrival. The common wall is on the storage shed to the right of the garage (no

With an asking price of $24.9 million, the exquisite property of 210 North Kalaheo Ave. in Kailua is currently the highest priced home for sale in all of Oahu. But what's most stunning about this home, other than its gorgeous design and countless luxury features, is that its original asking price when it went on sale in 2011 was $36 million. That's a reduction of $11.1 million - probably the largest price drop in Hawaii real estate history! Luxury buyers should take note, because as far as top-tier homes in Hawaii go, this one is a serious bargain.

 

 

With countless features and amenities to boast about, one hardly knows where to begin when describing this incredible piece of real estate. With an 11,000 square foot estate which includes a
