Let's face it: there is never a bad time to sell your home in Hawaii! But with school out and a lot of military families starting to arrive, summer becomes a very good time for home sales.

Here are a few tips on getting the most for your home, and even possibly getting multiple offers.

1. De-clutter your entire home. Keep 'knick knacks' down to a minimum and take down a few of those family vacation photos. This will help other people be able to see themselves in your home and help to not distract them when they're viewing your home.


2. Make sure your yard, lanai, and garage are as clean/picked up/de-cluttered as possible. These area's serve as entertainment area's in homes in Hawaii so they really help buyers see value in your home.

      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

     We recently sold a home in Makakilo-Anhuea, within the Palehua Home Owners Association. Anuhea is a subdivision developed by DR Horton-Schuler Homes in 2005. The homes are very well built with steel frames and nice floor plans. This neighborhood consists of 109 homes that are a CPR. CPR is short for Condo property regime. But these are all detached, single family homes. The CPR refers to the way that the land was split up by the developer.


    The floor plans are all very open and have nice sized bedrooms. There are 4 different floor plans with many variations of them all. They are all 3-4 bedroom, 2, 2.5 or 3 bathroom and range from 1285-1817 sq ft.


    The homes have a traditional exterior elevation and all have nice vinyl

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.

emily0622_324The President announced this week that 10,000 troops will return home from Afghanistan by the end of this year, and another 23,000 by the end of next summer, a drawdown of the 30,000-troop surge he ordered to fight there in 2009.  

So 30,000 troops will return home from Afghanistan by next year, and that means that thousands of those soldiers from Schofield Army Barracks, Pearl/Hickam, and Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps Base will be returning to Hawaii.  And since there is already a wait list for homes on the military bases here, that means they and their families will have to rent or buy a house.  Either way, it's good for Oahu real estate. 

There is already a shortage of homes for sale on Oahu, and if even 200 more military families buy a house (like

[UPDATE] - Price has been lowered to $660,000! 

What kind of home can you buy on Oahu for under $700k?  This house, just listed this week in Royal Kunia, might be one of the best homes available.  It's in a great newer neighborhood just 20 minutes to Schofield army base, and 30-40 minutes to downtown Honolulu.

This house is in Royal Kunia, a master planned community just North of Ewa Beach, about 1/2 mile to the freeway.  It has 2 good sized shopping areas, and a lot of nice open space.  The newly built neighborhood recreation center, available only to Royal Kunia residents, is one of the nicest on Oahu. 

This beautiful home is 2140 sqft, has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a very large loft, and a nice new den addition of 10x11 feet that is not

I just listed this house on Friday, and it seriously has the nicest kitchen you will ever see in this price range - $640k.  kitchen_400

 Royal Kunia has some great homes, but this one is probably one of the best, and certainly has the best kitchen in the neighborhood by far.  The owner spent $100k on custom cabinets, Bosche applianaces, and more. 

 The house also has a huge corner lot with 3 large grassy fields in front of it. That's right, I said 3 grass areas.  You could play 3 games of football within 50 feet of the house.

The owners are maticulous in their care for the home, and enjoy entertaining in the huge 400sqft lanai that they added a couple years ago. 

You want a great house in Kunia?  This is the one. At over 1800ft with 4 bedrooms, it's got
