Honolulu County Real Estate Market Report- October 2009
Honolulu County Housing Market Statistics for October 2009 showed continued activity with the Hawaii Home Buyer picking up on the FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER TAX CREDIT.
Single Family Resale Numbers: In the our sales numbers for single family homes showed a very slight increase in sold single family homes from 244 to 281. The Median Sales price rose from $600,000 in September to $605,000 in October. This is an increase of 15.6% from October 2008 to 2009 and also shows a slight increase of 0.83% from September to October of 2009 in sales prices.
Condo/Townhouse Resale Numbers: Our Honolulu Real Estate Housing Market sales numbers for condos/townhouses increased slightly from 345 in September to 381 in October of 2009 and we can attribute the sales number increase the past month due to the lowering inventory on the island of Oahu. Honolulu County Median sales prices increased 20.5% from September of 2008 to September 2009 and decreased 3.2% in sales prices from $305,000 to $295,000.
I believe these ups and downs will continue as our market tries to find a happy median. With the FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER TAX CREDIT EXTENSION approved, interest rates still lower and inventory considerable down in all neighborhoods the shifting is evident with more homebuyers in the market.
These Honolulu County Market Statistics vary from neighborhood to neighborhood and I continue to experience multiple offers on homes and townhouses in all areas in Honolulu County including short sales. Stay tuned for more neighborhood market statistics or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
