New listings of single-family homes increased by 21.8 percent, while condominiums increased by 18.8 percent over last January. According to the Days on Market indicator, the median days for both single-family homes and condominiums was 27 days.
“We started 2019 with very healthy increases in new listings for both single-family homes and condominiums, adding to the inventory available to potential buyers,” said Jenny L. Brady, 2019 president of the Honolulu Board of REALTORS®. “In recent years, this volume of listing activity would have been more typical during the spring and summer months, so buyers have more options to consider earlier in the year. Conditions point towards a balanced market for both buyers and sellers.” – Honolulu Board of Realtors
