Demand for luxury real estate across Oahu continues throughout the summer months according to the latest July Luxury Market Update from Hawaii realtor, Caron b Davis.
The luxury home market remained strong in July. There were 50 home sales, well over the typical numbers we saw last year and pre-pandemic. The median price of $2,622,500 is the 2nd highest we’ve seen this year. Homes sold after only 44 days on market, about twice as fast as last year. The biggest difference this month was in the percentage of homes sold above asking price – nearly half of the homes sold in July were at or above asking price, compared to 12.5% in 2020 and 19% in 2019. Additionally, the average listing to sold ratio was 100%, compared to 93% in 2020 and about 96% in 2019.
