Market Update: Oahu, Hawaii May 2023

Due to the rapid changes in the market, we continue to share statistics that compare last month with the month previous instead of the same month in the previous year. The reduction in luxury home sales from March to April is not an indication of a quiet market but rather a shortage of inventory. There are some neighborhoods with over 2000 homes but with only one listing.

The number of condo sales did not change month to month. Interestingly, the percentage of both condos and homes that sold above at or above asking price increased about 10 percentage points from March to April. This could be an indication that pricing is leveling off and we will see more competitive offers moving forward.
