Single Family Home prices and sales volume were both up from the same month last year. The average sales price for the 2nd month this year topped $1 Million. The market is still moving along, even with the increase in interest rates and promises from the Fed to further increase interest rates. The summer months are historically the best months for real estate on Oahu.

Condos and townhouses saw a small dip in volume, following a big April. There was also a decrease in the number of condos listed for sale. The median price and average price did climb over the same month last year.

On Oahu, sales have been strong.  Lower priced properties are still moving extremely fast and seeing multiple offers in many neighborhoods.

Mortgage rates have seen small increases.  An interest increase will raise the monthly mortgage
payments for homes, faster than price increases. Buyers have been scrambling to get their home before they are no longer affordable. In some cases, sellers are putting their homes on the market sooner than they originally planned to take advantage of market conditions.
