2017 got off to a sluggish start as prices remained stagnant for both single family homes and condos. Transaction volume on the other hand had a significant bump from January of 2016.

January 2017 Sales Stats on Oahu

Single Family Home Stats

Kalihi Valley Home for $729,000

This home in Kalihi Valley (MLS # 201702779) is listed just under January's median for $730,000

The median sales price was down .5% from last year where it was $733,500. Sales volume was up 6.5% with 247 closed sales. It was still a Seller's Market with days on market. Last year was at 20 days and this year was still great with the median time just 21 days. There's also 5% less inventory than there was last year, which is showing great absorption of homes listed for sale.

Condo Stats

Punchbowl Condo for $380,000

Punchbowli Condo (MLS # 201702077) listed for January's median of $380,000

While single family home prices were down slightly the median condo price was just barely up 1.5% from last year's $374,500. Two stats that really stood out at me were:

1. Median Days on Market jumped 30% from 20 to 26 days

2. Active Listings were down 7.3% from last year
