The market reports for Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii have arrived, giving us a glimpse into the trends of June 2023. But before we delve into the specifics, let's zoom out and examine the broader national real estate market.

The U.S. housing market maintains a steady pace amidst a season that is typically busy. The combination of low inventory and higher borrowing costs has restrained market activity as we enter the summer homebuying season. Recent data from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) shows a modest 0.2% increase in national existing-home sales compared to the previous month, yet a significant 20.4% decline from the same time last year. Fluctuating mortgage rates and near-historic lows in inventory levels continue to influence home sales. Nationwide, total housing inventory has grown by 3.8% from the previous month, providing a 3-month's supply at the current sales pace.

It is important to keep in mind that the data provided for both the local and national markets focuses specifically on the resale market. This includes homes or condos that have been previously owned. If your interest lies in exploring brand new homes with no prior ownership, we recommend referring to our New Homes Hawaii Report.

Oahu Market Report

The Honolulu Board of REALTORS® reported a 4.5% year-over-year decrease in the median sales price for both single-family homes and condos in June.

Sales for single-family homes dropped by 30.5%, and condo sales fell by 24.9% compared to the same period last year. However, the market remained relatively brisk, with most properties going under contract in just over two weeks.
