As we approach the end of the year, it's that time when all the 2024 prediction articles are making their way into the spotlight. We've sifted through insights from Redfin, Zillow, Bankrate, and Forbes, and here's the consensus of what to expect on a national scale, presented in a straightforward manner:

  1. Home prices are expected to decrease.
  2. Inventory levels are anticipated to increase.
  3. Mortgage rates are projected to decrease.
  4. Demand for rentals is expected to rise.
  5. Foreclosures are likely to increase.

However, when we shift our focus to Hawaii, the local real estate landscape differs from the national market. While home prices may experience minimal decreases and inventory remains a persistent challenge, the demand for rentals is expected to remain relatively stable. Hawaii stands apart from other states due to its limited land availability and one of the highest costs of living in the nation. In fact, Forbes recently reported that Hawaii has the highest household debt per capita. If you're interested in delving deeper into Hawaii's cost of living, you can explore our dedicated article here.

We understand that the cost of living in Hawaii can be on the higher side, and our local real estate market doesn't always follow national trends precisely. However, what remains evident is that investing in Hawaii's real estate is a solid decision. Hawaii has a history of consistent annual appreciation in home values, a trend that not many states can boast. That said, we invite you to explore Hawaii's housing market across Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island in this report, where you'll find valuable statistics and property listings.
