Oahu Home Prices Rise to New Highs in June 2024

What Happened in the Oahu Real Estate Market in June 2024?

Monthly median prices showed gains in June, hitting their highest points thus far in 2024. Home and Condo prices continue to show increasing trends in 2024, indicating ongoing overall demand. We expect to see steady sales and flat to slightly increasing prices for the general market through the end of 2024 and into 2025, driven by this sustained demand for Oahu homes and condos.

“The Oahu real estate market continues to follow typical seasonal trends, with our two markets diverging—homes remain stable and strengthen slightly, while the condo market softens,” said Chief Sales Officer for Locations Chad Takesue. “Inventory for sale and the supply-demand balance of remaining inventory are significant differences between the home and condo markets," he added. 

June was a weak month for the condo market. Sales were down 24 percent from last year, and inventory is up almost 50 percent from last year, rising six percent within the month. Days on Market increased in June, reversing from the seasonal downward trend. Condo bid-ups remained under 20 percent, missing the typical summer rise. However, condo prices slightly increased from last year, despite multiple signs of softening conditions.

Inventory increases are generally positive for the Oahu real estate market, helping ease what have been very competitive conditions in the past few years. For condos, the largest numbers of listings are in Waikiki and Ala Moana-Kakaako, but they have also had the smallest growth in inventory. The highest inventory growth markets are Mililani, Kailua/Kaneohe, and Pearl City-Aiea. Hawaii Kai condos show the lowest growth in inventory, and also the lowest Months Remaining Inventory (MRI), indicating very strong demand conditions there.

For homes, the Ewa market has the most listings, but it’s seen the lowest growth, a 17 percent decrease in available properties. All West Oahu markets have seen decreases in inventory in the past year. The highest inventory growth markets for homes are Kaimuki, Kaneohe, and North Shore. North Shore had the largest swing in supply-demand balance, and with 10.5 months of remaining inventory, it is now showing buyers' market conditions.

Glossary

  • Active Listings: Count of MLS listings with "Active" status on the last day of the period. 
  • Bid-Up %: The percent of sales that were bid-up over asking price in competitive offers. 
  • Days on Market (DOM): Median number of days between listing date and escrow date, for all properties sold in the period. 
  • Months of Remaining Inventory (MRI): The number of months it would take to sell out the current active inventory at the recent rate of sales. A balance point between supply and demand is considered to be around 6 months, so MRI below 6 months indicates more of a sellers market and MRI above 6 months indicates more of a buyers market.
