It’s another month of soaring home prices in Honolulu.

Home prices on O‘ahu are poised to finish 2015 at a record high.

 

The median year-to-date price of O‘ahu single-family homes has hit $700,000 for the first time ever, ahead of the annual record of $675,000 set in 2014, according to the latest statistics released by Monday by the Honolulu Board of Realtors.

 

November’s monthly median price was $715,900, which marked the third straight month that prices broke the $700,000 mark, but it was off from the $719,500 in November 2014.

 

“Home sales in November 2015 tracked closely with last year’s figure, which was a landmark month for the industry,” says Jack Legal, president of the board.

 

The monthly prices dipped slightly in November despite sales increasing. There were 246 single-family homes sold last month, up 9.3 percent from the 225 homes that sold a year ago, according to the board.

 

Honolulu condo prices, meanwhile, rose 1.3 percent to a median of $347,500, compared to $343,000 a year ago.

 

For the year, the median condo price was at $360,000, up 2.9 percent from the first 11 months of 2014. The annual record for condos is $350,000, set last year.
