Number Crunching: February Honolulu Real Estate Stats


The Honolulu Board of Realtors released the Honolulu resale figures for February, and condo sales were a bright spot. After months of steady, plateau-like numbers, condos are on the upswing, with 295 sales last month, a 20-percent increase from the previous year. The median sales price for condos, meanwhile, came in at $320,000, a seven percent increase from Feb. 2010. Single-family home resales were not as robust, though they didn’t lose any ground, either. Last month, 181 single-family home sales closed, a moderate increase of just over 2 percent from February 2010. The median sales price logged in at $570,000, a decrease of about 1 percent. The days-on-market indicators show that sales closed at a more sluggish pace last month compared to a year ago. Single-family homes remained on the market for 58 days, up from 38; condos also lingered on the market for 58 days, up from 51.
