Great Value Hawaii Loa Ridge Luxury Home & Ala Moana Luxury Condo

Good Value Hawaii Loa Ridge Luxury Home & Ala Moana Luxury Condo

Welcome to the most popular section of our monthly Hawaii Damon Blog Great Value Hawaii Luxury Real Estate! Currently most of the luxury home neighborhoods on Oahu are experiencing Buyers Markets (defined as having more than 5 months of inventory currently on the market) with average inventory levels at 15.6 months for Oahu luxury home neighborhoods (see Latest Oahu Hawaii Real Estate Statistics). Prices are decreasing (average sales prices for homes are almost 10% less than original asking prices) making it a great time for Buyers to find good value properties in these neighborhoods. Whether you are an investor searching for a great deal or looking to trade up to a luxury home or condo, now we would be great time to purchase a home in a luxury neighborhood in Hawaii. Most median neighborhoods on Oahu in Hawaii are in extreme Sellers markets (complete opposite from luxury home neighborhoods) with prices rapidly increasing. Selling your home in a median neighborhood and trading-up / buying in a luxury neighborhood would be a wise decision. In this section I will feature Hawaii Luxury Real Estate, both Homes & Condos which I think offer especially great value for potential Buyers.
