“There has been a slowdown in luxury home sales but it’s not all doom and gloom.” Says Oahu Luxury Real Estate Agent and LuxuryHomes.com Affiliate, Caron B Davis.
I do believe a lot of that has to do with the continued lack of inventory. I think more properties will come on the market as the year ends and in January as people want to make changes. Of course, we can’t discount the effects of the mortgage rate increases we were seeing this year. However, there was a significant decrease recently so we will keep an eye on that and continue to keep you updated on great programs available.
In October, 24 luxury homes sold at or above $1.8M, a 61.3% decrease from October of 2021. The median price was $2,362,500, a slight decrease compared to last October. Homes sold after an average of on 38 days on market, which is among the fastest DOM on record. Price per square foot was $1,118.14 a significant increase of 20.7% from last year. Homes sold for 99% of their asking price, on average, and 54% of them sold at or above asking price.
