Big Island Real Estate and Mortgage Market Update – February 2023

What’s happening with the Hawaii Island market? Long and short of rates are sitting at mid 6% with hopes that they will fall later this year.
The housing market is favoring homes that are priced correctly. Homes that are not priced correctly are sitting on the market for over 60 days across the island.
Thanks to our mortgage partners Marla and Scott Wynn, the Wynn and Eagan team for sharing their information on the rates and programs on this update.
