Good news-Rates have dropped, according to our mortgage pro, Joe Eagan and he sees better rates in 2024. Home prices are rising in West Hawaii and Hilo, while dropping a bit in Puna. Homes are staying on the market between 30-70 days depending on area (condos in Waikoloa Resort are going fast, homes in East Hawaii are slowest to leave the market).
The Fed sees inflation is holding and the Consumer Price Index has great numbers-meaning we could see better rates in 2024. The group also discussed why we are NOT going to see a housing crash.
