West Hawaii Real Estate Market Update – November 2021

Is the market still on fire? Are buyers pulling out of the market?

You can watch Lance Owens, incoming President for the West Hawaii Association of Realtors, and Realtor with LUVA Real Estate who shares insights and the sales statistics for West Hawaii and the current real estate market on our latest video!

So, yes, the market is still hot, but would be hotter if there were more homes for sale. Inventory is still super low. Some buyers I have been in touch with are pulling out of the market and deciding to wait and see what happens. National real estate experts are saying that the market for the US will continue to be strong through the end of the year and into early next year.
