Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawai’i Realty stresses importance of having an agent

Sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Hawai’i Realty

Low inventory and historically low interest rates have placed pressure on the price to rates for housing here on Oahu. Sales prices are well above market prices, tiring out buyers who are waiting for the market to adjust. Sellers are receiving higher prices than they normally would, while buyers are expected to go above the asking price.

If you are interested in selling or purchasing a property, Etsuko Morita Fields, Realtor Associate, recommends getting in contact with an agent as soon as possible. Prices for single family homes and condominiums are increasing, so it’s important to know where you stand within the market.

For sellers, Etsuko says that it’s the perfect time to sell or consider selling your property. You can contact an agent to find out how much your property is going for specifically in your neighborhood. It can be a little scary for buyers considering the markets condition, but Etsuko says that realtor agents are here to help you plan and strategize financially.

“A lot of people are not really aware of what you can afford. Instead, people look at the price tag and say ‘there’s no way we can do this’. It’s really not true,” says Etsuko. If you have any questions or are interested in buying or selling, please visit for more information.
