Analysis: The volume of single-family homes and condos sold in Mauna Lani Resort have both increased in Q1 of 2018 over the steady pace of quarterly sales in 2017. In the condo market, this has accelerated the march out of a Balanced Market towards a Sellers’ Market. Although the single-family home market is still in Buyer Market territory, if the increase in sales we saw in Q1 continues, we will be in a Balanced Market by mid-2018.
