49 Honolulu Home Neighborhoods:
Price / Ft²

This page ranks Honolulu’s single-family home neighborhoods by price / ft² and also includes median land & house size for each neighborhood. We have a similar page for Honolulu condos, which you can see right here.

 

The data on this page is automatically updated once per day (just before 7am - Hawaii time - to be exact), keeping the results relevant and current. It is organized by the most expensive single-family home neighborhoods listed at the top. If you want to understand our methodology and how we came up with the results, then click here to read on.

 


Background
Getting a sense how expensive a given neighborhood is relative to other neighborhoods can be helpful in assessing overall values within a neighborhood and, on another level, it is additional insight that may help shape one’s understanding and opinion of a neighborhood. We therefore decided to put this list together, calculating price / ft² of all Honolulu’s single-family home neighborhoods. We also included the median land and house size for each neighborhood.

 

Note: The findings are not meant to be helpful in determining a fair market value of a specific house. Why? Because there can be significant spreads in price / ft² for different houses within the same neighborhood. For instance, some houses with spectacular ocean views or significant upgrades may sell for much higher price / ft² relative to homes without ocean views or upgrades.

 


Price / Ft² Formula
  1. We take the average price / ft² of all homes sold in a neighborhood over the past 1 year (365 days).
     
  2. We take the median price / ft² of all listings in a given neighborhood that are active and in escrow (under contract).
    Median is the middle point of a sample size and it reduces the impact an overpriced unit can have on skewing results.

     

    Example
    A single-family home neighborhood has 5 listings that are either active or in escrow, with the following listing prices: $1.4M, 1.8M, 1.9M, $2.0M, $5.4M.
    The median listing price is $1,900,000 (the middle point), whereas the average listing price is $2,500,000.
     
  3. We place ⅔ weight on sold homes and ⅓ weight on active and in escrow listings.
    In other words, we believe, in more cases than not, sold prices do a 'better job' at depicting current market values than active and in escrow listings.

     

    Example
    1 year of sold homes, average price / ft² = $900.
    Current active & in escrow listings, median price / ft² = $1,200.
    Price / ft² = $1,000. Calculated as {(2 x $900) + $1,200} / 3.
PS! If a neighborhood does not have a single data point based on our approach - that means, a neighborhood does not have a single home that is either active, in escrow or sold within the past 1 year - then you will see the writing “No data” below the neighborhood name. 

 

Calculation Limitations
No matter the approach, there are limitations in calculating the most reasonable or ‘fair’ price / ft² for any given neighborhood:
 
  1. Sold data: Is prices actually paid, great! However, if the market has moved since such sales - up or down - the data becomes less relevant.
     
  2. Active & in escrow listings: If homes are listed at prices higher than market values, which is not uncommon, the data becomes less relevant.
     
  3. Limited data points: If a neighborhood only has a few data points or even a total lack or either active listings or sold data, the significance of our results may become less relevant.
     
House Size Formula
Each neighborhood has a line called “Homes” and that represents the median interior house size for such neighborhood. Our results are derived from using all listings that are active and in escrow as well as sold homes, until we have a total of 50 data points, although the maximum we go back in time to collect data, based on sold homes, is 10 years, even if we don't reach a total of 50 data points. 

 

Example 1
A neighborhood has 7 active listings, 4 in escrow and 17 homes that have sold within the past 10 years. We use the size of these 28 homes to calculate the median house size for the neighborhood.

 

Example 2
B neighborhood has 9 active listings, 7 in escrow and within the past 10 years 72 homes have sold. 88 homes (9 + 7 + 72) is more than the 50 max data points we use and we therefore only use the 34 most recently sold homes so we get to a total of 50 data points (9 + 7 + 34).

 


Land Size Formula
For each neighborhood we have a line called “Land” and that represents the median land size for such neighborhood. Just like the 'House Size Formula', the results are derived from using all listings that are active and In escrow as well as sold homes, until we have a total of 50 data points, although the maximum we go back in time to collect data, based on sold homes, is 10 years, even if we don't reach a total of 50 data points.
