Ewa Beach Home Sales Statistics (Ewa by Gentry and Ocean Pointe)

I compiled the following Ewa Beach home sales statistics for Ewa by Gentry and Ocean Pointe.   These statistics were valid as of Sep 30, 2011.

The homes in Ewa by Gentry neighborhoods are just as desirable as or even more desirable than many other neighborhoods on the island of Oahu.  When a property comes on the market in a Ewa by Gentry community, an interested Buyer will make an offer on the property within a few days of listing.  This information is based on the most recent statistics as found on the Honolulu Board of Realtor’s Multiple Listing Service

As long as the property being listed is in decent condition and is priced at or near fair market value, there seem to be Buyer’s waiting in the midst to submit an offer to purchase the homes.  Part of the reason for this is the historically low interest rates that have been hovering anywhere in the 3.75% to 4.25% for a 30 year, fixed rate loan.

Ewa by Gentry neighborhoods have had their fair share of short sales, foreclosures and Homeowners Assistance Program (HAP) sales.  However, regardless of which one of these categories that the homes fall into, there are still many interested Buyer’s waiting on homes to hit the market.

Ewa by Gentry single family home most recent statistics (covering approximately the past 6-8 months)

  • There are currently 39 homes available for sale.  This includes new homes in Haleakea that are listed on the MLS.  Of these 39 homes, 9 of them are listed as short sale and 4 of them are listed as foreclosures or lender sales.
  • There are currently 58 properties that are under contract but have not closed yet.  Of these 58 homes, 37 of them are listed as short sales and 6 of them are listed as foreclosures or lender sales.
  • There have been 93 homes that have sold recently.  Of those 93 homes, 33 of them were short sales and 8 of them were foreclosures or lender sales.

For the sake of comparison, these are the statistics for our neighbors in theOcean Pointe community covering the same 6-8 month time period.

  • There are currently 5 homes available for sale.  Of these 5 homes, 3 of them are listed as short sales.
  • There are currently 19 homes that are under contract but have not closed yet.  Of these 19 homes, 12 of them are listed as short sales and 1 foreclosure or lender sale.
  • There have been 45 homes that have sold recently.  Of these 45 homes, 8 of them were short sales and 6 of them were foreclosures or lender sales.

Given the amount of homes in Ewa by Gentry neighborhoods versus Ocean Pointe neighborhoods, these statistics are very similar.

Ewa Beach Safeway Grocery Store

Ewa Beach, Hawaii is about ready for the long awaited Safeway Grocery Store.  I have reliable sources that tell me the shopping center located at the corner of Ft. Weaver Road and Keaunui Drive in the Ewa by Gentry community will consist of the following:

1.  Safeway Grocery Store

2.  City Mill

3.  Approximately 4 stand-alone eating establishments

4.  Small shops such as a nail salon, barber shop and hair salon.  Of course, there will be more than just these.

The residents of Ewa Beach currently only have 1 grocery store, Foodland, which is located in the Ewa Town Center at the intersection of Ft. Weaver Road and Geiger RoadStar Market in Ewa Beach closed a few years ago and has been replaced with another Longs Drugs.

The Ewa Beach, Ewa by Gentry, Ocean Pointe and Ka Makana at Hoakaleicommunities will greatly benefit from the addition of this new shopping center since the nearest shopping center after Ewa Beach is out in Kapolei.

A good quality sit down restaurant in Ewa Beach would be nice to see in the future but we might have to wait until the restaurants that are proposed to be built on the Hoakalei Resort are finished.  Completion of that probably wont be for another 10 years.

Ewa Makai Middle School Opens in Ewa Beach, Hawaii
