In the same quarter last year there were 976 homes sold that compares to this quarter with 943 homes sold. Down 3.4%

There were 1,772 Condo sales in the 1rst Quarter of 2005. This year there have been 1,687 sales. Down 4.8%.

The Median Sales Price is $625,000 compared to $529, 100 last year.

Carla Young, a Leeward Realtor showing homes in Aiea today, says she has seen signs the market is slowing and some developers have even lowered their prices.
