The first 6 months of 2014 was an impressive up tick compared to last year. 11 of the 12 markets monitored by
TOWN & COUNTRY saw increases in the Number of Home Sales with only Montauk experiencing a dip of 15% from 62 home sales in 2013 to 53 in 2014 first half of the year. Having boots on the ground, our Montauk office reports this dip is solely due to a lack of inventory and does not reflect decrease in demand.
Four specific markets increased by 50% or more… Southampton Village, Sag Harbor Village, Sag Harbor Area (which includes Noyack and North Haven) and Hampton Bays. Amagansett checked in with a 42% jump in Number of Home Sales – an honorable mention. East Hampton Area (which includes Wainscott) posted 189 home sales in the first 6 months which is in line with last year’s 188, and still the most of any market.
9 of 12 of the individual markets realized gains in Total Home Sales Volume, as well as Median Home Sales Price.
