The ever-coveted Hamptons have become even more in demand over the past two years as buyers prioritize space, privacy and comfort during the pandemic. Inventories in the first quarter fell 41.5% year over year, while average prices rose nearly 25%, according to Douglas Elliman.
“Over the past two years I have witnessed unprecedented activity from buyers looking for their piece of the exclusive East End lifestyle,” says Susan Breitenbach of Corcoran. “With a dramatic lack of inventory, 2022 is sure to be an interesting year because one thing hasn’t changed – everyone wants a home in the Hamptons.”
Breitenbach handled sales for Christie Brinkley and recently sold a Bridgehampton resort for nearly $25 million.
