TOWN & COUNTRY HAMPTONS 4th QUARTER 2015 HOME SALES REPORT

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

This 4th Quarter TOWN & COUNTRY HOME SALES REPORT is one of the most interesting compilation of factors in the nearly three decades I’ve been reporting on market statistics. Tons of moving parts.

First, let’s examine the obvious… the last 3 months of 2015 were not banner months for trades. In fact, 10 of the 12 markets monitored by TOWN & COUNTRY saw declines — some quite significant — with the greatest statistical drop in Amagansett at 46%.

Next reviewing the Total Home Sales Volumes and the bleeding gets worse with 12 of the 12 markets we watch closely experiencing declines. Southampton Village got pummeled with a 67% plummet in Total Home Sales Volume from $222M in 4th Quarter 2014 to $74M in 4th Quarter 2015. But fret not, this is primarily due to four huge sales in 2014 all over $30M, that pushed the Total Home Sales Volume to rare heights.

The beacon of the three criteria monitored by TOWN & COUNTRY is the Median Homes Sales Price. 7 of the 12 markets saw increases, with many being significant increases. The Bridgehampton Market (which includes Water Mill and Sagaponack) shot up 38% from $2.87M in 4th Quarter 2014 to $3.95M in 4th Quarter 2015. Only East Hampton Village topped that Median Homes Sales Price slightly, with $3.995M.

As we predicted, the price range suffering the most was the high end. The $20M+ and up price range sunk 64% from 11 sales in the 4 in the 4th quarter 2015. This is a direct result of the pull back on Wall Street, since that’s the demographic of the buyer at that elite level.

TOWN & COUNTRY monitors specific price ranges within each market. 7 of the 8 saw declines. One surprise is the $5 – $9.9M category which closed 2 more sales, from 25 to 27 home sales, therefore increased 8%.

A glance at All Hamptons Markets Combined and the picture comes into full focus. During the last 3 months of 2015 the Hamptons Home Sales experienced a pull back.

Gracious Thanksgiving: Top 4 Hamptons & North Fork Kitchens

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Southampton Kitchen

Thanksgiving is truly a special day that kicks off the holiday entertaining season. It is a time to celebrate family and friends while focusing on being thankful and generous to others. Nothing says Thanksgiving more than friends and family gathered around a decadent table laden with roasted turkey, savory stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course, pumpkin pie. Those familiar with hosting a holiday dinner know that there is a great deal preparation to prepare for a lavish meal. A key ingredient for successful holiday entertaining is a well-planned kitchen.  Just like in real estate, location is everything be it a house on the water or the Viking range and Sub Zero refrigerator.  These are some of our favorite spots to whip up something delicious and toast the season here in the Hamptons and across the North Fork of Long Island.

East Hampton KitchenIn Southampton this stately home has that understated elegance you’d expect in the Hamptons.  Located close to both the town and beach, this home is ideal for stylish entertaining. The gracious open kitchen is adorned with the world's finest appliances from Sub-Zero and Miele.  The adjoining breakfast room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling sliding French doors that let in the light just perfectly.  For details contact Robert Tomich, Town & Country Real Estate, Southampton Office, 631-283-5800, IN#36553.

The natural light and white cabinets are chic and sophisticated in this East Hampton kitchen. State of the art stainless steel appliances and a double refrigerator that can hold everything you need for a large holiday dinner are why it is a stand out. The center island is a perfect spot for entertaining while cooking up a scrumptious meal. A key ingredient in any great kitchen is having enough work space and ample storage, this kitchen has it all and more.  For details contact Pamela Walsh, Town & Country Real Estate, Bridgehampton, 631-537-3200, IN#16713.

Quiogue KitchenThis quaint eat-in-kitchen in Quiogue uses its space wisely. A bookcase located on the end of the counter top is perfect for quick access to those favorite holiday recipes and cookbooks. Plenty of cabinets below the counter hide pots and pans while glass cabinets showcase favorite items and create an open feel.  This room flows gracefully in a circular shape with two sinks and extended stovetop, the possibilities are endless. The crown molding and cabinetry in this French Country kitchen lend elegant detailing.   For details contact Christine M. Byrne, Town & Country Real Estate, Westhampton, 631-288-3030, IN#35922.

Who doesn’t love a new kitchen? 

East Hampton Kitchen We found a perfect spot to prep and entertain in this new construction in East Hampton.  The eat-in gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line Wolf range has a large center island ideal for hosting a holiday.  Bring up a few bottles from the wine cellar and transform the island into a chic bar for cocktails.  Two fireplaces and 5 bedrooms, as well as a finished lower level, mean there is room for quite the gathering.  For details contact Tracy Annacone, Town & Country Real Estate, East Hampton Office, 631-324-8080, IN#50443

When the cook is happy that same love and gratitude is reflected in the food and the mood and that truly what Thanksgiving is about. We appreciate these gorgeous kitchens that are overflowing with charm and chic style.  From everyone at Town & Country Real Estate we wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.

The East End is Awash in Pink Bows!

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

The East End is awash in pink bows. From Westhampton Beach to Montauk, our main streets are heralding the arrival of breast cancer awareness month thanks to volunteers from the Coalition of Women's Cancers at Southampton Hospital. If you look closely in shop windows, you will also see the Coalition's multi colored ribbons. The Coalition is a local charity that provides services for East End women battling breast, ovarian and uterine cancers. All monies raised stay local and make a difference in the lives of these brave women and their families. If you are inclined to donate this month, think local! In addition to the Coalition for Women's Cancers, the East End has other wonderful organizations that help those with cancer, including Lucia's Angels and Fighting Chance.

According to statistics from breast cancer.org, about 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. 85% who develop the disease have no family history of breast cancer. There are currently 2.8 million women worldwide who are surviving breast cancer today. Awareness of the disease has led to earlier detection and better survival rates.

Many thanks to the Coalition's volunteers in painting our beautiful villages and hamlets pink to raise awareness this October!

Creating and sustaining a supportive network in our community for women affected by breast, ovarian, and uterine cancers. The CWC focuses on education, early detection and empowerment to bring about better health care and improved quality of life.

This is a federal award from EPA’s Region 2 office, which includes New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico & the US Virgin Island. Quite an honor!

Town & Country extends congratulations to Southampton Village for forging the path to smaller carbon foot prints by all.
Two years ago the village was the first to ban plastic shopping bags that clog our landfills, fly with the wind and litter our beautiful areas
Not to mention the additional pollutions when recycled!
Now the Department of Environmental Conservation honored Southampton Village with their annual Excellence Award.
The volunteer group known as Southampton Advocates for the Village Environment or SAVE were behind the movement..
