Douglas Elliman Releases Q2 2017 Hamptons, North Fork and Long Island Sales Market Reports

Hamptons Shows Sales Uptick with Slide in Inventory

Long Island Continues to Boom with Heavy Sales, Rising Prices, Low Inventory

New York, NY (July 27, 2017) -- Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the largest brokerage in the New York Metropolitan area and the fourth largest residential real estate company nationwide, today releases the second quarter 2017 Hamptons, North Fork and Long Island Sales Market Reports. All three markets improved substantially, with the Hamptons and North Fork showing an uptick in sales, with a declining inventory and a very strong Long Island Market with heavy sales volume, rising prices and low inventory.

“Sales activity in the Hamptons has been quite robust after a somewhat lackluster two years, along with a continued decline in inventory. What’s most interesting is that we are seeing more sales at the upper end of the market, something that was lacking last year,” said Scott Durkin ,COO, Douglas Elliman.  

“The North Fork showed a similar pattern.  Both markets had noticeable improvement.”

“After an underperforming 2016, the first two quarters of 2017 showed a pronounced increase in activity in the Hamptons, with sales at their highest levels in two years,” said Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel, Inc, the author of the report. 

“The North Fork mirrored the Hamptons, with the number of sales rising year over year for the fourth time in five quarters. Inventory slipped in both markets, as price indicators moved higher. At the same time, the Long Island market to the west saw rising sales and falling inventory for an unprecedented ten consecutive quarters and the least negotiability in twelve years.”

“We’re experiencing extremely heavy sales, rising prices and low inventory here on Long Island,” echoed Ann Conroy, President, Long Island Division, Douglas Elliman.  “With intense sales volume burning off supply faster than it can be created, prices are rising. There’s no question that the Long Island market is booming!”
