Hamptons Real Estate Prices Continue To Rise This Summer

By Adrianna Nava - June 26, 2021

New listings that came on the market increased slightly in May compared to April and have been on an upward trend since the beginning of the year. The number of contracts signed declined between April and May and have been trending toward normal market levels since February. Yet, even with this shift in market activity, and with overall market supply marginally decreasing, prices continue to increase going into the Hamptons summer season.

The median sold price in May 2021 saw a 29% increase to $2.425M over May 2020’s $1,878,750, and a 14% increase over April 2021’s $2,106,250. 

From March through May, contract activity on properties in the middle price points, $1.5-9.99M remained relatively steady, while $10M+ properties experienced an increase in contract activity, and properties priced less than $1.5M showed a marginal decline. But even within price points, there were variations in price performance and trends. The results were a reflection of the original listing price placed against supply levels in each segment of this Hamptons real estate market.

The market shift leading into summer impacted areas, price points and individual listings differently. The more opportunity a property provided, whether from a location or amenity standpoint, or both, increasingly mattered when compared to the 2020 emotional rush on real property. 

Price positioning measured against supply in a property’s area and price point will determine whether properties continue to see bidding wars through summer, or if liquidity will begin to slow as buyers, most of whom are already settled on their summer plans, wait and see what happens.
