2012 is fast drawing to a close and with it a year of substantial improvement in the Hamptons real estate market.
Here is an interesting metric that might provide some indication as to how the 2013 summer rental season could develop…web traffic to over the last 30 days, compared to the same period last year, is up a very significant 38.5%. Page views are also up by nearly ten percent.
The increase in web traffic has translated into a greater lead flow compared to last year, with more closed deals as a result.
Traditionally President’s Weekend in February marked the start of the Hamptons rental season. No more. The internet has changed that.
While we can’t give you a reason for the increased traffic it’s possible that people who have historically rented in areas that have been touched by Hurricane Sandy are looking to the Hamptons as an alternative destination in 2013.
