WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall On The Story

Real estate agent Jane Gill from Saunders and Associates said she started receiving calls right after Labor Day for people wanting to rent in the Hamptons for the summer of 2012.

“I think it’s a banner year. I really am impressed with how many houses have already been rented. There really (jane gill)”i think it is a banner year i am impressed there is almost nothing left. I have five customers this weekend coming out and it’s has been like that every weekend since Thanksgiving,” she told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall. “Also, because we didn’t have any snow, so we’ve had fairly good weather through the winter, people are more engaged to come out and get it done.”

What is her most expensive rental listing?

“Well, there is one on Dune Road [in Westhampton] and I really can’t reveal the person’s name. But it’s on the ocean, on Dune Road. We have that listing in our office and it’s $1 million for the season,” said Gill.

Gill also said a lot of people are looking to buy in the Hamptons in the near future.

“I put a lot of people in houses this upcoming season who are potential buyers and I didn’t see that the last two or three years,” she said.

    QUESTION: How many of the houses are LEGAL to rent? Do a FOIL request and you’ll find there are only a FEW hundred that have been inspected and have LEGAL Rental Permits. It’s also ILLEGAL to rent on a short-term basis, meaning less than 29 days. Do the real estate agents tell their clients about that?
