It Happened One Weekend: Hamptons Chatter Begins

1) Some gigantoid Hamptons home sales last year sent median sales prices skyrocketing, but the amount of homes actually being sold is way down. [NYTimes]
2) Maybe that's because everyone is renting. Bidding wars over Hamptons rentals? Blame it on the preggos. [NYPost]
3) No matter what's going on with the market, the high end will always maintain a constant level of action. At the end of January there were 13 co-ops in contract at $10 million or more, including six for over $20 million. At the same time last year there were 16 co-ops in contract for $10 million or more, with three over $20 million. [William Neuman/Big Deal]
4) Married couple/successful actors David Alan Basche and Alysia Reiner (right) spent two years on the housing hunt, seeing over 100 places, before snagging a good deal on the shell of a Harlem brownstone. Too bad they ruin the good will we feel towards them by saying they're renovating with an eye on "warm Zen eco-modernism." [Joyce Cohen/The Hunt]
5) You know what sounds like a totally awesome fun time? A real estate cruise, that's what! [NYTimes]
