For most of those who have summer rentals in the Hamptons, this weekend marks the official start of the summer. The summer season has begun, with the roads out to East Egg already getting jammed.
But if you totally forgot to set up a summer share, you're in luck. It's not too late. Our friends over at Gridskipper report that there are a lot of properties in the Hamptons still available:
A cursory search this morning on various brokerage websites shows the following rental availability in East Hampton alone: Prudential Douglas Elliman, 1,481 listings; Corcoran, 768 listings; and Brown Harris Stevens, 671 listings. Counting for some overlap, that's still a serious glut.
