"The increase in sales volume for 2012 indicates that the Hamptons market has stabilized since the recession and is returning to a normal growth cycle," said Peter Turino, president of Brown Harris Stevens of the Hamptons.

"While unlikely to explode with activity, the market is regaining lost momentum as many buyers and investors are willing to purchase at current price levels. This continued steady growth in sales is encouraging," 

 "Like many markets, we experienced a surge of closings in December due to pending tax law changes, however there are still plenty of buyers that are actively looking now. Sale transactions are being done this month during what is normally a quiet time which is additional evidence that this market is turning a corner."
