Go big or go home, so they say. And to get a house to go to out East, you'll need to dig deep. According to a report from Douglas Elliman, the average sales price in the Hamptons soared 46% in the quarter to just over $2 million, with a median sales price jumping from 40% to $1.2 million, making it higher than Manhattan’s median sales price of $1.1 million. In short, you'll need beaucoup bucks to set up residence out East. The seriously depleted inventory that remains ranges from $1 million to "you've got to be kidding" and here are our top picks in the $1 million, 10 million, and 50 million categories.
