Before we make with this week's coverage of all things real estate in the Hamptons, let's take a look back at the week that was. As usual, Curbed readers weren't exactly shy when it came to voicing their opinions. Here's just a sampling of what they had to say.
THE PHOTOS, THEY NEED WORK: "I can't tell you how many agents are now photoshopping their listings to the point where they all look like the same dumb cartoon. The last one like that that I visited was really a mold infested teardown that looked great in the doctored to death photos."
HOW LOW WILL THIS ASK GO?: "It's the East End, not Tuscany. If it doesn't have cedar shingle siding (and preferrably a cedar shingle roof) it isn't going to sell."
ANDERSON, YOU SLY DOG: "Smart move. If I had that kind of money, I'd be my own neighbor too. Anderson seems to be very savvy about getting good deals on property."
WE WERE EXPECTING MORE FROM YOU: "At the prices she's charging for her dresses (for women of a certain age), I would have thought she could afford a nicer home/location. Jeesh."
THE "LEGS" CAN STAY PUT: "The 'Legs' don't hurt anyone, they're controversial only to the degree that [the board] makes them so. Otherwise, who do they bother? On the contrary, an interesting item of sculptural art which is an asset to the community."
