What Constitutes "New Construction" In The Hamptons?

New, 14 comments

Like "recently renovated" and "previously published," the phrase "newly constructed" is one of those buzzy terms that is often used in brokerbabble. A recent listing from Brown Harris Stevens has us wondering just how far the expression can be stretched before it no longer applies. The house pictured above has been on the market since 2009 and, judging by the greying of shingles, doesn't exactly strike us as "new." So...we're throwing this one out to the readers at home. How long can a home be labeled "new construction" without the need for shenanigans to be called? Less than 2 years? 1 year? Six months? Let us know in the comments.
