Summer rentals in the Hamptons are the most expensive in Water Mill, Sagaponack

Hampton Bays is at the tail end of the charts

If you’re looking to rent on the East End for the summer, price is likely one of the deciding factors for you. If you are looking to save some money, it looks like the towns to avoid are Water Mill, Sagaponack, and Bridgehampton. According to data assembled by Out East, the three are the priciest Hamptons towns to rent in for the summer season.

All prices listed are the median asking rents for the rental period between Memorial Day and Labor Day—not by month. In addition, this data is based on what’s currently available for rent on Out East, so we’ll be checking in to see how the data changes later on in the summer.

Water Mill topped the charts with a massive median rental price of $125,000, while close behind that, Sagaponack’s median cost for a summer rental is $120,000.

Bridgehampton followed the two towns and a $100,000 price tag for the summer, while North Haven and Quogue came close in the fourth and fifth places, with rents of $88,000 and $84,000, respectively.

We were the most surprised to see East Moriches and East Hampton coming in with a tie of $60,000, while Amagansett and Southampton tied with $70,000.

If most of the towns look too expensive but you still want to be close to the East End beaches and shops, Hampton Bays is best option as the least expensive Hamptons town to rent in, with a median of $40,000 for the summer season.

For the North Fork, Greenport was actually at the tail end of the list, which we were surprised to see given its village nightlife, beaches, and laid-back culture.
