"The home sales market in the Hamptons fell 42%, but many wealthy
Americans and Europeans are still happy to rent... Michael Kaufman,
president of Hamptonsvacations.com, a Web site that markets his
family's 12 East Hampton vacation homes, said the weak dollar
has attracted a flurry of interest from outside the country, especially
among Europeans who see the Hamptons as a bargain compared with
Tuscany or the South of France. The family decided to keep its
asking rents unchanged this year so that they stay affordable
for Americans as well."
