The rate of real estate sales on the North Fork has increased to the point that available inventory can no longer meet demand.

That’s the key takeaway of the fourth-quarter results released last Thursday by Manhattan appraisal firm Miller Samuel and brokerage Douglas Elliman, said Miller Samuel president Jonathan Miller.

“The supply is trying to normalize,” Mr. Miller said. “It’s still not, but it’s better for consumers than it was a year ago.”

At the end of 2013, there were 455 houses on the market on the North Fork — from Aquebogue to Orient — according to the report. Points farther west weren’t included in the analysis. By the end of 2014, that number increased — albeit modestly — to 521 available homes. Meanwhile, residential sales in 2014 jumped a significant 34 percent from the same time the previous year — from 556 to 685. (more…)

Built in 1899 to replace Stirling Hall, which had burned down earlier that year, the opera house was “the pinnacle of the village,” said Greenport historian Carlos DeJesus.
