Below is an post from curbed boston showing properties in different Cape Cod neighborhoods with asking prices of $250K. Curbed Boston left out our little fishing village of Provincetown. I just had to add it to the list… and with two properties…for an interesting Cape-wide comparison. Again, I apologize for grammar and spelling in the property descriptions. The copy was lifted directly from the blog and from MLS.
These few properties are but a small sampling of those available Cape wide in this price range. Buyers are constantly surprised when we are able to show them delightful and very livable properties in this price range. In Provincetown alone there are 42 properties with asking prices of $300K or less.
Over in Sandwich, at 24 Tabor Road we find a 1,001 sq. ft. two bedroom, two bath ranch. Built in 1975, the updated Forestdale neighborhood property features hardwood floors, an eat-in-kitchen with custom cherry cabinets and new appliances, formal living and dining rooms, radiant heat, air conditioning and a new bathroom. There’s also a lower level family room and home office. Outside, the .24 acre property includes a deck, shed and “great landscaping.”
In Harwich, at 228 Chatham Road, we find an opportunity for some “This Old House” action. The repetitive brokerbabble doesn’t have much to say other than, “RESTORATION OPPORTUNITY. CIRCA 1750 CAPE IS ALL ORIGINAL READY FOR RESTORATION.” Apparently, the photos speak for themselves. The 1,117 sq. ft. antique includes three bedrooms, one bath in eight rooms. In addition, the .94 acre property also includes some sort of out-building (Shed? Garage? Barn?)
Over in East Falmouth, at 804 Old Barnstable Road, we find a three bedroom, two bath with a “surprise inside!” According to the brokerbabble, “A sweeping boudoir Master Bedroom on the 2nd level removes you from a strenuous, hard days work and recaptures what life’s all about,” placing you into a hodgepodge of bathroom trends, from 1980s glass blocks to a vessel sink straight out of the early aughts. There are also two first floor bedrooms, along with a kitchen that “sweeps and opens” to the living room in the 1,110 sq. ft. Cape. The property last sold in March 2008 for $235,900.
