Provincetown – The Three Highest Priced Homes For Sale


The Provincetown high end is as diverse as the town itself. These homes represent lovely family homes and compounds that just happen to have one of the best locations in the world – on the water in Provincetown! These three homes represent the best of Provincetown: a classic waterfront home, a mini- waterfront compound, and an oversized gatehouse to a famous estate. Last week I featured a post on the three highest priced homes for sale in Truro.

There are only 17 single family properties on the market in Provincetown vs 60 in Truro.  Of those 17  only 6 are priced below $1M. The average asking price is $1.493M. Last year at this time there were 18 homes on the market with only 3 priced below $1M. These numbers illustrate the historic low inventory levels we are experiencing in Provincetown.

46 single family homes have sold year to date with an average sales price of $1.356M. 50 have sold in Truro year to date.
