Real Estate Talk with Denise Kopasz: Living on Cape Cod

You may never want to leave...

What a paradise Cape Cod is and how fortunate are we to have the National Seashore  Park to keep us in paradise. The National Park along with Conservation and the Cape Cod Commission provide protection against development that would eliminate or diminish our beautiful natural environment.   Preservation restrictions are an important element not only in the National Seashore but in every community and municipality and the restrictions assure future generations will be able to share what we love and cherish.  

If you are thinking of buying a home here on Cape Cod you will need to decide what part of the Cape you want to live on.  We have four parts of the Cape.

  • Outer Cape - Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet and Eastham.
  • Lower Cape- Harwich, Brewster, Chatham and Orleans
  • Mid Cape - Barnstable, Yarmouth and Dennis
  • Upper Cape - Bourne, Falmouth, Sandwich and Mashpee

Your decision might be based on what type of home and the price you are looking for.  The outer Cape is nothing like the Upper Cape and the Upper Cape is nothing like the Lower Cape.  If you want density you will look in the Upper, Mid and Lower Cape, If you want less density and fewer homes more preserved land you will look to the Outer Cape.  If you are looking for a second home to rent you might think of Provincetown or the Outer Cape as tourist love the National Park and also love having the choice of Bay or Ocean.  A town like Provincetown has extended rental weeks and you will find there is always planned community activities that draw renters early Spring right thru till late Fall. You might not be interested in renting your home but you are interested in staying closer to Boston or Providence and that would bring you to the upper Cape. You might want to be in a condo and some towns have restrictions on condos and they do not let you live in them year round.  

No matter what you desire there is a place and home for you here on Cape Cod.  We have a pretty stable market making it a great place to invest also. Historically we do not have the big gains and huge drops and we keep on a nice even growth path.

Don’t feel overwhelmed about having to visit each Town. We have ways to give you a taste / tour of each area without leaving your home. Visit our Raveis Escapes site and take a minute to look at the different Towns here in Cape Cod.  Take a minute to visit Eastham on this site and you will see all the places I can introduce you too with the click of a mouse.
