Every Week, Curbed Comparisons breaks down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, properties listed for $250,000.
Let's begin in Wellfleet, at 420 Chequessett Neck Road, with a 352 sq. ft. cottage built in 1945. Located in Chequessett Village with a stoner-friendly address, the property has been renovated "to the studs." The two bedroom, one bath is fully insulated and includes two new skylights, energy efficient heat, wood flooring, Corian counters in the kitchen and bath, and a rear deck. The condo first hit the market in March with an asking price of $275,000. Three pricechops have brought the listing down to $250,000.

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.

Now to West Yarmouth, at 5 Alijo Drive, where we find a three bedroom, one and a half bath that the brokerbabble assures, "THIS ones for you!!!!" The 1,194 sq. ft. remodeled ranch last sold in July for $170K. The listing hit the market in August asking $279K and has since met with the pricechopper five times, so this is clearly a flip. Built in 1985, the updated property features hardwood floors, a fireplaced living room, granite/stainless kitchen, a two-car garage, a a screened porch. The half acre lot abuts conservation land and "This home truly shines!!!"
