What $500K Can Buy You Around The Cape & Islands

It's time once again for Curbed Comparisons, where we break down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, listings for $500,000.


? We begin in Provincetown with a 1BR, 1BA water view condo. This 465 sq. ft. Harborfront Landing penthouse features oak flooring, a chef's kitchen with Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, a private deck overlooking Provincetown Harbor, and a common beachside outdoor shower. The complex was built in 2012 "with the latest hurricane standard construction" - always a bonus for waterfront property - and permits weekly rentals (cha-ching) as well as pets for owners. Yours for $499K.


? There's a House Hunters International vibe going on in this Brewster 3BR, 1BA. Built in 1940, the 856 sq. ft. cottage features a mix of knotty pine and brightly painted cinderblock walls, an 8x24 enclosed porch, and an outdoor shower. The .7 acre property abuts conservation land and is close to both Saints Landing and New Beach. The listing hit the market in October 2011 for $539K, but a February 2012 visit from the pricechopper brought the ask down to $499K.


? Here's a "charming antique" Sandwich 3BR, 2BA with village walkability. The 2,318 sq. ft. residence was built in 1849 and sits on .2 acres. The property last sold in June 2009 for $326,400 and hit the market later that same month for $329,000. Huh? Anyway, the listing was removed in August and now, almost four years later, the property has hit the market once again with a much higher $499,900 price tag.


? Not surprisingly, pricey Nantucket doesn't offer too much bang for the buck when it comes to half a mil. This mid-island 2BR, 3BA condo features 1,576 sq. ft. plus an unfinished basement "that could be converted into usable/livable space." The property last changed hands in July 2008 for $495K and returned to market in April 2012 asking $489K. The pricechopper stopped by in June, slicing the ask down to $475K, where it remains.


? Ferrying over to the Vineyard's Edgartown does offer more bang for the buck when it comes to half a mil. This 4BR, 2BA sits on one acre and abuts conservation land and walking trails. The 1,792 sq. ft. home was built in 1972 and features multiple decks, plus a front-to-back screened porch. Yours for $495K.
