Cape Cod's Ten Least Expensive Waterfront Listings

View as Map

The recent trio of winter storms probably isn't enough to diminish any desire for beachfront digs. Hence, we dug into the listings to find the cheapest homes on the water, excluding cranberry bogs and cement ponds, currently available. Asking $174,900 to $319,000, Cape Cod's ten least expensive waterfront listings sit on the shores of rivers, ponds and lakes - conveniently avoiding oceanfront problems (and price tags). Although some properties on our map are condominiums, they're all detached units with their own four walls and a roof.
