1. East Falmouth

Copy Link
33 Dodson Way
East Falmouth, MA 02536
Kicking off with new construction by way of the Waquoit neighborhood. Asking price for the 3BD, 3BA on 1.18 acres is $475,900.

2. Mashpee

Copy Link
16 Meadowbrook Road
Mashpee, MA 02649
This 2,452-square-foot Colonial has been bouncing on and off the market since July 2012 when it debuted with a $499K asking price. The listing reappeared in May of this year looking for $475,900 and is now in contract.

3. Centerville

Copy Link
138 South Main Street
Centerville, MA 02632
Here's a newly remodeled 3BD, 2.5BA Cape that last sold in January 2013 for $215K. After a full nip/tuck, the 1,846-square-footer was flipped back onto the market looking for $549K. As the brokerbabble explains, "The high end finishes, and amenities added to this home are ones typically found in million dollar properties." Alas, the PriceChopper was unimpressed and the place can now be had for $475K.

4. South Yarmouth

Copy Link
38 Harbor Hill Run
South Yarmouth, MA 02664
What can you do from this 3BD, 2.5BA ranch on Bass River? "Take a stroll to your association beach or cruise up to the association dock on your boat." All that for $475K.

5. Harwich

Copy Link
51 Parallel Street
Harwich, MA 02645
"Circa 1850...This well-proportioned, spacious antique Cape is handicap accessible and has multiple layers of historic detail preserved in each of its 8 rooms which feature wide plank floors, spackle painted wood floors, hand carved mantle, raised paneling and original moldings." Oh, and there's an in-ground pool with a ramp. Yours for $473,900.

6. Chatham

Copy Link
347 Orleans Road
North Chatham, MA 02650
The brokerbabble for this listing seems to have been typed on a broken flip phone, but here's what we've gathered: the spread is commercially zoned and includes a 3BD home, a separate retail shop, and two-car garage on .73 acres. Asking price is $475K.

7. Eastham

Copy Link
160 Nauset Light Beach Road
Eastham, MA 02642
Whales, sharks, and Henry Beston are all featured in the brokerbabble for this 2BR, 1BA. So there's that. Regardless, the 732-square-footer in "the shadow of Nauset Lighthouse" sits on .66 acres, comes with stunning views and is yours for $475K.

8. Truro

Copy Link
556 Shore Road
Provincetown, MA 02657
Finally, to Truro. "Located at Shoreline Beach Condominium, a newly renovated complex comprised of 13 units in 2 buildings, this light and bright 2 bedroom, 2nd floor end unit has expansive water views." The 810-square-footer is asking $472,900.
