Cape Cod real estate prices have ballooned amidst a housing boom that is forcing buyers across all categories to scramble and angle in any way to win bidding wars. According to Zillow, the median home price on the Cape increased by nearly 20 percent between 2020 and 2021. These trends are making it increasingly difficult and in many cases impossible for working people who make the Cape's visitor economy function to find housing.
But any prospective buyers for this Osterville property and many other real estate treasures on Cape Cod would have to be in one of the most exclusive financial categories. The estimated monthly mortgage payment is nearly $150,000 per MONTH.
As of March 29, 2022 the Osterville home had been on the market for 2 1/2 months.
