2022 Cape Cod Real Estate Market in review | Chatelain Real Estate

The Cape Cod Real Estate market closed out 2022 continuing the trend of higher prices and lower inventory that has played out over the last decade.

Cape Cod Market Update September 2022

Market Update

August Review: 

  The Cape Cod real estate market remains low on inventory and high on confusion.  We have been inundated these last weeks with requests for a quick look into our crystal ball and an idea about when the top, or bottom, of the market will be.  Unfortunately our crystal ball only reliably predicts the next day of the week.  The [...]
