Housing in Provincetown

"Loss of Year-Round Population Provincetown is fighting to maintain its viability as a vibrant, year-round community amid some powerful trends that threaten to reshape it into an exclusive summer resort. Housing prices have more than doubled in the last 11 years, with the median price jumping to $1.3 million during the first four months of 2016 compared to $625,000 during the same period in 2005, according to The Warren Group, publisher of Banker & Tradesman. Higher prices, in turn, have weighed heavily on middle and lower-income families that have traditionally been the backbone of the year-round workforce, compelling many to leave.
Provincetown’s year-round population fell more than 17 percent from 2000 to 2010, dropping to 2,642 from nearly 3,200 at the turn of the century. The number of restaurants and other businesses open through the year has fallen off, while school enrollment has shrunk."
