Seasonal Homes A Majority on the Outer Cape
The 2010 census has determined that the majority of the Outer Cape's homes are seasonal. Overall, Cape Cod's seasonal housing comprises only 35.5% of the total, ranging from 13.6% in Sandwich to over 64% in Truro. The Outer Cape is almost entirely over 50%, where the Mid and Upper Cape are generally under 50%. Of note, the US Census Bureau's information shows that the seasonal home percentage (in Eastham as well as Cape-wide) is up 3.5% from the 2000 census. Eastham is up from 52.3% (2000) to 55.8% (2010).
