As the COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the way people are living and working, it is having profound effects on the local real estate market. The Cape Cod Commission is collaborating with the UMass Donahue Institute and the Center for Public Opinion at UMass Lowell on a 2021 Cape Cod New Homeowner Survey. The survey was designed to better understand homeowners' decisions to purchase a home on the Cape in the past year, as well as near- and long-term plans for the use of their newly purchased home. The survey builds off of the Commission's past survey efforts for Cape Cod Second Homeowners

People who purchased a home on Cape Cod between April 2020 and May 2021 may receive a postcard in the mail requesting their response to the online survey. If you have any questions about the survey, please email
