Pre-foreclosures on Cape Cod (Bourne, MA)

Real Estate Agent with & 9023635

Bourne, Massachusetts is the "gateway" to Cape Cod.  This term used to be the designation for Wareham, but since Route 495 ends at the Bourne Bridge, Bourne has taken on this designation.  Bourne is also the entrance to the Sagamore Bridge, so it has both accesses to the Cape covered.  Some of the areas of Bourne known to the locals and tourists are Sagamore, Bourne, Pocasset, Monument Beach, Otis, and Gray Gables.   Gray Gables became popular when President Grover Cleveland used it as his summer place. 

The Cape Cod Canal runs through Bourne and is the reason there are two bridges to get "on Cape".   Bourne is also the town that the US military uses to make up the Camp Edwards Miltary Base and the Otis Air Force Base.   Edwards is where the Pave Paws early warning radar center is, and Otis is where the jets that tried to intercept the 9-11 planes left from. 

Bourne has a good scallop festival every year in September.  There are lots of scallops to eat and rides to ride.  It is a fun time and it is under tents so it is rain or shine.  Touring the Cape Cod Canal station and learning about all the water traffic that goes through the canal is interesting, too.

Bourne properties made up only a small percentage of the just over 1900 properties in pre-foreclosure stages on Cape Cod on May 6, 2008.  Only 25% of homes in Bourne are second homes.  The 120 properties in Bourne in pre-foreclosure are 1.5% of the bourne residential inventory.  Bourne is South of Wareham and Plymouth and is north of Sandwich and Falmouth.

Here are the breakdowns for Bourne that I have found.  Keep in mind these are PRE-foreclosures (as of 5/6/08) and some will not go to complete foreclosure. 

 Bourne       87
 Sagamore  17
 Otis            0
 Pocasset    16
