Cape Cod Second Homeowners - Technical Report of 2017 Survey Findings

Produced for the Cape Cod Commission

The University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute surveyed a random sample of 6,448 second homeowners on Cape Cod for the Cape Cod Commission in the spring of 2017. Twenty percent of those surveyed responded (n=1,293). 

This survey research is a follow-up to a 2008 study conducted to understand how second homes were being used, how they might be used in the future, and how second homeowners participate in the local economy. The 2017 study broadens the scope of the 2008 study to include information related to the potential impacts of environmental factors on second homeownership. The findings of this research will inform economic development and land-use planning across Cape Cod. Survey findings are reported for the Cape as a whole and by four Cape sub-regions: the Upper Cape, Mid Cape, Lower Cape, and Outer Cape.
