Yes it is true
Each town on the Cape has several distinct Villages. The town of Barnstable has some of the most affordable homes here- especially the villages of Hyannis & Centerville.
Our taxes are that low and with good services too.
We do not have town waste removal though. Some towns do have town water or sewers.
Fewer school kids in many towns keep taxes low.
My family from N.J. all have bought homes here. It is a good time to buy.
Each town has a website with lots of good info on taxes. We have an alleged 100% valuation system
I can trace the tax assessement history on any specific property for you. I find that zipskinny website may have good demographic info for you.
