Luxury Home Sold

A beautiful luxury home just sold to a California couple, and it is unquestionably one of the great luxury homes on the Olympic Peninsula. It is 3,600 square feet on one very private treed lot, with a modern kitchen and even a swimming pool to stay in shape.

Luxury Home

Luxury Home With Pool

Couples moving to the North Olympic Peninsula from Port Townsend to Port Angeles are searching for the home where they plan to spend their best retirement years. But most couples are not looking for a large home or an expensive luxury home. On the other hand, there are some couples who enjoy entertaining and having friends over to enjoy good food and a glass of wine, and this home is definitely designed for comfort and entertainment.

Luxury Home Privacy

Many couples looking for a luxury home want some sense of privacy, and while that doesn’t mean no other homes are visible, it does mean they want to be able to walk around in their homes and on their properties without being seen by neighbors. This home certainly provided the trees and vegetative screens to provide a very private setting.

What a beautiful property and home. I had the pleasure of representing the buyers of this gorgeous luxury home.

Washington Luxury Homes

Washington luxury homes are some of the most extraordinary deals in this market anywhere in the United States, but luxury homes in Washington and on the Olympic Peninsula seem to be the best kept secret.  Billionaires and millionaires have been busy buying luxury homes around some of the elite areas of the country, and wealthy investors are buying homes by the dozen in Las Vegas and in key locations in Arizona.

Washington Luxury Homes Best Kept Secret

Washington Luxury Homes

The super wealthy International buyers are snapping up mansions in the U.S. at bargain prices with the market down and with the U.S. dollar down.  Internet investor Yuri Milner paid $100 million for a Northern California mansion recently, and other foreign billionaires are buying mansions in Florida.  “International buyers purchased an estimated $82 billion worth of U.S. homes in the 12 months ended on Mar. 31, a 24 percent increase from the previous 12 months, the National Association of Realtors reported in May.”  [See Russians Prop Up Luxury Housing Market]

Washington Luxury Homes Demand is Very Low

The Olympic Peninsula and the Sequim area, including Sequim Bay, Discovery Bay, and around the Strait of Juan de Fuca, are relatively unknown areas for the super wealthy.  This means that the demand for Washington luxury homes is low around the Strait and a gorgeous water front or water view home can be bought at the lowest prices in decades.  While this is unfortunate for sellers who are now taking a loss on the sale of their Washington luxury home, it is definitely the find of a lifetime for the buyer who can afford to buy a luxury home now.

Castle For Sale: Chateau de Farcheville

Billionaires are having garage sales, like this one.   The ex-wife of billionaire Timothy Blixseth is hoping to raise some cash by selling her little castle known as the Chateau de Farcheville located outside of Paris.   The price is what you might expect with a real estate castle market that has dipped somewhat below the water level of the moats, $57 million. But wait, look at what you get.   The residence was built in 2004.   Excuse me, I meant the residence was built in 1304.   Of course, it comes with a moat, personal hunting grounds, 15 bedrooms, 1,000 acres and a helicopter pad.

Should you like to make an offer on this castle, I would love to be your buyer’s agent.   Wouldn’t that be a nice commission?   In the present market, no castles are up for sale in the Sequim or Port Angeles areas.   If you are in the market, by all means, let me know.

Sequim and Port Angeles homes for sale in the upper price ranges, say above $500,000, are almost impossible to sell right now.   Why?   There are two major reasons.

Reason No. 1.   In Sequim, and even more so in Port Angeles, the percentage of buyers represented in this price range above $500,000 is only about 2% of all buyers in the current market, depending on what week or month you analyze.   Generally, over 80% of homes sold here are in the $200,000 to $300,000 price range. Here are the sales for Sequim and Port Angeles in December, 2008 (as of yesterday 12/22/08):

City Sold Price Days On Market
Sequim $169,950.00 146
Sequim $185,000.00 118
Sequim $200,000.00 17
Sequim $230,000.00 413
Sequim $240,000.00 167
Sequim $255,000.00 141
Sequim $269,000.00 13
Sequim $314,900.00 175
Sequim $350,000.00 92
Sequim $743,000.00 4

And Port Angeles sales for December:

City Sold Price Days On Market
Port Angeles $123,000.00 4
Port Angeles $138,000.00 185
Port Angeles $159,900.00 8
Port Angeles $212,000.00 22
Port Angeles $243,000.00 175
Port Angeles $250,000.00 16
Port Angeles $260,000.00 188
Port Angeles $300,000.00 112
Port Angeles $309,500.00 198
Port Angeles $350,000.00 93

Don’t get hung up on the “Days on Market,” because sometimes the data here is wrong.   A long term listing can end up with another agent and the DOM can get set back to zero, although it may have been on the market for months already.

Reason No. 2.   Anyone who can afford a $650,000 or $829,000 home is seriously going to consider building their own custom home at that price.   Many luxury homes have been built by the owner with some unique characteristics, but a husband and wife buying team are going to say to themselves (as they have told me they do), “Why buy someone else’s idea of a custom kitchen, or someone else’s idea of a recreation room, or someone else’s idea of a shop, when we can buy our own lot for $250,000, plus or minus, and build an incredible home exactly suited to our personal preferences for $400,000 to $450,000, for a total of $650,000 to $700,000, and have what we want.”

This is what buyers have been telling me.   This is also why lowering the price again and again often doesn’t get the house sold.   We often like to say, “Well, we’re just looking for that one buyer.”   That’s true, we only need one buyer, but eliminating 95% of those in the pool of buyers right now makes for an extremely, almost impossible, sell.   Selling luxury homes in Sequim or Port Angeles in this market will require expertise and experience several levels above your average Realtor or enthusiastic homeowner.   You might get lucky, but do you want to pin your hopes on luck right now?

So you have decided to keep your eye open for a nice luxury home in the Sequim area that is very private and has a peaceful setting and a great mountain or water view.   But you’ve looked through the local MLS on a couple of websites (including this detailed and map-based Sequim MLS Search), and you haven’t seen anything that struck your fancy.

Let me guess.   You want something that is off the beaten path where no one can drive up to your house or even onto your property.   An iron gate would be essential.   Can’t have open access around your property boundaries either.   Must be something that can be secured.   And it needs to be a nice house, or a great property where you can build your own dream home using a builder who can be discreet.   Maybe something like Kris K’s place.   Oops!   Sorry Kris.   Well everyone knows you live here anyway.   You’ve been here the longest.   [My other friends from Hollywood will remain anonymous as they prefer.   I promise Andy.]

My point?   What you seek may not be listed in the MLS.   I recommend you just tell me exactly what you want, and I’ll find it for you, even if it is not for sale now.   I understand client confidentiality.   I’m 54, retired real estate attorney, bachelor, and while I’m a nice guy, I’m also a tough negotiator on your behalf.

Luxury homes in Sequim and Port Angeles are almost secrets.   Privacy, stunning, water views-these are a few   of the words that come to mind, but “wait, there’s more.”   The more is actually less.   Imagine what you would pay for a beautiful luxury home in California or even in the Seattle area.   Then divide that number by 5.   What would cost you $12.5 mil elsewhere is $2.5 mil here.   You pay a lot less for more here.

Here is a peek at what is available in Sequim and Port Angeles on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.

Luxury Home Sales in Sequim

While much of the county struggles with a depressing real estate market, Washington State does not, and the Sequim and Port Angeles areas do not. We struggle with a slowing market, but not a crisis market by any measurement.

The luxury home market is unique, and especially interesting in this market. In a depressed market, luxury homes typically find their prices slashed by 20%, 30% or more. Take, for example, Burt Reynold’s home in Florida (see photo). It is listed for sale at $10.5 million, which is 30% below its original list price.

In a less than vibrant market, luxury homes still hold their value well. When they don’t sell within a reasonable period of time, assuming they are priced at fair market value, it is not because of price but because the right buyer has not arrived at this time and place. The single most important factor in selling a luxury home, again assuming fair market value, is connecting with qualified buyers far away. Intelligently connecting with such buyers is a very involved and challenging marketing and CRM (customer relationship management) process, which is why luxury homeowners who decide to go “FSBO” have so little “luck.” In fact, an inexperienced real estate agent doesn’t bring much more to the table than a FSBO can bring to the table for himself. An experienced professional Realtor takes selling to entirely new levels unknown to the FSBO and new agent. This is all critical in selling luxury homes.

The prices of Sequim and Port Angeles luxury homes certainly do not approach the prices of expensive Florida celebrity homes. A luxury home here can be had for as little as $700,000, more or less. For example, I just sold a luxury home in the Sequim area for $759,000. It’s an amazing paradise with 2,300 square feet of the best construction and best money can buy in every feature. The floor plan and architecture offer everything a homeowner wants. It is environmentally friendly (“green”), has a hot tub that is always hot at low cost, has a drop dead water view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca from the living room, and on a clear day you wake up to an extraordinary water view from the master suite. It has a 48 foot long RV barn built to withstand a hurricane, a workshop, an extended double car garage, an small guest house, and 20 acres of pristine wilderness adjacent to a nationally protected park.

This luxury home sold in a slowing market at only 5% less than it’s listed price. That is definitely holding its value in any market. Not only did this house sell very near listed price, while this offer was pending, a backup offer appeared for all cash. Amazing! This proves that good buyers are out there, and they are buying. People who have planned to move for a job transition or a retirement do not put their lives on hold just because the real estate market has slowed. In fact, this becomes a grand opportunity for them to purchase their dream home at a reasonable price. Sellers should be reassured that homes are selling, and that buyers will pay fair market value for the home of their dreams.

From Los Angeles

It's rare, but once in awhile life provides the perfect collaborator for an important endeavor such as buying your new home. For me that person was Chuck Marunde. His two decade background as a Real Estate Attorney, his prolific career as an author of articles and books on Real Estate and his forthright and moral character made choosing Chuck a no-brainer. Chuck is dedicated, thorough, incredible at the negotiating table, knowledgeable about all local laws & regs but, most importantly, Chuck loves what he does. And what he does is find his client the perfect property. Chuck isn't about making the sale, he's about making the sale that is OPTIMUM for his CLIENT and this makes Chuck a rare bird indeed. I love my new home in Sequim and I am indebted to Chuck for making it happen. Kevin E.

From Seattle

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chuck over the past three years in selling my parent's estate. It was a tough time to sell during the housing recession, but Chuck always kept things on the positive side. With his real estate law background, he offers sound, practical advice. He helps you along with the process using discussions and reason, rather than opinions and speculations. If Chuck doesn’t know the answers, he will get them for you. In several instances, Chuck took the initiative to meet with county officials to get up-to-date facts about zoning and regulations. I was always impressed with his company’s tech savvy communi-cations and internet presence: weekly email updates, blogs, videos, links, Linked-in networking, etc. He is truly pioneering the future of buying & selling real estate. Brian M.

From Florida

We do our homework for the task at hand and we look for and expect to enlist partners that do the same. It was our good fortune to select Chuck Marunde of Sequim and Port Angeles Real Estate to represent us as a buyer's broker in our search for a home in the Sequim/Port Angeles area. Chuck's site is all encompassing and super fast compared to many others, he knows the market at every conceivable level and his guidance through the process of selecting and purchasing a home is priceless - above and beyond that of anyone with whom we have ever worked. Add to all this his 20 year background in real estate law and you have discovered a superb asset in the adventure of purchasing a home. Greg and Marilyn

From Gilroy California

As an out of state buyer unfamiliar with the area, it was important to me not only to have a real estate agent who knew the area well, but also one who knew the value of the properties. I chose Chuck because he is also a real estate lawyer and it is reassuring to have that extra degree working for you. I selected the houses I was interested in on line before taking a two day trip to Sequim to look at them in person. I sent my list to Chuck, who gave me feedback, then organized our tour so we could see 16 properties in a short time. He was very accommodating, driving me all over Sequim, and rescheduling appointments when we fell behind on our time. On day two, I found my home and we drafted an offer on it that evening. By the time I arrived back home on the plane the next evening, my offer had been accepted. Chuck was honest about what it would take to get me into my new home, while having my back the entire transaction. Since I was unable to relocate immediately after closing, he and his assistant Ade, have been taking care of many additional responsibilities for me. He was a pleasure to work with. Chris D.

From Corona California

The best decision I made, once I settled on Sequim as the ideal place to spend the rest of my days, was to hook up with Chuck Marunde as my broker/go-to guy. He happily took on the entire complicated merry-go-round associated with a long distance move that involved selling in Southern California (with a different agent) and buying in Sequim – all in the span of just over a month. The unexpectedly quick sale of my previous home was already a week into a 30 day escrow when I got to Sequim for my house hunt. We had two days to find my slice of heaven. And day one was less than stellar, each home having at least one major issue. The killer was the dream home that turned out to be an unmitigated disaster once we got inside. I was crushed. Chuck had his work cut out for him that night. And he worked his magic. On day two there was one beautiful possibility, but not quite right. Suffice to say, in the early afternoon we pulled into a driveway and the first words out of my mouth were “That’s my house.” 29 days later I took possession of my new home. Every sale has its issues, but throwing in the complications of a short escrow on top of 1200 miles of separation from all documentation, etc. gives new meaning to “challenging”. Thanks to his encyclopedic knowledge coupled with a great sense of humor, Chuck was able to keep me on an even keel when things got dicey. He knows when to step in and when to let it evolve. I cannot imagine making this move without him. Rebecca B.

From Bakersfield California

"During the months of February and March 2012, Chuck showed my wife and I over two dozen homes from Port Angeles to Port Townsend. We found Chuck to be very helpful, friendly and courteous. With Chuck there is no pressure; It is all about finding the best home for the buyer. As a Buyer's Agent, Chuck will give you his honest opinion of a property, including a fair market price. In one instance Chuck wrote up an offer for us which was accepted. Chuck was very helpful arranging for home and well inspections which involved multiple trips to the property. Unfortunately, escrow failed to close when, during the home inspection process, it was determined that a septic system repair was needed which the seller was unwilling/unable to make. We will continue to work with Chuck as there is no better Buyer's Agent on the North Olympic" Bert and Sally
Sequim Real Estate Q&A

From Los Alamos New Mexico

"Over a year ago, during a visit to the Olympic Game Farm, we developed what we eventually called the “Sequim Syndrome.” We live in New Mexico and decided Sequim was where we wanted to live in retirement. On our second visit to Sequim, we met with Chuck and asked him to help us. Chuck's web site provides such amazing search capabilities. Chuck's site also contains a 1000 blog postings and a real estate video series detailing buying real estate in Sequim. We bought Chuck's book about Sequim real estate and set out to follow his advice carrying on an ongoing email and phone conversation with Chuck. Doing our due diligence “Marunde style” and using his MLS search site, we came up with about 50 homes that met our needs. We narrowed the list down to 15 properties that best met our needs. We came back to Sequim a third time with our list in hand, and Chuck spent two days with us showing us all the homes on our list. Not only did Chuck help us find that dream home, he spent time to educate us about the quality of construction, fair market values of various properties, home layouts, and the joys of Sequim living. We had a great time as we traveled from house to house. By mid afternoon of the second day, my wife said we had found “the house.” Chuck helped us draft our offer and sent our offer to the seller's agent. It turned out there was a second offer made on the property at the same time. Chuck's help to make a clean offer paid off. At breakfast two days later, we got a call from Chuck saying our offer had been accepted by the sellers. We are now back home in New Mexico. Chuck attends every inspection on our behalf, updating us at every turn by email and phone. Our dream home is becoming a reality because of Chuck and because we were smart enough to follow his advice. We absolutely would NOT have been able to do this without Chuck Marunde's expertise and enthusiasm. We recommend Chuck to everyone planning a move to Sequim, Port Angeles, or anywhere on the Olympic Peninsula. Chuck is a gold mine of information and expertise for home buyers everywhere, not just on the Olympic" Larry and Shirley

From Sun Lakes Arizona

"We are ex-Washington residents who currently live in Arizona. We had been searching the Puget Sound area four years for a waterfront property to build a retirement home when we first contacted Chuck Marunde through his website. We had made multiple trips to various areas but most of the Realtors we contacted simply sent us an email, provided no follow up and did next to nothing to help us locate a property. On our first trip to Port Angeles, after connecting with Chuck, we purchased our dream property. We now own a high bank waterfront lot overlooking the Straight of Jaun de Fuca, and are excited to become part of the Peninsula community." Paul and Linda

From California

"Andy Romano is a successful motion picture character actor with over 40 years in 'the Biz.' Mr. Romano has a home in beautiful Santa Barbara, California, but he chooses to live most of the time in Sequim, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula in the great Pacific Northwest. Why? In his own words, 'Because it's even more beautiful and surrounded by more beauty in this incredibly peaceful and quiet place. With respect to real estate agents or brokers, well my friend Chuck Marunde, owner of Sequim and Port Angeles Real Estate, is hands down the best there" Andy R.

From Sequim

I’ve known Chuck Marunde for several years. My wife and I bought and sold one house through his services, and now have another listed through him for sale. Whether Chuck was representing us as the buyer or seller, I am confident he always had our best interests at heart. He helped us set or negotiate a reasonable price, and made sure there was a clear and open line of communication. He responded rapidly to email and phone calls and always knew the best person to contact for the various services involved in a transaction. I have worked with quite a few real estate agents and Chuck is right at the top of my list of good ones. Actually, Chuck is first and foremost just a good person, and he carries his personal honesty and integrity over into his profession. He has the greatest depth of experience in real estate of any agent or broker I have known. His years of practicing real estate law prior to becoming a broker are evident in the meticulous care he takes with the process and documentation. I am impressed by the way Chuck has integrated internet services into his real estate business. He probably knows more about this process than any other realtor in the country. In this tight market it is important to use every possible means to spread the word about available properties…to reach the few people who might be interested in a particular property. Steve L.

From The Netherlands

"We contacted Chuck about six months ago to help find a retirement property in Sequim. We had visited Sequim several weeks before and decided that this was the place for us to retire. We liked the friendly people and the natural beauty of the area. We had been looking for some time in other parts of the country - California, Oregon, North Carolina, and Vermont. In most of these other areas, we found real estate agents that were knowledgeable but did not follow up with us to continue narrowing down real estate possibilities. Once we were out of earshot, communications would stop. That is one of the reasons we were interested in working with Chuck. Besides having great knowledge of both the local real estate market and of law, his testimonials on the internet indicated a willingness to actively communicate with his clients. Chuck demonstrated this immediately. Even before we met, he responded very quickly and helpfully to any email question. After arriving for a second visit to Sequim in September, we finally met Chuck face to face. He was friendly, encouraging, and readily shared good practical information. We worked with him on a number of candidate properties - including an offer on a property while visiting that week. Although we could not come to terms with the owners on the final property price, we look forward to continuing to work closely with Chuck. He is an invaluable resource to help us identify and purchase the retirement property that's right for us." Paul and Virginia

From Fremont California

We can't say enough about working with Chuck Marunde. Luck would have it that we discovered his web site, spoke with him on the phone and had an instant feeling that we had found our realtor. And we were right. With Chucks help and expertise, our longtime dream to retire to the Pacific Northwest came to fruition with Chuck assisting us in finding the perfect home for us. Buying a home is always a big decision and these days can be complex with unexpected delays etc. In fact, our whole experience from offer day to closing, was very smooth. Chuck took all the time we needed to explain processes and made us feel at ease, even though we lived 800 miles away, tying up loose ends and getting ready for the big move to our new home in Sequim. We were impressed with Chuck's ability to listen to our needs and understand our concerns in buying from a distance. Chuck kept us informed all along the way, during the process and was so good at getting right back to us if we had another question. All went so well and Chuck really went above and beyond for us, taking time out from his busy schedule to assist us with some details regarding our beautiful property, even after the closing, because we were not yet arrived there. Without hesitation, our son and his wife will be contacting Chuck this summer, as they plan to follow us to paradise in this lovely town. Thanks again Chuck, for everything! Mary and Jerry

From Fontana California

My husband and I went to Sequim intending to interview several realtors to find one to help us locate and buy a home in Sequim. We knew we wanted someone we could trust and who would have our best interests in mind. Since we would be handling the transaction from S. California this was very important to us. We met Chuck and looked no further. We felt a connection right away and spent some time looking at homes together so Chuck could get a feel for what we wanted. Well, we left Sequim having made an offer on a home which the owner accepted. Chuck has helped us through the purchase process. We are positive it would not have gone so smoothly without his help. We give him 4 thumbs up. Wally & Cathy

From Tacoma

Chuck Marunde’s level of expertise in real estate investment is amazing. His knowledge, experience and legal training have given me a dramatic advantage in real estate investing. He works hard to stay on the cutting edge of real estate marketing, sound advice and value-added service for his clients. Kirk Wald, Financial Planner

From Wendell Idaho

My wife and I moved to Sequim six weeks ago, and prior to our move here I contacted Chuck Marunde and enlisted his help as our buyer's agent. Once we got here, it took us about two weeks looking at houses, and Chuck did a superb job of showing us places and letting us make our own decisions and guide us through the purchase of our home. We now completed our transaction and are very happy. We would recommend Chuck to anybody. Don & Marilyn

From Sequim

"Buying property either commercial or residential can sometimes be a tricky proposition. That’s why I would recommend Chuck to help you with purchasing or selling property. His background as a real-estate lawyer and his no nonsense to the point advice will help you make the right decisions. Experience and Integrity, what you need when you can’t afford to make a mistake. Dail Hurdlow, CEO, Hurdlow Enterprises

From Seattle

I am an experienced real estate buyer, but I am not from the Sequim area. I am somewhat flexible, realistic, but also particular. So the question was, “how do you choose the RIGHT real estate agent?”

I made my appointment with Chuck on a Sunday morning in March, 2013. He showed me 5 houses. Every house he showed me was within my parameters! I was amazed: a real estate who listened, did his research, and didn't waste my time showing me houses I would never buy! I made an offer a few days later. That was the easy part…

Buying a house is always a stressful time in life. Advice to Buyers: choose an agent who is competent, communicates well, and has exceptional follow-up and follow-through! You will spend a lot of time with your agent during the process. Choose someone likable. Go with your gut. I got to know Chuck during the process, and he's a great guy!

You need an agent who is competent to handle and help you negotiate the issues that come up during disclosure, home inspection, appraisal, etc. Chuck's competence is superb! I got truly professional, sound, straightforward advice.

Chuck's communication skills are exceptional: phone, email, fax. He has a wonderful ability to stay "on-point" with what is actually important and doesn't lead you astray on issues that aren't so important.

Chuck's turn-around time on questions, issue resolution, etc. was virtually always within 24 hours. He follows-up, follows-through. He does what he says he will do timely. This relieves a lot of Buyer stress!

Having a difficult time finding the right agent? Simplify your life! Choose Chuck Marunde. I did. [Name withheld by request]
