What does a Realtor do on a beautiful sunny day in Sequim? Show homes and property of course. (The other choices include jogging, hiking in the Olympic National Park, kayaking in Sequim Bay, or . . . mowing the lawn.) Today I enjoyed spending the day with some wonderful clients looking at a gorgeous piece of property with an incredible water view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. What would you say to building a home on a large parcel with a stunning water view and a peaceful quiet surrounding? On a day like today with the sun brightly shining, it was just plain fun hiking around on that land.
The other listing we looked at was a home for this couple’s adult children. The home was offered at a really low price, and it sits on land in an excellent area between Sequim and Port Angeles. But when we walked through the house, it was not all that sweet. In fact, the odor of cat urine was unmistakable. The house would require tremendous attention to make it inhabitable, and even though it was below $200,000, not a good buy, unless one could get it as such a low price as to make demolishing it and re-building a practical alternative.
And now that I’m back in my office, I’m preparing a listing agreement for another beautiful home which also has a water view, and you’ll see that home on this blog soon after I’ve gotten photographs and published a video tour. Tomorrow I take videos of a new listing of a rare and extraordinary home that will only be available through my office. It will be in the upper price range and will appeal to a discerning out-of-state buyer who can afford the ultimate dream home.
