Sequim is located on the North Olympic Peninsula between the Olympic Mountains to the south and the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the north. Since we live on a peninsula, we are surrounded by water, and there are water views galore, from beachfront to low and high bluff views, to long distance mountain top water views. But that begs the question. A great water view is hard to find at any price. When people move to Sequim, they don’t sell for 15 years, so the best properties are probably not available. Once in a while a gorgeous water view lot comes up for sale, but it’s rare. And once in a great while an existing home with a stunning water view comes on the market, but you have to watch for those, because they won’t last long if they are listed at fair market value.
Be careful when you’re looking at photos of water views on an MLS online from far away, because we do have listing agents who will take a telephoto shot of what is actually a peek-a-boo water view, and make it look like a stunning panoramic water view. This is another reason to communicate with me before you come so I can help you filter out properties that are not what they appear to be online.
In terms of price, a nice one or two acre parcel on a high bluff with a beautiful water view will typically be listed at $300,000 to $400,000. Then build a home for $350,000, add excavation and utilities, and you’re into it for about $800,000 before landscaping.
