Some homes are on the market a long time before they sell, but some homes are sold once, twice, and even three times, like this home. I sold this home three times in the past two years. The first time it was a foreclosure, and it was really a disaster. The elderly woman who owned it, abandoned it and let it go into foreclosure. She moved out and left her furniture and personal possessions. It took over a year for the bank to complete the foreclosure.
My clients bought this home when others thought it was hopeless. They completely remodeled the home, inside and out, and turned it into a beautiful modern home. The next buyers had decided to move to Sequim, although the husband had a chiropractic practice in Silverdale, an hour away. After about 6 months of living in the home, their own adult children were moving to Silverdale, and they decided to buy a home closer to their children, so they put this home on the market.
I sold it a third time for $239,000. Since the inventory for 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes is very limited, this was a good price for a 1,450 square foot home without a garage. It sits on almost one acre in a quiet and peaceful area near the end of a cul de sac a few miles northwest of downtown Sequim.
You can see what the current inventory looks like by viewing this list of all active Sequim MLS listings of 3 bedroom homes from $225,000 to $275,000: Sequim Homes.
