Finding the best home in Sequim is the goal of every couple who comes to Sequim to retire and buy their ideal retirement home. Of course, the best home in Sequim will be described differently for buyers, but after working with hundreds of couples, I’ve learned that there are some logical steps buyers can take to find the best home in Sequim for their needs and wants. There is one step that is unquestionably the first and most important step in this whole process.
The first step is identifying where you want to live. I’ve had clients who came to the Olympic Peninsula not knowing whether they wanted to live in Sequim, Port Angeles, Port Townsend, Port Hadlock, Port Ludlow, or further south. Initially, you may not know where you want to live, but here’s the dilemma.
If you start looking at homes in each city, you’re going to confuse yourself and ultimately end up going home without making any decision. Imagine going to Costco with the goal of finding the best volume bargain. You would end up leaving Costco without having bought anything. But if you narrowed your goal down to a particular department and a particular product, you could find the best volume bargain. This is very similar to the process you’ll use to find the best home in Sequim.
The Best Home in Sequim
To narrow down your location, I recommend doing a lot of online research before your arrive, assuming you are living outside the Sequim and Port Angeles area. You can learn all about any of the above cities and areas online, and there are thousands of photos and videos online, too. Ultimately, you may feel the need to drive around each of these areas yourself to explore. If you cannot decide where you want to live after months of online research and after driving around personally, you are probably not ready to start looking at homes.

Location is first. Then start looking at homes within that area that ideally suit your wants and needs. Too many choices create confusion. Once you’ve narrowed down your favorite location or area, then you can filter through the listings online and view a short list of homes you actually want to see.
Hundreds of buyers have taught me that the first organized step in finding your ideal retirement home is identifying your retirement location. I hope Sequim is your preferred location and that this helps you find the best home in Sequim.
