Who is looking at Sequim homes in the winter? Many buyers are. I’ve been out showing Sequim homes to two different buyers this week with temperatures dipping to freezing and below. As always, I had a great time taking my clients around and showing them homes. We looked at several gorgeous homes, and three had very impressive water views. Every showing is an adventure and each home has a story.
Sequim Homes for Sale
Last month from November 1st to November 30th, buyers closed on 91 properties in Clallam County. There are 20 week days in November, so this means that 4 or 5 homes closed every day in November. And this is November in the middle of a cold winter. In this small market, those are big numbers. In November of 2012 only 55 properties were sold. This November’s sales are a massive 60% increase over last year. Let no one say homes don’t sell in the winter in Sequim and Port Angeles. This is proof beyond a reasonable doubt that homes are selling all year long here.
Sequim Homes Sold
The homes that sold last month are in all price ranges all the way up to almost one million dollars. The homes I showed yesterday are gorgeous homes ranging in price from $498,000 to $1.1 million. Two of the homes that I sold in November included a $500,000 home in Port Townsend and a $225,000 home in Brinnon, which is 25 minutes down Highway 101 from Sequim. I helped my buyers on that sale to purchase the home from a Bankruptcy Trustee. The home will require perhaps $200,000 to finish it, but then it will be worth roughly $800,000. It was a very complex buying process, because a Trustee has a different set of legal requirements when it comes to selling an asset like a home. It took about a year to get that transaction closed.
Serious qualified buyers do not stop planning their retirement move just because the temperature doesn’t cooperate with their travel plans. Actually, coming to Sequim may be a reprieve, especially if your coming from Colorado or New York or Texas where all the bad weather is creating problems. Sequim homes are selling even in these winter months. Which online MLS website is the best? I recommend Sequim4Sale.com. Come to Sequim and let me show you some Sequim homes.
