Sequim farms, Sequim homes, Sequim land, Sequim waterfront property, Sequim private mountain property, and the peaceful country environment on the Olympic Peninsula are all major reasons retirees are moving to Sequim and buying homes and land every single month, even in this recession.
Sequim Farms and Old Barns
If you grew up in the ’60s, you might remember your parents or their friends using an expression, “Why don’t you kids go play in the traffic.” Then they would roar with laughter as they went back to their card game at the dining room table while enjoying the national past time, smoking cigarettes. This basketball hoop on the side of this barn in the hills above Port Angeles reminded me of that silly humor from my childhood. This basketball court would have given new meaning to that phrase.
Sequim Farms and Acreage
I was out previewing homes with acreage today for a client who lives down south. It was a lot of fun, and we have some very interesting Sequim farms and homes with acreage for sale. Some are old, and that’s okay as long as they aren’t priced like brand new homes you could build with your own perfect floor plan. One of the homes I previewed today was on 10 acres and priced just under $500,000, but it was built in the 1970’s and would need substantial upgrades in the kitchen and bathroom, and there are some things you simply cannot upgrade. Why some owners and their real estate agents don’t seem to comprehend that such a home is worth less than brand new construction, I do not know. Buyers certainly know the difference, and buyers are not going to pay a premium price for an outdated architectural floor plan in a home that needs substantial upgrading that will costs tens of thousands of dollars. Buyers tell me this all the time.

One of the attractions to me and my wife are the farms and agricultural environment in the Sequim area. We love the country setting and the fields and grazing cows and horses everywhere. Sequim really is a beautiful area, and I have to say, much more than Port Angeles. Am I allowed to say that?
