There are many Sequim homes for sale, but there are also many traps for the unwary–nightmares to avoid. What if you could sit down and talk with a Sequim Realtor who has been in the area for a couple of decades and ask that Realtor every question you could think of related to looking at Sequim homes for sale and buying your ideal home? And what if you could also talk to a real estate attorney in Sequim who could answer all your questions about the issues that come up when buyers are negotiating and buying a Sequim home?
Now you can. I am a Realtor who also practiced real estate law in Sequim for many years going back to the early 1990’s. I will list below the main problems that buyers regularly see in Sequim. Consider the value of these tips, because they have cost hundreds of buyers money and stress as they have gone through these traps, and they include the experience of an entire career of a real estate attorney and Realtor. I mention this, because sometimes if someone hands you something of real value, you may not realize how much value is really there. After all, if something is free, how much can it be worth? Right? I’m giving you what took me decades to learn and cost buyers tens of thousands of dollars to learn, and I’m giving it to you absolutely free right here. Why? Because my theory is that I should be willing to help my clients in every way I can, and I also want to try to separate myself from the crowd of Realtors out there vying for your business. I hope you feel I am competent and trustworthy to represent you as your Sequim Buyer’s Agent.

Thanks for this article; I agree with you. Would like to add another point though – I think pest and mold inspections are also important while buying homes anywhere.
And as buyers observe these things, you should take care of these things before you put your home for viewing as well.
