Sequim homes are selling despite the real estate recession. I’ve been very busy working with buyers from outside the Sequim area during these spring months. Sequim has been written about in many magazines as one of the 10 best places to retire in America, and it sometimes surprises me that so many people from around the country know about Sequim. What are people buying? Here are properties I’ve sold in the first few months of this year. These are homes and land purchased by retirees who chose this area as their retirement home.
A three bedroom, two bath, 2,100 square foot custom built home on three acres in a quiet area north of Woodcock and east of Sequim-Dungeness Avenue. This home has hardwood floors, custom built kitchen cabinets, vaulted ceilings, a large two-car attached garage, a guest house with 600 square feet, a large fenced dog area separate from the yard and an asphalt driveway. This gorgeous home sold for $387,500. I wish I had more homes like this one to sell in this market. I acted as a buyer’s agent.
A one acre lot within walking distance of the spit to the Sequim lighthouse and with a beautiful view of a valley and Olympic Mountains. This lot sold for less than the comparables at $100,000. Most comparable lots are selling for $140,000 and above. I was the buyer’s agent.
A 1,400 square foot two bedroom (upstairs), two bath home with a 40 x 40 foot attached garage (or shop) on five acres on the east side of Sequim. Selling price: $229,000. This was my listing.
A two story 2,200 square foot, two bath home on three acres with a water view from Port Angeles overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. While this home was built in 1989, it is in excellent condition and beautiful inside and out. It sits high above Port Angeles in a peaceful area with an extraordinary water view. I represented these out-of-state clients as a buyer’s agent.
A Bell Hill home, two stories, five bedrooms, 5,000 square feet, on one acre with a stunning view of Happy Valley and the mountains to the south and east. Bell Hill is one of the area’s premier locations, and at $395,000, this was a steal even in this market. This was my listing.
