Buying Sequim real estate means facing some challenges. If you know the challenges you will face, you can plan ahead and be better prepared for your transition to Sequim. This real estate blog with over 1,400 articles has become one of the most popular real estate blogs in the northwest and along the west coast precisely because it helps retirees plan their transition and purchase of their Sequim real estate. Buyers can find the answers to almost every question that buyers have asked in the past 15 years about buying Sequim real estate.
Having been a real estate attorney for 20 years and in real estate brokerage going back over three decades, I enjoy helping buyers, and the information on this blog represents the largest source of free and valuable advice for buyers on the Olympic Peninsula.
Your Sequim Real Estate Transition
I break down the challenges facing buyers of Sequim real estate into four general categories. First, before you can retire and make the big move, you must have solved your retirement planning. That’s the first big hurdle. Second, for those selling a home in California or Colorado or another state, you must successfully get that home sold and closed. Third, you have the challenge of successfully moving to Sequim. After living in one place for 20 or 30 or 40 years, that’s no small challenge.
Sequim Real Estate – The Fourth Challenge
And fourth, you must find and successfully negotiate the purchase of your Sequim real estate. This fourth step is what this real estate blog addresses, but you can read an article with a nice visual display of all four steps at the Four Steps to Buying Sequim Real Estate.
Sequim Real Estate
When you buy Sequim real estate, you face these specific challenges: finding and filtering the right properties online before you arrive, finding the right real estate agent, making an offer at the right price (not too high and not too unreasonably low), handling all the inspections necessary and the due diligence items, knowing how to deal with a counteroffer, knowing how to respond to an unreasonable seller and/or agent, managing your loan application and underwriter requirements, and a host of small but critically important items when you buy Sequim real estate. You can call or email me anytime, and I’ll help make your transition and your Sequim real estate purchase go smoothly.

Thanks for talking about the challenges. The last paragraph serves as a good checklist on getting your house in order when you are, well, buying a house. 🙂
