Freeland Home Sold by Chuck Marunde

Every once in a while one of my Sequim clients cannot find their ideal home in Sequim or Port Angeles or even Port Townsend. Sometimes when my buyer approves, we expand the search as in this case where we found the perfect home in Freeland on Whidbey Island. It is a beautiful little home on a very nice lot in a great neighborhood. This home sold for full listing price at $495,000.

Sequim Homes Sold by Chuck Marunde

It was my pleasure to represent the buyers on this purchase. This is one of a kind gorgeous home with extraordinary materials and finish work, a kitchen for an LA Chef, architecture that you might find in Hollywood, almost 10 acres of horse property, a giant three car attached garage and a detached shop and garage area, and more than you would expect on the Olympic Peninsula. The seller was asking $1,100,000, and it sold for $1,070,000. The market is definitely as seller’s market and there isn’t much left in the inventory, but in this high price range, there is a little more negotiating power for a buyer because there are fewer buyers in the upper price range.

Sequim Mini Farm Sold

I also represented the buyers on this transaction as an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent, and it was a pleasure. It was exactly what my buyers were looking for, and they are the perfect farmer couple. They really know how to farm and care for animals, and if anyone is prepared for whatever may come in the future, it would be these clients on this property. There was a total of 10 acres here, and the house sold for $435,000 on 5 acres, and the additional 5 acres was purchased separately.

Bell Hill Home Sold

This Bell Hill home sold to just the right buyer, and sometimes that’s what it takes. It’s an older home on a couple of acres with a wonderful water view. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath Bell Hill home on two levels is very special, and the large auto shop with a commercial lift appealed to this buyer.

Bell Hill Home with Water View

It’s not easy finding the perfect Bell Hill Home. Many have a water view, or course, but they also are more pricey than most homes in the area. This Bell Hill home sold for $515,000, and I represented the sellers.

Sequim Home on Acreage

This Sequim home on acreage (3 acres) is in the famous Sequim Blue Hole, aka the Sequim Rain Shadow, and with a panoramic mountain view, this is premium property. But the home itself is one of the highest quality custom built homes in the entire area.

Sequim Home on Acreage

What makes this brand new home especially appealing is the stunning architecture. The floor plan flows, and you can feel that emotionally as you walk through the house, because something inside is screaming, “Yes, yes, yes.”

I represented the buyers on this $645,000 purchase. By the way, notice that tax assessed values are often way low. This home is assessed for almost $200,000 less than it sold for. That is not uncommon in Clallam County.

Sequim Homes Recently Sold

One of the Sequim homes recently sold is this beautiful country home on three acres. It was built by a custom home builder who only built one or two homes a year. When he was almost finished with this home, the recession had hit and he couldn’t sell it. He let the bank take it back, and it was eventually sold to someone who finished it. After enjoying the home for several years, that owner contacted me to sell it.

A buyer from another state saw this home and fell in love. The buyer is an employee of Costco and was extremely happy about getting the opportunity to transfer to Sequim. This is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath home with a gorgeous kitchen and an open floor plan. The master bath has a full soaking tub with jets, a full double shower, double sinks, and lots of natural lighting. This home sold for $375,000. I represented the buyer and the seller as a dual agent. The seller was happy because I sold their home in 4 days, and the buyers think they are living in Heaven. Both are quite happy.

I represented the buyers on this transaction, and this unit on the right side sold for $331,000. The is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath in 1,700 sq.ft. plus a garage built in 1977. So the home needs updating, especially in the kitchen.

The location is pretty hot on Marine Drive. Properties on Marine Drive sell at a premium. This Sequim Townhome has a walking trail about 100 feet in front of the home that goes down to the beach for those early morning or evening walks. There is also a public boat launch about a quarter mile away. The windows from the living room and the family room offer a gorgeous and peaceful water view. Who doesn’t love a water view?

Emerald Highlands in Sequim

This perfect little Emerald Highlands home overlooking Sequim is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home right in the top of the bell curve of what so many retirees want. At just under 1,800 square feet with an attached double garage only minutes from downtown Sequim, this is a wonderful property. The landscaping in the back yard is also incredible, and since seller’s do not get reimbursed in the selling price of the home, this buyer got all this beautiful landscaping free.

Emerald Highlands

Emerald Highlands is a subdivision on the south side of Highway 101 overlooking the city of Sequim, and since it is on a hillside, many of the homes, including this one, have a water view of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This home sold for $327,500, and I represented the buyers.

Sequim Bell Hill Home Sold

This Bell Hill Home (Bell Gates which is adjacent to Bell Hill) is one of Sequim’s gorgeous luxury homes with 5,000 square feet, two levels, hardwood floors, and over $100,000 in custom wood molding throughout the house. Not every Bell Hill home has a water view, but this home certainly does.

Bell Hill Home

Bell Hill Home Sold

This is the kind of luxury home that was built without any shortcuts. If you are going to build a one million dollar home, you’re probably not going to use cheap materials or take shortcuts on wood working or paint or the quality of labor you hire. This seller and builder did not hold anything back when building this home. If it were built today, it would cost substantially more than what it sold for. This home sold for $950,000, and I represented the sellers. The buyers were from California.

Sequim Home on One Acre

Another Sequim home just sold. This home was only on the market for 22 days before it sold. It sits on a beautiful little one acre parcel with an old but small barn. With 2,082 square feet, three small bedrooms, and a kitchen that could use remodeling, it sold for $200,000. It isn’t the home that most retirees are looking for, but it was an ideal starter home for a younger couple. It was listed at $209,000.

Sequim Home

Sequim Home

I represented the sellers on this one. Some people view me as a buyer’s agent, and I am, but some Sequim home sellers have noticed that I market to buyers with a larger Internet marketing presence than any other individual broker, especially with my thousands of articles online written specifically for buyers. So some Sequim homeowners are finally doing their online research and finding me, and they call to ask if I would consider listing their homes.

Sequim Mini-Farm Sold

This Sequim mini-farm is pretty special. It’s only 2.58 acres, but it is 100% useable land, and the entire property is fenced for animals. There is a barn and two garages, and the house was built in 1976 but is in very good condition. The property has irrigation rights, and a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains. This Sequim mini-farm is definitely one of the best.

Sequim Mini-Farm

It’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,850 square foot home on one level. The deck is on the south side of the house, which means it has the mountain view, and the deck is shielded on windy days. This home sold for $385,000 and had another backup offer. I represented the buyer in this transaction.

Diamond Point Homes

Diamond Point Homes have some of the best water views, and this one sold recently for $240,000. Of course, it includes a Diamond Point Water View as do many Diamond Point Homes, and with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1,800 square feet, it is just what these buyers wanted.

Diamond Point Homes

Diamond Point Homes

Above the double garage is a very cool guest room, which is set up as a nice office or reading area right now. The driveway is a little steep, but if you want a water view you have to consider the possibility that the house will be on a hillside with a steep driveway. I represented the buyers on this purchase.

Gorgeous Happy Valley Home Sold

This gorgeous Happy Valley home sold recently for $487,000. It is classic custom built home with a floor plan that was obviously well thought out by someone who knows what buyers want. In this case, the sellers designed this home, but they designed it as the vast majority of retirees would design their own homes: all on one level, a stunning kitchen, an open floor plan, a big but comfortable master bedroom with a master bath, walk-in closet and a sitting area. This is 3 level acres, and it also has a view of the Olympic Mountains.

Happy Valley

Happy Valley is Prime Real Estate

This was a tough negotiation, because the sellers were a bit stubborn and not under any financial pressure to sell. But they wanted to live closer to the grandkids, so that was their motivation. I represented the buyers on the purchase of this Happy Valley Home. By the way, my buyers were from New York.

The Ultimate Bell Hill View

This Bell Hill home was one of the early homes built (1992) on one of the best lots with what some of us have considered the best water view from Bell Hill.

Bell Hill

Bell Hill

This Bell Hill home sold for $660,000. I represented the sellers, and helped them market their home to buyers all over the world, and the buyer was from overseas, although they are Americans. The lot is a one acre lot, and the home is custom built to take advantage of the water view from every room in the home.

Sequim Water View

This home was like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. When my buyers and I first looked at it, we both knew it was an extraordinary home for an ordinary price, and it was a done deal after negotiating a little. With 2 bedrooms plus a den, 2 baths, and everything on the main floor (with a daylight basement that has a shop in it), and about 1,800 square feet, this was the perfect retiree’s home.

Sequim Water View

Did I mention it also has a Sequim water view from Palo Alto Road?

Sequim Home on 1 Acre

This Sequim home on 1 acre is one of the highest quality custom built homes in the area, and it is a short walk from the Dungeness Spit. Three bedrooms, 2 baths, an open floor plan for the living room, dining room, and kitchen with a gas fireplace and hardwood floors make this a beautiful home. But what makes it an amazing home is the floor plan. It flows and somehow is very comfortable at the emotional level. This home sold for $415,000.

home on 1 acre

I represented the buyers and the sellers on this transaction, which was unique, but both the sellers and buyers found the way I conducted myself as a dual agent was absolutely uncompromising for each of them, and they both wrote me praising testimonials. I share that because dual agency can be dangerous to your financial health if not handled right.

Diamond Point Water View

This Diamond Point water view was worth $235,000 and came with a two story home and detached double garage. The second floor has a deck with large windows on the east end of the house facing the water. There was only one bedroom on that main floor, which also had everything else, and the daylight basement had spare rooms.

Diamond Point

Diamond Point has a lot of water views, and this was a good price for this kind of view and home. I represented the seller on this one.

Sequim Home on 6 Acres

On a previous sale I wrote that it is hard to find a home on 5 acres, and it is, but I represented the buyer on the purchase of this Sequim home on 6 acres in a quiet little area only four miles from downtown Sequim. It’s a small home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, but my single buyer is absolutely ecstatic to be able to find this at $239,000.

We had some challenges getting the out of town lender to do their job, but ultimately we worked through all that to close.

Sequim Home on 5 Acres

This Sequim home on 5 acres was on the market for a while before I sold it to buyers from Oregon. It’s a beautiful 5 acre parcel, all of which is useable because it is level and cleared. There’s a nice mountain view to the south, and this property is sitting very near the center of the Sequim Blue Hole.

Home on 5 Acres

It’s hard to find a home on 5 acres at a reasonable price, and at $405,000, this was a good price right in there at fair market value. It was built in 2005 and is 2,018 square feet with a master bedroom at each end plus a bedroom. The double garage is on the other side of the house.

Sequim Home Sold in Quiet Neighborhood

My buyers on this home were very fortunate, because this home is just perfect, and for a small lot, it is surprisingly private and to the south are nothing but trees below and a mountain view on the horizon. This three bedroom, two bath home, 1852 square foot home sits on .40 acres (less than 1/2 acre) and was built in 1986.

Quiet Neighborhood

This Sequim home was in perfect condition, even though it is older. The owners kept it maintained fastidiously, so the buyers moved in without any need to update anything.

Carlsborg Home Sold

This Carlsborg home is a very nice medium custom quality home with a large two car garage on a very large lot, all fenced in back for the dogs. The kitchen is what you might call a country kitchen, because it is so large and has a table and chairs in it to boot.

Carlsborg Home

I represented the seller, an estate for the three beneficiaries. This home sold for an incredible price of $210,000. Yea, that was a pretty darn good price, but that’s what supply and demand established.

Sequim Home Close to Town

This cute Sequim home is very close to town, only about a half mile to Safeway. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1,800 square foot home on .23 acres (1/4 of an acre). It is immaculate and has a beautiful back deck for grilling and entertaining. With a modern kitchen and large master bedroom and bathroom, this was a bargain at $295,000.

County Home on 5 Acres

This country home on 5 acres sold for $200,000. It sits at the end of a private road, so there is no traffic at all. It’s an older home, about 40 years old, and the basement is unfinished. The upstairs needs some upgrading as you might imagine, but for the buyer who is a handyman, this is a property he could not have otherwise found at this price.

Country Home

It’s hard to find a country home on 5 acres with any privacy like this, so this was like finding a needle in the haystack for this buyer. I represented the seller.
