This home sale is a great story. First, it is the perfect Sequim home. On 1.38 acres, this 3 bedroom, 2,400 square foot custom home with high coffered ceilings, a three car attached garage, a large single car detached garage, fruit trees, a yard created by a master gardener, and located in a quiet area 4 miles from downtown Sequim, all make this the perfect home for a retired couple. Did I mention it has a gorgeous mountain view? The floor plan is really amazing, too.
But the rest of the story is where it gets interesting. The owner calls me up in the morning about 9:00 a.m. and tells me she is ready to put her home on the market. We had already talked and agreed on a realistic listing price. I told her on the phone that I was headed out the door to show a wonderful couple homes that day, but we would get together later and make a plan. As I showed my buyers homes that day, I realized the home they kept describing was this home, so I drove them past it. They fell in love with it and bought it the next day. I represented the buyers and the seller. Okay, so I got lucky. But isn’t luck just opportunity and preparation meeting?
