Relocate to Sequim

It’s impossible not to live in awe of the Olympic Mountains, especially when you see them glistening high above the sea on a cold but sunny winter day. These moments will never fail to take your breath away when you  make Sequim your home.  If that’s not reason enough to relocate here, then let’s talk about the weather in Sequim.

The rainy, dreary days of a Seattle Winter have their reputation of being less than pleasant.  Though it’s only 2 hours away from us, we can assure you Sequim is no Seattle.  It’s a different world up here, filled with dry sunny days, nestled into what many call the “banana”belt”.  The “banana belt” nickname stems from Sequim’s location in the rainshadow of the Olympics.  On average, Sequim gets about 16 inches of rainfall each year, which is about the same as that in Los Angeles.  Combine this great weather with some of the cleanest and freshest air around, and it’s hard to argue with leaving smog-filled cities in favor of the pristine Olympic Peninsula.

Relocate SequimWe truly can’t say enough about the beauty found along the Olympic Peninsula, but there is so much more to Sequim than nature’s abundance.  Sequim also happens to be home to a high number of active older adults, thanks largely to its small but active community.  Sequim is the cultural heart of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley.  Here, you can spend an afternoon shopping in the charming downtown filled with locally owned boutique shops, catch a live theatre performance at Olympic Theatre Arts, or enjoy a delicious meal at one of Sequim’s many restaurants.  Local farms and artisans produce amazing goods throughout the year, and Sequim of course is home to the annual Irrigation Festival and the Lavender Festival, which has become the nation’s premier lavender celebration.

If all of that is not enough, the affordably priced homes, with the median price being $277,434, and access to high quality healthcare in town makes it the ideal community for retired and active adults.  By now, you probably can’t wait to relocate to Sequim, and we haven’t even started talking about the opportunities for outdoor recreation yet!
