long-distance house hunting

As you can imagine, long-distance house hunting can be very challenging. It’s difficult to get a “feel” for certain neighborhoods or to casually drive-by homes for sale if you’re in a different city or state.

Many homebuyers have no choice. Perhaps you were transferred or took a new job in a different state and your relocation is time-sensitive. You must find a house as quickly as possible.

Here are four tips to effectively house-hunt from far away:

  1. Identify your needs – Figure out what your wants and needs are (Three bedrooms, 2 full baths, large backyard, etc.). Your agent can help find homes for sale that meet those wants and needs.
  2. Research the area – Do as much investigation on the community and neighborhoods in that area. This can give you a better idea of desirable locales.
  3. Use a local real estate agent – Find an agent in the area in which you plan to move. A local agent can answer any questions about the area and provide knowledge-based real estate guidance.
  4. Plan a visit – Plan a visit to explore the area and meet with your agent. Your real estate agent should be able to schedule showings to homes that meet your needs and are within your budget.
