If you’ve taken a new job or have been relocated to another state, then you may find yourself in a situation in which you’ll need to buy a new house in that state. Buying a house from another state can be a real challenge, which is why it’s important that you find a local real estate agent who will be able to help you. The following are a few tips to help you find a local real estate agent that can help you find a house to buy in an area you’re probably unfamiliar with:

  • Look for an agent with experience – Experience matters. It means that they will feel comfortable helping you even though you’re out of state. It also means that they will have a more established network within the area that they can rely on to find properties in the neighborhood you’re interested in. 

  • Look for an agent local to the area you want to buy in – When researching real estate agents in the area, be sure to use the keyword for the city or town you’re looking to move to. Not only do you want to make sure that they are living in that area, but that they are operating out of that area as well.

  • Ask for referrals – More specifically, ask for referrals from homeowners who bought houses in the area you’re looking at. Contact these referrals and ask them about their experience working with the agent. You could even ask the agent if they have any referrals from anyone who came in from out of state.

Buying a house from out of state can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be if you have the right real estate agent.
