Tips for Buying a Home Unseen
It may come as a shock that many people purchase a home before ever setting foot inside. These buyers may be moving to a new country or city far away, or they may not have the time
or resources to visit for a home search before the big move. Not everyone has the option (or the desire) to rent for a few months while they find a permanent home in their new location. Most homebuyers would prefer to purchase a house before they arrive, so they can move their belongings and quickly get settled into their home.
There are a few things our real estate team will do to make the process more manageable if you need to purchase a house unseen. The first step is to participate in a virtual consult with one of our agents who specializes in home purchases. During the consultation, discuss your circumstances and that you’ll need them to help vet potential properties for you. Our agents will be able to provide you with a link to a virtual tour if it’s offered, or schedule a meeting where they can walk you through the house via FaceTime or another video-based app. This will help you feel like you’re there in person and give you the chance to ask the agent about any potential issues that may pose a problem in the future. You’ll also be able to see any features that you love, which will help you make your final decision.
Another great option is to have a family member or friend who lives in the area stop by a few open houses or take a tour with one of our agents, of any homes that you’re interested in. It’s a great idea to involve someone that you know and trust, to help spot any red flags or deal-breakers you should be made aware of before signing on the dotted line.
When the time comes for you to move in, be prepared for the unexpected. There will always be a few things that you didn’t expect when you’ve purchased a home unseen. However, make the
best out of the situation and stay positive. It really is possible to find your dream home, even if you can’t see it before closing.
