Did you see a home online that you fell in love with? You wanted to buy it immediately, but there’s one problem holding you back…. You can’t visit the property in person! Well, there are many people that
actually take the leap of faith, and purchase their home without seeing it in person! And guess what, it was a great decision for them!
Thanks to today’s technology, buying a home without physically seeing it in person, is more common than you think.
If you’re thinking of buying a house “sight unseen,” make sure you follow these guidelines:
1. Find a Real Estate Agent you trust. If you don’t trust your agent to give you a truly honest opinion, then this option is not for you. You need them to be your eyes and ears, and not only tell you the good things, but you need to hear the bad things too.
2. Watch the virtual tour (video). This is the best option, as you can have a thorough look throughout the home, going through room by room. You can easily see things like flooring to air conditioning units mounted on the walls. Also, if the home is being sold furnished, you can have the inventory next to you, as you scan each room.
3. If possible, have a friend take a look for you. If you have a friend you can trust, then let them give you their honest opinion. They know what you like and can tell you first hand, what condition the property is in. Will it need updating, or is it ready to move into?
4. Most important of all: You need to accept the home will not be 100% perfect. There may be small things that you won’t like or that need fixing. As long as you’re prepared, it will work out fine.
Buying a home “sight unseen” is a great option right now. Use the technology that’s out there, to your own benefit. Remember “still images” can be cropped to hide things from view, whereas virtual tours (videos) can show you, even the minutest of detail!
