If you're looking to buy a new home, there's no reason you should be limited by your geographic area. In today's digital world, buying a home in another city, another state or even in another country has never been easier or more convenient. Additionally, when you buy a home remotely, you're not limited by property values in your own area. This may be especially beneficial to home buyers who currently live in high-value areas but who are looking to downsize or to lower their monthly mortgage payments.

By conducting your home search remotely, you can find the most house for the lowest price, regardless of where it's located. We've compiled the top three reasons why you might want to consider conducting your next home search from the comfort of your easy chair.

Moving Closer to Family

Getting out and on your own may have been a dream right out of college, but once you begin having children of your own, and work responsibilities begin piling up, having family living just down the street can be a lifesaver. Moving closer to family may also be more convenient for home buyers whose parents are aging and increasingly in need of help. By conducting your home search remotely, you can view all available homes near loved ones without ever leaving your house. 

Relocating for Your Career

You've worked hard for your career, and the most irresistible promotions often involve relocation. When the time comes, you won't have to trust the company to find you suitable accommodations. With a remote home search and the help of a local real estate agent, you can easily find the home of your dreams regardless of where work sends you. 

Purchasing an Investment Property

Flipping houses requires know-how, experience, and a large serving of luck. And when you find that perfect property that's selling for peanuts, timeliness matters. When it's not possible to fly out and look at a prospective income property, buying remotely is the only other option. Better still, it gets your foot in the door fast -- maybe even before local investors have time to make an offer. 

If you've been thinking of moving out of state, across town, or to the other side of the world, consider doing a remote home search to see what pops up. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to work with an experienced real estate agent over the phone or through email. You may find that housing values in your target area are much more affordable than they are where you're currently living, and that's a win-win for everyone involved, regardless of why you've decided to buy.

Business Approach: As your Agent and Broker, my job is to assist you in achieving the goals of your transaction (price, timing, etc..). I will do my best to help you find the right property for you and your family as a Buyer, or present and market your property effectively as a Seller. I have expertise in negotiating the best price and terms, and guide the process and paperwork to a successful conclusion. Unlike many agents I do not represent both Buyer and Seller in the same transaction (dual agency, or double-ending). I cannot effectively give both parties the benefit of my experience if I try to represent both at the same time.
