Q: How Do You Buy Property Sight Unseen?
Here are the top three things to consider when buying a house sight unseen.
In this day and age, many people have become more comfortable buying things sight unseen. I’ve even facilitated buyer and seller transactions where people have bought properties without having seen them simply by using their smartphones.
If you’re thinking about buying a property sight unseen, here are the top things to keep in mind.
1. Find a trustworthy agent. Trust is one of the things that people gravitate toward most in life, and in real estate, trust is the key that forms good matches between buyers and agents.
2. Your agent should be technologically savvy. If your agent finds that using technology is challenging, that will make it difficult for you to buy a property sight unseen, no matter their other qualifications. When you choose an agent, they should be someone you trust as well as someone who knows how to navigate certain applications like Google Meetup, Zoom, Facetime, and other video applications.
3. You also need to familiarize yourself with technology. To buy a property sight unseen, you’ll want to make sure that your phone or computer has a good screen, camera, and Wi-Fi signal so that you can pick up all the little nuances that the seller’s agent shows you.
