This will ensure you are a knowledgeable home buyer prepared to make a confident home buying decision.

Q - I'm going to purchase a property long distance? Is this Possible? What are the steps involved?

A - Purchasing a property can be tough enough in person, but can me a much more daunting task when you are not physically able to inspect the property or be present for closing.  Your Palm Coast Realtor should be experienced with these situations and know how to efficiently handle the purchase and closing process for a customer that is not in town.  Here are some things to consider:

  • The first step is to find that perfect property.  This website is an excellent resource, especially the area info page which has an interactive map and description of all communities in the area with all listings in each community.
  • Once a property has been chosen a decision needs to be made.  Do you book an appointment to view the property?  In some cases you may wish to purchase with a contingency to view the property in a reasonable period, thereby taking the property off the market and effectively "holding" it until you can have a look.  In other cases you may choose to buy without a personal inspection.  While this process can be a little nerve racking, an experienced agent will be able to provide you with many photos, even video if needed to give you a birds eye view of the property.  Also, your agent can help you to look over the property disclosures and even arrange the home inspection so you have as much information as possible.
  • Whether or not you come to town to inspect the property, being present for the closing or settlement is definitely not mandatory.  Most title companies are quite familiar with the "mail away" closing process to those in other states or even other countries.  Most documentation can be sent via email/mail and effectively mailed back.
