Long Distance Home SearchOctober 7, 2015
Whether you are moving across the country, or shopping for an investment property in Destin, you’ll soon find that buying a home long distance isn’t nearly as difficult as it used to be albeit, it does have its challenges. The good news is, our agents at RE/MAX Southern are used to itÂ and ready to help you navigate through these “uncharted” waters. For smooth sailing, follow these tips from our expert agents:
(1) Go Surfing: Web surfing that is. Local chamber sites can provide real and accurate information about the cost of living while police department sites can give you details regarding the city’s crime rate. And, if you shop for homes for sale in Destin, Niceville, Fort Walton Beach or the surrounding areas on REMAXSouthern.com, you can gatherÂ specific neighborhood information that you can’t find anywhere else.
(2) Think Beyond the Pictures: Take a virtual tour or the home or use Google Maps to get a bearing on the neighborhood itself and even certain city features.Â
(3) Visit Strategically: If possible, try to plan a short visit to explore the area. If that area is here, you’ll likely want to stay a little longer which is also something our agents can help you with (just ask them about condo rentals in Destin and they’ll set you up with our friends at Southern Vacation Rentals). While you’re in town, you can schedule showings and tours that will help you maximize your time and find the perfect property!
