How to Buy a Home in Another State

June 13, 2014

Moving is hard. Moving to another state is even worse. I’ve made two interstate moves in my adult life, and they’ve ranked #1 and #2 for My Worst Moves Ever. I did learn some things along the way, though. Perhaps the most important lesson is to find an excellent realtor in your new area. If you don’t know anyone in your destination state, find an excellent realtor in your home state who can refer you to someone who may specialize in relocations, or someone who is super tech-savvy, which can help when you’re communicating long distances.

A realtor who is comfortable with Skype, FaceTime, or Google hangouts can show you homes without you even being there.
