Buying a house comes with a lot of decisions, lengthy to-do lists and all the excitement that comes with a move. If you happen to be doing this process long-distance, each of these can grow into “what in the $#!% am I doing?!” moments. There are ways to approach a long-distance move that can help you narrow down your choices, limit your tasks and create more positive excitement. No one knows that approach better than the Dani Beyer Real Estate team!
Let’s take one of our recent Michigan clients for example. In preparation for a long-distance move, this Michigan family only had a few days to check out houses in the Kansas City area. Our rock star team was able to put a game plan in place to show a crazy amount of homes in just two days (talk about a well-deserved margarita…)! After signing a contract and heading back to Michigan, it was up to our team to handle all of the to-do list items associated with closing on a home. Would you know it, that contract fell through and we went back to square one (cue the next margarita). But we weren’t done yet! At Dani Beyer Real Estate, we are committed to our clients. If that means Facetiming with our out-of-state buyers in order to show them more homes, then so be it. That’s exactly what we did and we were able to help that Michigan family close on the home of their dreams!
So, what are some of the tips for families looking to buy a house long-distance? As you can tell by our little short story above, we know a thing or two about that.
Get connected with a good realtor. We’ll save you the headache and simply say “Give us a call!” As a Top 10 real estate agent for residential resale sales across the ENTIRE Kansas City metro (out of 9,600 agents), I’d say we’re pretty good at what we do.
Make a list of priorities. This is true of any home buying experience, but it’s particularly important when you have our team looking on your behalf in another city or state. Making this list will also help narrow your search so that you’re not overwhelmed with too many choices. Maybe a great school district tops your list, or maybe limiting commute time is the most important factor. Whatever it is, our team is here to help you find that perfect house!
Do a little research. Become more familiar with an area by doing some online research. Before zeroing in on an area, check statistics like crime rate, school ratings and how long your commute to work will be. Take the time to find out the pros and cons of any area you’re considering. But don’t worry, we won’t leave you hanging! Our agents are Kansas City pros and will assist you every step of the way as you identify your areas of interest.
If you’re relocating to the Kansas City area, take the stress out of a long-distance move with Dani Beyer Real Estate. We can certainly help you determine the best neighborhood for your new home and then zero in on that perfect house for you!
