Can You Buy Real Estate in Danbury,CT without seeing it in person?

Real Estate Agent with William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty CT RES.0783448

It is possible to purchase homes from a long distance these days. You can view homes' without physically stepping through the front door of your home until the walkthrough before closing if not later.  With technology available these days, it be can done by using tools such as face-time,skype, zoom electronic meeting, recording movies and sending multiple photos. However, it is not the same as coming through the house on your own. You can see the space better, evaluate the mechanical systems, see how the neighborhood is at different times of the day, and you may see things in the house that are different than my evaluation. I had a client purchase a home electronically, but he is seasoned investor that owns multiple properties but he at least came up to the house to do the building inspection. I had one client almost bid on a house prior to seeing it, but fortunately they were able to come in a few days after they saw the listing online & got the offer singed without hours over them seeing it & loving the house more so than the Internet.

It can be costly to make a few weekend trips up to the Danbury,CT just for the purpose of housing hunting.It may be not possible to come in person.However, buying the wrong home will set you back more than the cost of hotel rooms, meals out and your traveling expenses. It is easier to eat the cost of those expenses versus commission for selling, paying for your lender fees, legal fees, inspections costs, movers etc.Take your time when viewing homes as you want to make sure that you get the best one for your needs and not feel like you have to settle.
