Long Island Relocation While Living Out of State

Real Estate Agent with The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803

Can We Relocate To Long Island And Find A Home While Living Out-Of-State?



Moving can be a daunting experience and relocating from state-to-state can certainly be a challenge. Moving out of state is a task that requires some real hard work. 


We find on The North Shore of Long Island that many out-of-state moves are for job opportunities, but also more and more empty-nesters are moving back to Long Island to be near family.


So Can You Relocate To Long Island And Find A Home While Living Out-Of-State...Of course you can by working with Lawrence And Sheila Agranoff, Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker and Licensed RE Salesperson.


With the internet and online searches it's so much easier than ever before to find another house outside the area you are familiar with. Search area demographics, schools, weather, neighborhoods and more is easily available.  


However, there are some websites that do not have accurate real estate information. For example, we received a call from a potential buyer who was very interested in a listing we had that sold almost 2 years ago. This buyer actually called 3 other Real Estage Agents who in turn called us to see if we had an exclusive on it because it wasn't listed on MLS. No, it was not listed now and she somehow saw an old listing on one of the well-known (?) sites. Some information a buyer is viewing may not be current and can be incorrect.

  • So, how can you best search for a home from across the county?
  • How can you tell exactly what you are looking at?
  • How do you know if a certain neighborhood is the best choice?
  • Should you use a Professional Full-Time Realtor®? YES YES YES!

Some companies have a relocation department and they will assign a Real Estate Agent to you, but what if you are doing this on your own?


A Realtor® who is very visible on the internet and is showing up again and again on "google searches" will probably be your greatest advantage when moving into a new area. But, not all Realtors® are created equal.


The knowledge that Real Estate Agents have about the neighborhoods, prices, the time, energy and effort they are willing to spend with you in finding your new home is paramount. Some Agents get personally involved every step of the way, while others just send you listings and hope you'll find something you like. Many only practice on a part-time basis and they might not have the time or effort to give you the attention you deserve.


Remember...look for commitment.


The best thing you can do for yourself as well as for your Agent, is to create a list of what you are looking for in a home and what you Do Not want. Decide what's the most important features for you and your lifestyle. Afterall, you don't want to waste your time or the Agent's time on homes you don't want to see.  Now is also the time to make sure you are qualified for the price of the home you are considering.


So, Go Ahead and start your list now  ~ And Happy Moving!

Nice post, Sheila and Larry, on how to look for homes long-distance. Having done it, myself, numerous times before the age of the internet, I know how daunting a task that can be. I remember flying every other weekend on Thursday nights from NYC to London and to Paris to house hunt and the flying back overnight on Sunday night to go straight to work on Monday. This went on for several months.
