Know Before Going

Before you take the time to travel for a weekend of house tours, be as specific and clear regarding what you want. If you’re not ready to work with a real estate or rental agent yet, make sure you’ve made a list of needs and wants for your potential home. Go online to see what listings may be available for viewing while you’re visiting and research corresponding neighborhood values.

If you are working with a professional agent, don’t be shy about emailing and calling them often. Send them your pros and cons list and ask lots of questions. That way, during your visit to browse potential houses, you only are browsing places which conceivably could be winners. A great agent will narrow the field for you, so they aren’t wasting your time with things you do not really want.

Friends of Friends

One way to collect the best information about a new city is through your social network. Even if you do not have an immediate family member or friend in your area, you probably know somebody who does.

As you have any conversations about the move, let folks know you are looking to purchase a house. You may be shocked by how many of your friends actually know somebody who sells real estate or who installs flooring or knows all about the new houses in the market.

The Interwebs

If you appreciate more first-hand research, the web is loaded with resources to help in the research.
Zillow offers sale listings, FSBO (for sale by owner) houses, new construction, foreclosures, and rentals. Also, they provide “zestimates” of not just your possible property’s value, yet also the ones around it. Redfin and Trulia provide similar services.

Does walkability rank really high on that must-have list? Then you definitely will want to check out every community’s walk score to gain a feeling for how pedestrian-friendly it actually is.

If you have children, schools are a make-or-break proposition with every home you consider. Visit for all types of feedback.

Scope out all real estate businesses you are considering through Better Business Bureau to assist you in avoiding outright scams and unethical agents.

Utilize City-Data to browse various statistics on different places. Their community forum is an excellent place to obtain community-sourced answers to questions.

Though Google’s street view option might display images which are out-of-date by a few years, it ought to provide you a general idea of what a region looks like. Visit digital signature and then  Google Maps, browse the address of your choice then drop the yellow person icon onto the street right in front of it. Now, it’s possible to virtually walk around the community to gain a sense of whether or not it might feel like home.

As you finally locate that ideal space in your new city, Moishe’s is ready to help you. They are ready to move you into your new place with your sanity and your bank account intact.
