I have inspected a few homes purchased from out of country or state. An inspection is piece of mind that the home has no major defects. Most homes have at least some minor maintenance issues. A simple problem now could be major later on. Feel free to contact me anytime.

the whole deal could be performed as a mail away to the buyer, make sure you use a reputable agent so you get what you bought and it is closed properly.

Absolutely.....it is also helpful if you have a friend or relative nearby to rely on being your eyes and ears from afar. It's not advisable to purchase anything "sight unseen!" However, we purchased our first Florida home without seeing it and everything worked out....mainly because we had worked extensively with an agent that knew and understood out vision. It's still unrecommended....

Most certainly!!! We deal with many foreign buyers who purchase properties either site-unseen or properties that have put under contract during a trip to the US and close while back home overseas. All closing documents and the transfer of funds are handled electronically without the need to purchase airfare or make a trip to the US just to sign documents. If there is a particular property you are interested in purchasing, please let us know and we will be happy to assist.
