There are ways to amend a contract with a contingency based on you actually viewing the property, so that if you end up seeing it and hate it, you could get out of the contract. I'm not sure if that would be acceptable to the person who is renting/selling the home, but that is definitely what I would try to do in a situation like this.
If you'd like any more help on this, I'd be happy to assist in any way I can!
of lookers. Many agents won't accept an offer without the buyer viewing
it first to avoid accepting an offer and then being told that the buyer
doesn't like it.
