We have sold houses long distance before, but typically most people want to come visit and buy in person.
What is your preference?
1st step is to get preapproved for a loan if you want to buy. You can do that in NY now today.
Then determine where you want to live.
Then look at homes in that area online in your price range.
Have us set up appointments when you'll visit, then come and few homes you want to buy.
