When you are lying at home in bed at night, do you feel like your heart is in another place?
Should be living in the mountains away from it all, or you should be able to hear the ocean breeze from your window at night?
If this sounds like you, the best way to take care of these feelings may just be to buy a second home that is out-of-state and in your dream location.
We have a few needed tips for you if you are considering the idea of a second home:
1. Connect with a Real Estate Agent – there is no need to go rouge. A real estate agent that is familiar with the area will know all of the best listings that are on and off the market. They will be able to set you up with showings and give you the inside knowledge of the best areas to buy in.
2. Video or Picture Tour Homes – use the resources that are right at your fingertips to begin searching for houses and finding out what you like and don’t like in your area. Most homes have a number of pictures on the internet and some homes will have video tours as well.
If there are not sufficient images online, you can even ask your realtor to Skype with you while they are on the phone, so you can get a better idea of the inside.
3. Find a Lender – if you are going to need a second mortgage, find a lender that can work with you on your out of state purchase. These lenders will help you figure out how much you can afford and will help you close on the house of your dreams.
