IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY A HOME WHILE TRAVELING?
Although most people don’t aspire to buy a home while traveling out of town, or buying a home in Martinez from their living room in Chicago, it can be done. Home sales don’t have to pause because you find yourself in the hospital, or have an emergency trip. Yes, it still requires your involvement, but is easier than you might have thought.
WHAT IS A COURTESY CLOSE?
A Courtesy Closing can help you when buying or selling an out of town home. It’s a service offered by mortgage, title and escrow companies to help people who are unable to travel to be at the closing themselves.
There is a cost involved, and it can often be rolled into your mortgage or escrow fees. You will have to finalize the exchange from the courtesy closer to you in person at a later date. But you probably planned on seeing your new house in person anyway!
If you’re moving to a new city, this allows you to reduce the stress of moving by closing on your new home before you even leave your old city. Or you’ve already moved and are finalizing the sale of your old home. Imagine being able to move directly into your new home instead of staying in a hotel while waiting to close. This can help you save money on travel, hotel rooms and storage fees.Read more about IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY A HOME WHILE TRAVELING?
