From Big Sky, Montana, to Kissimmee, Florida, many Americans crave vacation homes. One feature of a vacation house is that it's typically located as far from home as possible, preferably in another temperature zone, landscape, or climate. The worst part about a vacation home? Finding time away from work to fly out to your choice destination to find a home to call your own. There is an answer, however, and more and more home buyers are giving it a go: It's called remote home buying. We've come up with four solid reasons why you might want to buy your next vacation home remotely: 

Location Is No Obstacle

Because you're not investing money in plane tickets or hours flying back and forth between multiple cities, the location of your vacation home isn't limited by time or finances. The world is, quite literally, an option. Odds are excellent that there's a qualified real estate agent available in or nearby the town you're considering. Once you make that connection, your agent will handle the legwork and the heavy lifting. 

You Have Nothing But Time

Because you're not taking time away from your responsibilities at home, there's no need to rush into a decision. Every vacation home your agent recommends can be viewed online or viewed real-time via an app such as Skype. You're free to consider multiple options in the search for your perfect vacation home without investing days or weeks away. 

The Price Is Right

Buying a vacation home in another state or even in another country can save you tons of money. States such as Texas, where land and homes are abundant, offer terrific deals on real estate. You'll score a vacation home here for much, much less than you would near a city such as Washington, D.C. Property taxes are another reason to consider purchasing a vacation home in another area. You might be surprised to learn that the beautiful islands of Hawaii actually offer the lowest property taxes in America. 

The Process Is Easy-Peasy

It's easier to purchase a vacation home remotely than you may realize. Most of the work happens on the other end of the transaction. You don't even have to present for inspections or closing unless you choose to be. Your agent will handle all the nuances of your property purchase. All you have to do is sign documents and wire money. 

When you're ready to invest in a new vacation home, consider buying it remotely. You're going to love the ease and convenience of this long-distance transaction.

I have lived in and loved Western North Carolina since 1964 and I think it is the greatest place to live. I have been in real estate for 35 years and I enjoy helping other people find homes in this area. I am familiar with Buncombe and Henderson counties primarily and some of Haywood and Madison counties. These are the counties that surround Asheville and Hendersonville. Tell me what setting you like and I will help you find it. If you have a house to sell, I can help you there also. Since I show many houses, I am familiar with the values and with what buyers are interested in. I can help you promote your house to the right buyer. When I started 35 years ago, the paperwork was limited and simple, the mortgages had set qualifications and very little variance. It is so much more complex now. I can help you thru the maze. There are mortgages now for almost everyone. Let me help you find the right lender.
