how to buy a home online

Are you thinking about buying a home online? Let us be your guide!

The new reality we are now living in has us changing how we live in so many ways. Not even the process of buying a house needs to be done in person anymore. A new home can now be selected, every detail customized, and then even purchased using a more convenient and safer online method. 

The process is fairly similar to the traditional one:

The first thing to consider is affordability. A professional lender’s assistance is needed to determine if the home you desire is within your loan eligibility. All documentation needed can be safely submitted using online portals specially designed for this purpose. 

The next step is browsing your new home online according to your search parameters, such as number of rooms, geographic area, new or old constructions and such. 

COVID-19 has made the traditional home touring system unappealing. Instead, safer online options for touring your new home have been developed: a virtual tour, also called Matterport tour, provides a very realistic experience and allows the user to zoom in on specific details. A virtual tour of your new home’s surroundings is also possible by using “satellite mode” on Google Maps. 

Finding exactly what you want online is just a matter of time. Appointments with Realtors or new home sales consultants are easily held with online tools like Zoom, Duo and FaceTime, among others. 

Finally, time to close the deal. The closing paperwork has evolved too through the use of platforms like Docusign, where you can legally sign every document required from home, using a digital signature. Remember: working with professionals through this whole process guarantees satisfactory results.
