Buying Properties Sight Unseen via FaceTime/Youtube

Our world has become virtual and real estate has not been left behind in this. Just over 20% of my transactions last year were bought sight unseen via FaceTime, Youtube videos, and listing photos. Almost all of these buyers didn’t see the property in person until after they had closed. 

Beautiful and well priced properties are still selling quickly.. Buyers often don’t have time to fly down and see a property in person before it’s gone under contract. 

How it Works:

  • I schedule a showing on your behalf.

  • Once I get to the property I get a video of the entire home/condo, inside and out. I also get videos of the views and community amenities. I also pay close attention to anything that is important to you such as closet size, kitchen appliances, and how clean the HVAC is. 

  • Some buyers prefer that I do these videos over FaceTime while most like me to take regular videos and upload them to Youtube so they can watch them multiple times. If you choose to go the Youtube route, I create a private link so only you have access to that video. 

Once we make an offer and go under contract we have an inspection contingency where a licensed home inspector goes through the property (inside and out) and sends you a detailed report with pictures. From there we negotiate anything that needs to be fixed.
