Partner with a real estate agent you trust; one who knows their market and puts your interests at the top of their list.
Finding your place to vacation, your rental property, or your new primary residence is difficult if you’re hundreds or thousands of miles away from where you want to buy. How do you find a property in your budget and in a neighborhood that meets the items on your wish list? The fact is, shopping for a home when you’re out of state will always include additional stresses, but adding a trusted real estate agent to your team can eliminate many of the problems you would have to figure out alone.

There’s a lot of general information online about this year’s housing market. You may have read from the National Association of Realtors website that the average home listing remains on the market for 39 days. What does this mean to an out of state home buyer? General facts will only get you so far. Your local real estate agent will give you specifics about the area you want live. Orchid Realty can help you understand details related to taxes and fees, home values, and price changes in Southwest Florida. For instance, new construction and new business growth is creating new desirable locations to call home in our area. This is making it advantageous to buy in areas where outdated satellite images and street views might show only a tree line. Our page on new construction in Southwest Florida is regularly updated, and we recommend keeping it as a reference.
