Is it hard to buy a Lake Martin home from far away?
Our waterfront real estate market here at Lake Martin is a second home market. In fact, Alabama Power estimates that about 80% of waterfront homes here are second homes. Since we are in a rural area here in central Alabama, we get a lot of buyers that are coming from greater than two hours away. Vacation home buyers are typically a more real estate savvy bunch – they have been around the block. They don’t have first time jitters, but there are still a lot of questions to be answered.
That’s one of the fun things about selling real estate here at Lake Martin. As an agent, I am getting people that are coming down to the lake to fulfill a dream or just have some fun. Nevertheless, buying any home can have its stressful moments. Add to that fact that most people are buying from a distance, and sometimes the questions can be overwhelming to say the least. You can’t just take off during your lunch hour to see a home or meet a home inspector.
Please take a second to watch George and Lea in the above video – they will explain their experience with long distance home buying.
I try to make the process as easy as possible by utilizing the latest tech. Click here to read my recent blog post on 3D Tours. Watching home tours on video, text messages, emails, phone calls, research, lots of negotiations, inspections, – buying a home can be a time consuming process. I am willing to do anything I can to help my clients feel great about their purchase. Sometimes I get my best ideas from them, so if you know any, give me a call at the number at the top of this page or contact me through this form. Thanks!
