If you live in one state, but are trying to buy a home in another state, you’ll face some obvious challenges. There’s certain steps that you can take to help you get through the home buying process in another state. Whether you’re buying a vacation home, or are in a complete transition, you’ll need to follow a few steps to make life easier for you. 


Know How Much Time You Have


First, you’ll need to ask yourself when you’re planning to move. If you have flexibility and are planning a trip to the new state before you need to move, that paints a much different picture than a more rushed move. Consider:


  • The time it will take to sell your current home
  • When the closing will be on the new home


Keep that timeline in mind.


You’ll definitely want to hire a realtor to handle everything for you on both ends when you’re in this situation. A Realtor’s knowledge and experience is definitely worth it to help you.


Get Your Finances In Order


You’ll need to apply for a loan on the home you’re buying in the new state. You should start by getting pre-approved for a mortgage in that state. You don’t want all of your important paperwork to be buried in the midst of packing and moving. Also, you’ll need to have that loan secured before you even head to the new state to close on the home. Everything should be in order. This situation may be more challenging for you than a typical home purchase. Since big purchases affect your credit score, you’ll need to hold off on buying a car, furniture, or any major appliances that you may need. 


Get As Much Information As You Can


As a buyer who is from out of state, you’ll need to do your homework. Maybe you have visited the state many times before. Perhaps you know nothing about it. The more you know ahead of time, the easier that your transition will be. You’ll need to find recommendations about which neighborhood to search in. You’ll also want to learn a bit more about the lifestyle the area provides for activities like dining, entertainment, and recreation. You can learn a lot in the internet, but talking to locals- even a local realtor- can help you to find the right spot to live in. 


Find The Right Realtors


You’ll need to find the right realtors in both your home state and the state that you’re moving to. The seller’s agent will assist you in getting your old home sold. From marketing the listing to home showings to sending you all of the paperwork that you’ll need to sign, a seller’s agent is very valuable to someone who needs to move out of one state and into another. 


The buyer’s agent can help you in your new state, communicating with you on new listings and advising you on the neighborhoods that you’ll be the most happy in. Hiring these two realtors may be one of the most important steps in your feat of moving across two different states.


With the resources that are available online, moving from state-to-state isn't as hard as it may seem. Do your research for a smooth transition. Happy moving!

Attention Antique Home Lovers...Welcome Home! This 200+ year old post and beam is just waiting for your final touches, big hugs and some TLC! Beams were hand-hewed in the early 1800 from primeval forests. The center bents are constructed of 30 foot hand-hewed 12 by 12 beams fully exposed. Some of the boards that make up the downstairs ceilings are nearly 30 inches wide pine and irreplaceable in today lumber industry. The floors throughout the house are wide pine boards all original except for the kitchen and great room which were updated/built in 1993. NH historians suggest that the trees that build this house escaped the 1700 clear-cut timber that went to support Englands ship yards. The open concept kitchen/ living area is perfect for entertaining. Stroll outside with your coffee to the peaceful backyard, or grab a comfy seat in the family room next to the floor to ceiling field stone fireplace...did I mention this room has radiant floor heat! This home has all the charm expected from an Antique Colonial. Come take a look!
