Tip 1: Searching for your Realtor.
Tip 2: Reach out to them and make sure they reach out to you.
Tip 3: A good agent is going to find out as much as possible about you; both your real estate needs and your personal needs.
Tip 4: Make sure that you work with agents that have you set up on your own personal property organizer that is notifying you of listings that meet your criteria as they come on the market.
Tip 5: You want to be working with agents that live and work in the general area that you're looking at so that they will be able to go out and preview homes that you are interested in.
Tip 6: Since you are buying from out of state, you have special needs. Look for someone that will help you find a hotel, arrange childcare, rent a car, recommend restaurants, etc..
Tip 7: Agents who really care and understand your needs as an out of state buyer, will go as far as offering to pick you up at the airport, or your hotel if that makes it more convenient for you.
Tip 8: Work with someone who will spend at least a half day getting you oriented to the area in general.
Tip 9: On your house hunting trip, you may see dozens of homes and it can quickly become a blur. Make sure they have a system in place that will categorize your houses into yes's, no's and maybe's to help you remember the ones you really liked and why.
Tip 10: Once you've found the house you want to make an offer on, make sure your agent does their due diligence determining the terms of the offer.
