Long Distance Home Buying Advice
These tips for successful long distance house hunting can help you simplify the process, allowing you to step onto the South African property ladder with much more confidence.
With the New Year upon us, many New Year’s resolutions involve turning over a new leaf, moving to a new city and dedicating your time towards achieving a better future.
Whether the move is inspired by employment opportunities or family reasons, long distance house hunting and moving to a new city can feel daunting.
To aid you in your journey of “new year, new me”, we bring you home buying advice to keep in mind when house hunting afar.
Create a Plan
Before the true house hunting process begins, it’s important to have a plan in mind.
This will help speed up the process, allowing you to easily identify the homes that fulfil your needs.
Make a list of your house hunting deal breakers and deal makers, defining the priority of each aspect.
Also identify the type of property that you’re after, such as townhouse complex or freestanding, as well as aspects such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms.
Once you’re happy with the list, it’s time for the fun to begin!
Thanks to the beauty of the internet, the world no longer feels like such a big place.
You’re able to easily explore a new city, potential homes, nearby tourist attractions and much more, all from the comfort of your couch.
You’ll also be able to form a better understanding of the average prices of homes in the area, and which amenities will be on your doorstep.
Social media can also help you connect with people living within the area, providing you with additional resources for making the right decision.

Request Additional Information
Once you’ve done your online research, the next step is to request additional information from the agent.
Providing your contact details allows the agents to get back to you with more information, giving you the change to ask questions and find out everything there is to know.
Floorplans, brochures and financial requirements will make it easier for you to narrow down your long distance house hunting options.
