Buying a home in your own state is an exciting prospect, but it is often fraught with difficulty because the search for just the right home can sometimes go on for a while. Taking that into consideration, you should know that there are some real-estate agencies that have numerous branches in several states. If you are open to buying a home from one of these multi-state real-estate agencies, then you may have stumbled on a home buyer's dream. Here are just a few of the perks to buying a home from such a real-estate agency.
Your Agent Can Browse the Listings for Hundreds, Even Thousands of Available Homes
Every home listed with a multi-state agency is accessible by the company's agents. What that means for you is that your agent can plug in your dream-home requirements and search the agency's massive listing data bank. This quickly narrows down the house listings and shows you and your agent exactly where these homes are located. Then you can decide whether you want to see a home in your own state or visit another state and see the homes that interest you there.
You Can Turn Your Keys Back in to the Agency in Exchange for a House in Another State
Let's say you settle on a house in your home state but then find that you have to relocate to another state. When your real-estate agency has holdings and property in that state, you can go through the same channels to sell your house while simultaneously buying another house in your relocation state. This is akin to renting a home and then turning in the keys after the agent has found a new home for you. Additionally, the "trading up" or "trading down" processes within these agencies are very similar.
You Can Request a Custom-Built Home
Real-estate agencies like Fischer Homes offer buyers another multi-state option. This option is all about creating and building a custom home for you in the holding state of your choosing. For example, Fischer Homes operates out of Kentucky, Ohio, Georgia, and Indiana. You choose the state and the property location in these states and then sit down with a company architect to design your perfect home. If at any time you change your mind about the location or change a detail about your home design, the company can accommodate those changes to make sure you are completely satisfied with your new home and where you will be living.
