Buying A House Online: Really?

Have you bought a house online yet? It is convenient and much easier than one may think. You can do all of these things from the comfort of your computer, and in your bathrobe:

  • Find a realtor.
  • Find a home, look at photos, panoramic view, videos.
  • Process real estate paperwork.
  • Find a mortgage banker.
  • Process mortgage paperwork.
  • …and much more!

Do you have to buy a home online? Of course not, but it may be something that you may want to consider, especially with the convenience of the internet, the geographic limitations, and the cost of gas. Speaking from experience, some transactions performed this way have been the most profitable. 🙂

    We actually want to buy your house, not list it for sale or tie it up indefinitely. We won’t waste your time with empty promises or by giving you false hopes. If we can buy your house we will tell you in a matter of days, if not we will give you some suggestions on how you might be able to sell it quicker.

      That sounds like a good option for someone who may need to sell their house soon. Thanks for suggesting that.

    Thank you for your article (and please excuse me, English is not my mother tongue), do you write a second part to cover the subject entirety? In all cases, it’s a topical issue that will have to be treated in this way more often. Regards, Roger.

    When it comes to buying house, I prefer a more traditional route.

      Hi Paola – I definitely understand the more traditional approach 🙂 Personally, we have bought a few houses online and never regretted any of them (helps that we made money on all of them).

    I’m not sure if I can buy a house online.

    • deborah Mar 24, 2015 @ 13:54

      Yes, it is tricky, Max. We have made most of our “large sums” of money doing it, but you do have to approach it in the right way, for the house purchase to succeed.

    Yes, buying a house online is the most convenient and easier thing. When it comes to mortgages, don’t think about your poor credit score because we understand the fact that getting a home loan with a good credit score is plain sailing. However, with a bad credit history, a home loan is something unimaginable from even the best financing companies in Canada.

      Very true. Buying the house online may be easy enough, but the financing can be challenging, especially in this day and age.
