Homebuyer Advice on Purchasing an Orange County Relocation Home

Posted on September 28, 2010. Filed under: First Time Buyer help, Making Life Easier, Orange County Real Estate | Tags: , |

I recently closed a sale on a fantastic Orange County relocation home, which in this case happened to be a flip. To my delight, the buyer was extremely pleased with both the house and the service provided by yours truly. Always plenty of decisions to be made when making a home purchase; even more so when jumping to an entirely new locale.

Great feeling knowing I could make it a smooth transition. Then I figured, hey, the buyer would want to do likewise for other people purchasing an Orange County relocation home. So I asked what they would advise folks in this situation. Here’s what they had to say on several key topics –

  • Online Searches – Great for info gathering, but don’t rely solely on photos. Many times they can present a picture that’s much prettier than the reality. A lot can be masked by touch-ups, the right angle, etc. It’s very important to visit the actual home before you fall in love.
  • Working With a Relocation Company — It’s your right as a home buyer to know what’s going on. So keep after them to make sure they’re following through with everything they’re supposed to be doing.
  • Buying a Flip — Confidence is the main factor here. Most flips feature recent improvements, so there’s a major reason to feel good about them. Overall, you want to make sure you’re completely confident you’re getting the right house at the right price.

Good advice. All of it. If you’d like to learn more about purchasing an Orange County relocation home, I’m ready to help. Feel free to call, text, email, or tweet me.  I can be reached at 949.338.7408, angie@askangie.com,  @AngieWeeks or @WeeksTeam. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
