We bought a house online sight unseen

In a completely different part of the country.  So excited. 

        So we live in the PNW now. Decided to leave the west Coast for various reasons. 

Found a beautiful house in NE Louisiana. Saw photos on Realtor. Com.        Fabulous house and price. 

Pulled the trigger, and it's locked in as ours.

  We are flying out tomorrow to view it , and take some vacation time to explore the area. 

So excited to explore a different part of the country.

Good  Luck to you.  I hope the house is as seen in the pictures.  Last week NBC did a story about people buying home sight unseen and not getting what they expected. 

 

I hope it is your dream home and you like the area.

My parents bought their house here in NM sight unseen, just from photos.  They never saw it until they and the moving van arrived.  They always loved it and never regretted the decision. 

 

If I may ask, why did you choose NE Louisiana?

I assume you had an inspection on the property before purchasing it?

WOW! I find this so very interesting...and daring. Please keep us posted. I'm familiar with both areas. I know NE Louisiana like the back of my hand and we lived on the coast of Oregon for a brief time. Enjoy your new adventure!

This was my question too. You can't necessarily see roof problems or foundation issues or termites in a picture.
