Originally, Kevin and Lourdes Howard were residents of San Francisco when they decided to explore their possible forever home four hundred miles away from Las Vegas. They found themselves drawn to the vibrant community of Las Vegas for its energy, opportunities, and lifestyle. Faced with the challenge of buying a home from afar, they made the bold decision to make an offer sight unseen—a leap of faith that would change their lives forever.

Interview with Kevin & Lourdes: Their Story Unveiled

In an exclusive interview, Kevin and Lourdes share their inspiring journey of buying a house in Las Vegas without seeing it in person. From navigating the virtual homebuying process to trusting their instincts and connecting with the community, their story offers valuable insights and lessons for aspiring homebuyers.

It pays to have a reliable realtor who will help you walk through the process of sight-unseen homebuying. In the case of Kevin and Lourdes, a virtual walkthrough of the property, community, and area they were eyeing greatly helped with their decision-making process. 

Finding your place

For Kevin and Lourdes, the community where their new home is located played a crucial role in their decision-making process. From amenities and outdoor activities to cultural activities and social connections, the sense of belonging and community spirit influenced their neighborhood choice and shaped their vision of what home means to them.

In the summer of 2018, bidding wars on properties were the norm. The Howards stacked the deck in their favor to beat out the competition. They took a risk, went on virtual tours, and communicated digitally. 

Pros of Buying Sight Unseen: Unlocking Opportunities

Buying a house sight unseen offers several advantages, including flexibility, convenience, and the ability to capitalize on opportunities in competitive markets. For Kevin and Lourdes, it allowed them to secure their dream home in Las Vegas without the constraints of time or geography.

Going virtual may not always be the best option, which is why having a trusted realtor will save you time and monetary resources. It takes a lot of courage to buy a property without seeing it before sealing the deal. At the same time, it can be easy and fun with the right agent guiding you every step of the way.

Through their experience, Kevin and Lourdes gained valuable insights into the sight-unseen homebuying process. From staying informed and adaptable to trusting their instincts and maintaining open communication, they share five important lessons that resonate with anyone considering a similar path:

  1. Trust Your Instincts
  2. Stay Informed and Adaptable
  3. Communicate Effectively
  4. Embrace the Adventure

Thinking outside the box surely opens up new possibilities for homebuyers willing to embrace the unknown.
