Remote Real Estate Search Tips & Tools

  1. Neighborhood: Many neighborhoods are connected by local publications and social media groups on Facebook and Instagram. You’ll discover activities, happenings, and residents’ likes and concerns.
  2. Google it: Take a walk down almost any street with Google Street View and get a virtual look at the neighborhood.
  3. Data points: Use websites like Yelp and City-Data to gain insights into home prices, livability, reviews on local amenities and more.
  4. Local listings: Check out other property listings on Zillow or Trulia to get a full idea of an area’s typical style of home and the local real estate market.
  5. Agent insights: Talk to the listing agent for any property you’re interested in to learn more about the neighborhood and surrounding homes.
  6. Edudation: Research area schools using Niche or GreatSchools. The higher they score, the better for local property values and the easier it will be to lease a rental property.
  7. Crime stats: Likewise, the safer the neighborhood, the higher the property value. Research area crime rates with resources like Crime Reports and Area Vibes.
