I know it had to be done before, but how often? Has anyone ever sold a home without the buyer seeing the home for themselves in person?
Yes lots of people buy homes without seeing them first. I have sold many to my clients without them seeing it. People buy homes for different reasons. really it would depend on the nature of the investment. Is it a buy to Rent property? or is it a property you wish to occupy yourself?I know it had to be done before, but how often?

You don't do any of that. There is a way to invest in properties in markets that offer you FIRSTLY and most importantly protection over your equity and secondly great returns on your investment. They do everything for you, get you a mortgage, prepare the contracts, rent it out, maintenance etc. They even help with the resale.Absolutely crazy - if you cant visit the property how would you expect to manage tenants, future sale, etc.
It is an interesting question, why do mortgage companies not have something in the small print to say you need to have seen the property in person? I presume it is fear that they will lose business?
Tricky one, as when you take out a mortgage it is your responsibility to cover the payments.
