Would you buy a house site unseen?

Recently I sold an old farm house on 10 acres sight unseen. And in fact I’ve never met the buyers in person. The buyer called me one day and reminded me of an email she had sent me months prior. She told me she wanted to buy a property and would I write it up for her? At my insistence I went to look a property and took a few pictures. The house was a MESS! But unbeknownst to me the buyer had every intention of buying the property regardless. But alas, somebody else beat us to the punch.

After a few more tries ‘we’ found a property. It took a long, long road trip and 100 pictures posted on an internet photo sharing site, and the buyers closed on their new property having never seen it.

Would you dare to do this? Would you buy a house site unseen? Feel free to leave a comment.
