I think you will get better service from agents if your provide proof of funds. You can then have them do virtual tours and you could visit during the due diligence period. It is always best to see them in person or have a trusted partner on the ground though.

#1 You will need to hire an agent in the cities/area you are looking to buy. During 2020 it was not unheard of for buyers to have an agent preview the properties, take photos, videos to help them make a purchase decision. If you decide to buy a property and place an offer - I highly recommend you visit the property before finalizing the transaction.

You definitely need a local agent that knows the market you are purchasing in and the laws, restrictions, advantages, etc. However many of my investor buyers now feel comfortable purchasing from a distance. We do video showings, inspections and walkthroughs so that they feel comfortable with every aspect of the property without actually setting foot inside.

No, you do not have to physically tour the property. However, it is never a good idea to buy a property sight unseen. You need to physically lay eyes on the property yourself.

You do not have to physically be in the city where you purchase. An agent can take live or recorded walkthrough videos with you if necessary. Once you go under contract, a great inspector can really help you make an educated decision during your option period. All documents can be signed digitally and a mobile notary can always be arranged to meet you anywhere in the world for the closing paperwork.
