How can a seller sell an out-of-state property without having to be there?

I am trying to sell an out-of-state property without having to go there.  Can anyone give me some advise?

All you need to do is to select an agent where the property is located and hire him or her for the job. Ask questions as to how long selling in the area.

Give someone you trust power of attorney. That's what I'm doing.

I had an out of state seller, and the title company had a notary in their new state go to their house and sign all the documents.

I agree, you dont have to give power of attorney, the closing company where the property is located can assist you with where to go when needed. Good luck

We sold out of state a few times.

Like Marci said above, you just go to a title co. in your town and the notary will take care of the closing and settlement docs.

Its easy. Easier then having to live in the house while its on the market!!

The title company can mail out the closing packet to you and like Marci said you just have to get a notary to sign it. I had a client in the military and he has to close while in Japan. Title mailed him the packet and he went to the embassy to get everything notarized and sent it back. DONE.

The trick is going to be finding a good agent cuz your not there to keep tabs on the whole process.
