Yes, you can buy and sell out-of-state property without leaving home. Contract signing and settlement can be handled via Fax and Fed-Ex.
As a practical matter though, would you WANT to buy a property sight unseen? How would you know what the neighborhood looked like, or what the true condition of the property is unless you see it in person? If a property has been listed several times without a sale, what do the locals who have seen the property know that you don’t?
If you visit the area, see the property and want to buy, then you can do everything else through the mail from the comfort of your own home.
