For Buyers


Buying a home can be a very stressful process. Whether you are a first time home buyer or an investment pro, we make sure our clients are well taken care of from start to finish. Gingerstate Realty Group offers a free buyer consultation to go over your goals. After the consultation we set you up on a customized home search. Once you find a home that you would like to see, we make the appointment and show you the property. If you decide you love the property and would like to make an offer great! We can write the offer and negotiate on your behalf. If not, that’s ok too! We will keep looking until you find the perfect home to fit your needs.

We manage the process for you from start to finish. You will always know what is going on. We can refer lending partners and other home professionals to make the process as easy as possible.

Before closing, Gingerstate Realty Group coordinates with all of our clients to make sure their utilities are set up and all questions are answered before the closing paperwork is signed.
