The Home Buying Process

Giving Group recognizes buying (or selling) a home is one of life’s major events. Albeit an exciting event, the process can be fraught with stress and packed with jargon, forms and decisions most people are not used to evaluating on a daily basis. First time homebuyers (sellers), seasoned buyers (sellers) and investors all benefit when choosing a licensed real estate professional to represent and guide them through a transaction. A licensed Realtor® will serve as an expert guide with up-to-date experience and market knowledge, provide objective information and opinions; serve as your sounding board for the emotional aspects of the transaction; and bring market negotiation experience.
