Acquiring knowledge is a very good thing. In fact, I encourage, as well as educate my clients about the Colorado Springs Real Estate market, including all its intricacies and idiosyncrasies.
Nonetheless, I’ve noticed a “Holiday Inn Express” Syndrome when it comes to some of my clients who are buying and selling real estate.
Sure, MLS data is readily available through several mediums, such as Zillow, Trulia, local real estate sites, etc. And who hasn’t watched HDTV or House Hunters International about how real estate is “supposed” to be conducted internationally? Without doubt these formats can make you feel like those on the Holiday Inn Express commercials who become transformed from being novices into highly skilled experts overnight.
With this said, it practically goes without saying that information-gathering is not equivalent to becoming adept with all the market dynamics within the profession of being a highly skilled Colorado Springs Realtor.
To gather information for purposes of gaining more knowledge is one of the keys to making powerfully impactful decisions. Yet, sometimes information-gathering has a destructive side to its construct. Sometimes it disallows an important connection of trust to happen between the Realtor and his or her client.
The purpose of this blog is not to scold either Realtor or client. Instead, it serves as a reminder that client-gathered information is a partial tool in the real estate process. But more importantly, the highly skilled Realtor possesses the “know-how” with regards to actually getting the real estate transaction process accomplished effectively.
Open communication and placing more trust in the hands of your Realtor is an effective antidote for the Holiday Inn Express Syndrome.
