Buying or Selling a Home? You Need an Expert Kind of Guide

Buying or Selling a Home? You Need an Expert Kind of Guide | MyKCM

In a normal housing market, whether you’re buying or selling a home, you need an experienced guide to help you navigate through the process. You need someone you can turn to who will tell you how to price your home correctly right from the start. You need someone who can help you determine what to offer on your dream home without paying too much or offending the seller with a low-ball offer.

We are, however, in anything but a normal market right now. We are amid one of the greatest health crises our nation has ever seen. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the journey consumers take to purchase or sell a home. To successfully navigate the landscape today, you need more than an experienced guide. You need a ‘Real Estate Sherpa.’

According to Lexico, a Sherpa is a “member of a Himalayan people living on the borders of Nepal and Tibet, renowned for their skill in mountaineering.” Sherpas are skilled in leading their parties through the extreme altitudes of the peaks and passes in the region - some of the most treacherous trails in the world. They take pride in their hardiness, expertise, and experience at very high altitudes.

They are much more than just guides.

This is much more than a normal real estate market.

Today, the average guide just won’t do. You need a Sherpa. You need an expert who understands how COVID-19 is impacting the thoughts and actions of the consumer (ex: virtual showings, proper safety protocols, e-signing documents). You need someone who can simply and effectively explain the changes in today’s process to you and your family. You need an expert who will guarantee you make the right decision, especially in these challenging times.

Bottom Line

Hiring an agent who understands how the pandemic is reshaping the real estate processes is crucial right now. Let’s connect today to ensure your journey to a new home in the Poonos is a safe, successful one and right on track to meet your goals.

I like your suggested verbiage, Barbara and edited the wording of last sentence.  Not sure if minor changes affect SEO but there it is. :))

There are so many facets to a real estate transaction these days that require an expert to guide the process.

So true, Myrl, and no doubt many clients will soon be learning to appreciate local, professional agents even more to navigate the "guidance" issued by each state.

Good morning Kris. The Fram oil filter commercil comes to mind with slight alteration: "you can think you ares saving now and pay later or you can get the advice of an expert and save"! Enjoy your day!

Wayne, nice analogy. Clients now are not only navigating a buy or transaction but learning new rules and guidance in their states.  They are going to be appreciating the local, professional agent even more in the weeks ahead to get through it all with flying colors.
