When buying or selling a home when the economy is running smoothly, and the housing market is normal, you need an experienced guide to help you navigate through the process. Someone to guide you in finding the best pricing strategy for your home. Someone who can help you determine the most advantageous offer on your dream home without you over paying, and staying competitive with other offers.
BUT, this is anything but a normal market right now, being that we’re in one of the greatest health crises our nation has ever seen. The journey consumers take to purchase or sell homes has been drastically changed by this pandemic. Successful navigation of today’s landscape requires more than an experienced guide. Today’s consumer needs a ‘Real Estate Sherpa.’
Google defines Sherpa as “a member of a Himalayan people living on the borders of Nepal and Tibet, renowned for their skill in mountaineering.”, and being skilled at 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. Sherpas act as guides and porters, and do everything from carrying the loads to setting up the camps. They secure climbing routes, fix lines, ferry supplies and guide clients to the top of Everest and other Himalayan peaks.
Just as Sherpas are so much more than just normal guides, this is much more than a normal market.
Today, an average Relator simply will not do. You need a Sherpa. You need a guide who understands how this pandemic has impacted the thoughts and actions of the consumer, and understands the importance of virtual showings, proper safety protocols, e-signing documents. You need a guide who can simplify this process, effectively explaining changes to you and your family. You need an expert to help you make the right decision in these challenging times. To guarantee your journey is safe and successful, find that ‘Real Estate Sherpa’.
