I needed either surgery or a bag of ice. That’s what I learned online after I came home from a run with a sore knee. I didn’t expect to find a miracle cure with a few keystrokes, but I’d hoped for better guidance than those extremes.
That’s what happens on the Internet. An algorithm offers a convenient way to narrow down all the available webpages, but it doesn’t necessarily connect you with the right source.
Think about looking for a house online. You’ll find plenty of real estate websites, but the information they provide can be overwhelming—and maybe even wrong.
Are the homes listed for sale still on the market? Is the asking price correct? What’s the actual value of that property?
These questions and many others require professional help for an accurate answer. The best way to make a confident, informed buying decision is with help from a REALTOR® in your community. Online or in person, a Texas REALTOR® is the only trusted source for real estate data and guidance.
Don’t trust such a big financial decision to the Internet. And don’t trust it for medical advice either. A doctor said my knee will be fine with simple strengthening exercises—no ice or surgery needed.
