- Beware of paid versus natural search results when you look for legal information on the Internet. Particularly in the legal field, paid search results (which typically appear above and/or to the side of natural search results, and are usually noted as “sponsored” or “partners”) will likely have more advertising gimmicks than legitimate material. Consumer Reports WebWatch offers these tips on improving the chances that the results you find will be credible.
- If you have questions or are uncertain during any point in the process of selling your home, consult with an attorney or a real estate agent to ensure things progress correctly. To find an attorney who handles real estate matters, check the FindLaw Web site. Make sure you also look at the information under the “Real Estate” tab.
