Digital overload is endless information, is it too much information?

Digital overload is endless information, is it too much information?

We live in an age of technology, which is constantly evolving at an increasing pace.  We have access to unlimited information at our fingertips. When it comes to buying and selling remember to simplify your experience.

While this data can be an important and a valuable resource, is it always a good thing?  Too much information can cloud the reason behind a move? It is better to have a ‘feel’ of a property and whether it really suits you and your family needs?  Have your checklist of important values and don’t get distracted by analytics. Sometimes you can miss what is most important – the feel and emotion of a home.

When all is considered, can you trust all the data out there?  A valuer calls an agent to tell them the accurate sale of a house, even when they have enough statistics and algorithms to value a property themselves. We do know valuations are an ‘estimated worth of something’, and definitely are not always accurate.

We feel balance is important. Having relevant data and supporting information should be measured by your personal requirements and, most importantly your emotional response to a property.
