- ChatGPT doesn’t know the rules of your brokerage or state association. Make sure any copy you produce using it follows those rules.
- ChatGPT doesn’t get everything right. You’re the expert in your field, so double check everything you produce for accuracy.
- At the time of this publication, ChatGPT’s knowledge is still limited to 2021 data, so it can’t give present day information. This should improve as it continues to learn, but for now, do not count on it for specific, up-to-date data.
