When you finally decide to list your house for sale you may decide you do not want a sign posted in front. While signs are great advertising for those in the neighborhood or driving by who may be looking for a house, and they provide good information for how to find out more about the house, you may decide you do not want a sign. It really is up to you. By not having a sign you may miss out on buyers who are looking in your neighborhood, including neighbors who may have friends or relatives who may be interested. Folks have different reasons for not wanting to post signs. The reasons are as individual as the people involved.

A sign with the name, company and phone number of a real estate salesperson says that a state licensed agent is helping to offer and provide information on a house so that there doesn't need to be any direct contact or communication between seller and buyer. A salesperson should only show prequalified buyers to a house. Otherwise, you run the risk of having a sale fall through or a contract being voided and broken because a buyer cannot obtain a loan or mortgage for it. That's a real waste of time on the part of everyone and is much to be avoided.

An agent can provide other services which can be important and helpful in marketing your house. We would be pleased to tell you about them. Give us a call or send us an email. We're here to help.

Have a great day!
