Real Estate Signs

 

Michelle David, broker-manager at RE/MAX Vision, serves Cranford and Kenilworth real estate clients. Here are some tips from Michelle about real estate signs.

 

Open Houses

 

An open house sign is a roadmap. However, it should not impossible to follow! Check with the municipality to see if open house signs are permitted before you set up the open house. In some towns in New Jersey, only one sign is permitted. It is better to be sure than get a fine or have your expensive sign taken away.

 

For Sale Signs

 

Last week I drove around Union and Morris County. I saw many signs that were in violation of real estate commission regulations. For example, a salesperson’s name should be smaller than the brokerage’s name. Be specific when you have your signs made up and, better yet, bring a photo of a sign that is correct.

 

Place a sign on the property after you have looked at the home from all angles of the street. If the street is dark, consider a light on the sign or underneath so a driver can easily write down the phone number without getting out of his or her car. Owners selling their home by themselves should ensure the sign is clear and easy to read from the street.

 

In winter months consider a post sign so the for sale sign is not covered with snow. Realtors can check on-line for companies that offer lights attached to post signs.

 

Brochure Boxes

 

Realtors can use a brochure box to display flyers and property information. This brochure box is especially helpful if the home is in a heavily trafficked area.

 

As a Kenilworth and Cranford real estate broker, I have learned many specifications about signs. Sellers have a responsibility along with their realtor for following the municipality ordinances while presenting a professionally looking sign.
