You see "Coming Soon" signs from time to time... An agent does need to have a listing to advertise the property of another for sale. However, so long as a sign conforms with any local sign ordinances and they have the property owner's permission, they can place a sign on the property. This is a variation of buying bill board space. I think it pushes the limits, but unless it violates a sign ordinance, it's probably legal, but ill advised.

Yes, I would suggest doing the repair and that you obtain a bid or two from a contractor for repair. Things may be hard to see by our eyes but any home will be inspected so it's better to take care of it now.
I'd be happy to assist you in selling your property if you are not currently working with a realtor. We can discuss what we need to do to get your home ready for the market.
