When I see them I get excited to have the opportunity to see what houses in my neighborhood look like on the inside, and to find out what they're going for.
The signs are like clues to little gems of discovery and exploration!

How hard is it to walk l foot around a sign? Trashing someone's personal property is not a good idea. If you feel the sign is in a bad spot, go and ask the Realtor to move it to a better part of the corner or closer to the home. Most will gladly comply.
How sad that you want to stop someone else from finding a particular property he/she might want to purchase. Instead of being bitter, get involved. You might want to join Middle Polk Neighborhood Association that meets at It's A Grind (Washington & Polk) or the Russian Hill neighborhood group.
Also Bitter Renter, you just might be able to afford a condo or TIC.... Talk to a mortgage broker or your banker about First Time Buyer programs. The City has one too....go to http://www.sfgov.org and check out theirs. And many of the new complexes are selling BMR units (below market rate) as part of the City's program. Who knows? You just might qualify! A realtor can help you navigate through all the requirements.
Try to find a positive way to deal with your anger!
Trish.......The type of HOA fees to which you might refer that are common in Houston are not common to other areas. From what I understand, many communities of Single Family Homes in Houston have a small HOA fee for upkeep of public sidewalks or landscaping corners or midways of public land, and the HOA has no other purpose or function. Is that true? Is that what you meant by HOA fees? Or did you think that Bitter Renter lives in a private community with a HOA that oversees privately owned lands?
Either way....great comment about picking up after the dog...and well stated that someone is paying for these signs.

You heard of Karma? Or the Golden Rule. We, agents, are providing services to make homeownership easy
for you. I am just appalled that you will do something like this because it takes money and effort to put up those signs. Lucky for you, you get a regular paycheck but we do not get paid until we completely sell a house. I hope you will grow up SOON and be a productive member of our society.
Are you hoping to buy, but can't and thinking to keep the market down? I just don't understand your reasoning.
What do you do for a living? If someone were to prevent you from getting further in life, would you appreciate it?
You need to see a therapist and work through your anger issues, or contact a good agent and mtg lender and let them help you OWN a home so you would feel more connected.
Either way, much luck!
think about the person
trying to sell a house that they paid too much for
be careful, they may be more bitter than you
and really you are in a good position
renting was the smart choice in the housing bubble
unfortunately, you neighborhood seems to be filled
with people that thought housing prices go up forever
ARE YOU PICKING UP AFTER YOUR DOG?
