This is a question that many buyers often ask. A property is sold when a buyer and seller agree in writing to terms of a sale, it has nothing to do with the sign. After the agreement is made the buyer usually has to do an inspection, get an appraisal, secure financing, and so on. The property is never really "sold" until close. Sellers may way to continue to receive offers right up until close from buyers who have already seen the property, or maybe those that would risk making an offer sight unseen. Part of the agreement is that the property will be taken of the market, so therefore sellers are not allowed to show the property to prospects any longer.
So agents place sold signs out, and some do not. There is no law or rule that says a sold sign must be put on a sold property.
