Erica Glessing answered:
In CA, is it required for the "For Sale" sign to stand in the middle of our front yard with the "pending" sign on it for the entire 60 day escrow?
You can ask the agent to remove it. It is OK. It is already sold! You are the client, it is you that should be happy.

780 Palo Alto Ave on the creek--does this make it more flood prone, especially in an earthquake? Is that why it hasn't sold?

Can someone tell me what subdivision regulations for a lot in Palo Alto are? I am thinking about buying a big lot for home and subdividing it.
How about 144 Tennyson in Old PA (7500 sq ft lot)? It was subdivided into two lots, 3750 sq ft each fairly recently.
