It's illegal to post these signs on public right of way. They're put up by investors seeking desperate homeowners who will sell well below what their homes are worth. If you see such signs on public land, feel free to throw them away. ... more

Most often it is the listing agent. Unless you are using a discount broker than often the seller takes that task. When i take a listing and use the box, i give a stack of flyers to the seller who often can just replace with my copies if they see it empty. ... more

I agree with Alan. Call your agent, he can manually edit the price. As far as lack of showings, it is a very slow time of year. Not a lot of people out buying homes during the holidays. If you don't have more activity in the next two weeks, you're likely still over priced.

Also, people aren't relying on this site for their info. Most serious buyers are working with a Realtor who has access to the local MLS. If the price was reduced in the MLS, they'll know about it.

In most cases yes.I would weigh the cost to gain ratio out before i did it though. There might not be enough return in it to make it worth it.

Jeanne Feenick, New Jersey, back again - the brochure is one of several promotional pieces that are generally available at the home - it is the combination of them that makes for a complete package. Usually a brochure is high on photos and features, but may lack the level of detail found on the MLS listing. I recommend a brochure without the price with a current listing tucked inside to capture price as well as full details. Seems to me that provides a clear presentation and solves the problems of suspected "trickery" or "deception" on the part of the listing agent, which incidentally I think is a silly assertion.

Other supporting documents that might be available at the home can be the Seller's Disclosure, a copy of the survey, community, school, transporation materials.
