Those ads need to be pulled immediately! That is a violation of law. There is no ad that can not be stopped. Take the Realtors sign down and lay it in the street and put up a sign that states No Tresspasing or "Pit Bull....Stay Off" works too.

People are like vultures right now. Call the agent and whoever is running the ads and tell them that this stops or you file a complaint with the attorney General or The Real Estate Commisioner.

Best of luck wih the new home. I trust you got a good buy in it.

Stitch's Mom,
Congratulations on successfully completing your short sale purchase!

You own the property...Permission for signage typically ends when the property closes. It is the listing Broker's responsibility to finish the transaction by removing the sign. Unfortunately, we can get caught up in life and "forget" something that important...

If the listing Broker still hasn't taken the time to collect her sign...please remove it and call the number on the sign to ask for pick up by a certain date. You can place it in a side yard or near your garage.

If you were represented by your own Real Estate Broker Please ask to borrow a SOLD sign and place it where it will direct the traffic. I sometimes use something like... "Sorry...You just missed this one!" I'm sure if given an opportunity, your Realtor could be creative and you could direct some of that traffic in your Broker's direction.

Many Brokers would LOVE to convert some of those Forclosure Lookers.

Its a Good Life!

There might be a phone number on the sign post of the sign company, if not call the brokerage and ask for the principal broker, ask for the sign to be removed immediately. if not done remove it yourself.. stopping the ads might be a problem, however if it's in the local paper they should be able to stop the advertising-tell the agent if it's not stopped that you will report her/him to the real estate agency for advertising a property that's not for sale. hope this helps with your problem. it appears that the agent wants to keep the ad running to mine the prospects that call from the ad.

There is no reason to call the newspaper because there is nothing they will do about it. You need to call this auctioneer and tell them not to advertize your property or you will consider taking them to court. They may not do anything about it unless you pay your attorney a few bucks to send them a cease and desist. In the meantime, you will continue to have people show up at your property

Immediately remove the sign from the front lawn and immediately threaten them with a lawsuit if they do not immediately remove the sign from your property and immediately stop advertising the property online and in the newspapers. They are trying to sell a property that isn't for sale which is illegal! One of the biggest no, no's in real estate. I can't believe that they had the audacity to tell you that the ads were going to run for a few more weeks. Please keep us updated as I personally would love to find out how this is resolved.

It may take a few weeks for things to catch up. As long as you have clear title there is nothing to worry about. You might consider putting a SOLD sign in your front window.

That's another reason I do not recommend people to buy houses that claimed to be foreclosure; most of them are just phising since, as you just confirmed there are tons of buyers out there in the market. Whoever said real estate market is bad is just fraud ...

Dirk is right, just lay down those signs from irresponsible listing agents as we did here in our hometown. Those signs was there to lure buyers, but that also convey misleading information.

The real estate is still very healthy and people want to sell the house can sell. Those shown the for sales sign like yours in the media or newspaper, in fact, all sold; they just trying to scare the governement to steal taxpayers money.

On the other hand, that listing agnet must enjoy all the buyers attract from someone else ads to your home and find the sign and call the listing agent to buy. So, why not get the free referrals?
