Philly is one of those cities that home buyers do drive around looking for homes for sale. It easier to search on the internet but there is something alluring about the boots-on-the-ground approach particularly in the nicer weather. Almost every day I receive a call from an interested buyer on one of my For Sale Signs. They were driving around, checking out a neighborhood and spot a For Sale Sign, slam on the brakes and give me a call. There is no question whether you should have a For Sale Sign on your home, unless you want to keep secret the fact that your home is for sale a secret.
Placement of For Sale Signs
- They should be easily visible from the street. If I don’t like where the installers place my For Sale Signs, I call them and submit a move order. Sometimes signs can be blocked by cars parked on the street, trees or telephone poles.
- If it’s a corner house there should be a sign on each side.
- If the sign cannot be mounted to the building it should be attached to a long stake and secured to the railing. My sign guys are inventive, they understand the importance of placement.
