A ‘For Sale’ sign outside your house could work wonders when you are trying to sell your property. However, to get the best advantage of the sign, it is important to know how to design it properly and place it perfectly. Read on to find out how you can get the best of you ‘For Sale’ sign.
If you live in a planned community, the first thing you are going to have to do is look up your terms and conditions. Many Home Owners Associations have restrictions on the kinds and number of signs you can place for announcing the sale of your house. You will have to keep these restrictions in mind when you are designing and placing your signs. Unfortunately, in the case of some Home Owners Associations, you may not be able to place a sign at all, in case you will have to look for other means of advertising your sale.
Many Home Owners associations only allow signs in window panes. If that is the case with you, design a sign that displays the words ‘For Sale’ in bold and large letters. Nothing else you write will be legible from the outside, so don’t bother cluttering the board. Just make sure that the sign is well lit and visible from the outside. Also, if there are any trees or bushes obscuring the view to the window from the outside, ensure that you trim the branches of those trees or bushes.
The other important thing to keep in mind is if you are placing a sign in your yard that can handle your local seasonal weather conditions. If you are placing the sign during a wet season, ensure that the material used for preparing the sign as well as the paint used to write on it are water-proof. Nothing is more turning off than a wet and dripping sign.
You can actually buy a standard ‘For Sale By Owner’ sign at a local hardware store. Else, you can easily buy the material and stencil in the right size to create a sign of your own. You can then add details like how many bedroom you have as well as any other highlights of the property like a swimming pool, an outdoor hot tub, etc. to catch people’s attention. If you have a realtor, chances are that he or she will have their own ‘For Sale’ sign available with their contact details, company name and logo.
