A few weeks back, my office assistants called to say a for sale sign that had been installed in front of a Natomas listing was found lying in an open field quite a ways from the property. At the time, I chalked it up to kids playing a prank. We returned the sign to the property and reinstalled it. This was about the same time the seller called and demanded we meet him pronto to give him a key. No reason given.
I'm not saying the two things are intertwined, but it's very peculiar that a week later the sign has vanished again. Right after the seller decided to cancel the listing. My policy is never to try to force a seller to sell if the seller later changes has a change of heart. Of course, it's a bit more tricky when the seller is also in contract and the sale is pending. Gah. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Do You Need For Sale Signs in the Yard in Sacramento?
