Abandoned Realtor Signs and Sign Posts

Over the past week I've been driving around Prince William County in Northern Virginia. I'm discovering that houses which are REO properties have Realtor signs and sign post that are neglected.

In some cases the sign is missing or the post is laying on the ground.

The grass which has grown up around the post is evidence that it has been neglected for quite a while.

I can only guess at this point that the agents who had a number of REO properties for sale put up signs on all their properties but abandoned the signs and sign posts for the properties that never sold.

Does anybody have insight about the abandoned signs and sign posts I'm seeing?

Left over and forgotten signs have been a problem for years, more so with companies that provide signs, then the agents do not care, its not their money!

The real question is have these homes sold? When some listings have been on for a year & no homeowner, it can easily look abandoned. Try calling the number first.

Load them up in a truck and go dump them on the front steps/door of the listing company....if they're still in business.  LOL!

With the number of agents dropping daily it is no surprise to see abandoned signage. Strange that we can't stop people from stealing our signs but others get left behind.

I just found another abandoned sign yesterday. There seems to be no end to it!
