The Mother Of All Signboards

many of you know in Australia we use a variety of signboards in front yards to attract attention and tell people "Hey, I have a house for sale here" and most signs used in Australia have a photo of a part of the property that isn't visible from the street, usually the back yard or pool area, or designer kitchen to reinforce the advantages of the property. The sigboards are usually portrait design but some are landscape and you can see examples of our picture signboards in some of my other posts. I did come across this signboard the other day and just had to share it with you. Now, maybe your local zoning won't allow a sign like this, but maybe its just that no one has ever asked before but if you really want to grab some attention then perhaps you should consider using a signboard like this one, The Mother of All Signboards!

Geoff, That is one serious sign!  I can't imagine what the cost of that might be!  It does cover half the house though.

Hi Emily and Christie, you are both right, the sign is better looking than the house, so it's a good idea to hide half the house!

That sign will definitely get attention, that's for sure.   But will it sell the house?

Hi Fred, I thought that's why they hired an agent, to sell the house, it's another tool along with the internet and a color brochure.

Hey Geoff. That's not a sign "it's a billboard".

I like it. Now if the "price is right " you will sell in no time.

Best of luck my friend.

Hi again, Geoff - my previous comment may have implied that I don't like the sign. 

Let me be clear - I do like the sign.    It is attention getting!

Best wishes, hope you sell it.   :)

Hey Fred, I get you, thanks for clarity though, it's not my sign, but I know the agent who is using the sign, like many things, it's good to think outside the box, could I use this size sign everyday, no, but it's good to see someone trying something different. Have a great week, Fred, thanks for your comments.
