Breaking News: For Sale Signs Helpful in Selling Real Estate

Real Estate Agent with Jefferson Properties 0225213983

I know it's groundbreaking, but I just spotted this news headline and gasped: FOR SALE SIGN HELPFUL IN SELLING REAL ESTATE.  Who knew?


Upon conducting a cursory search for real estate signs,  as I am about to design and order my own, I found results that were not quite what I was expecting; however, they sure did give me some belly laughs on this rainy day in Virginia. Now, I don't own any cats, but I think this sign might attract the purring-type feline crowd:

 Next up, we have this incentive. Who needs home warranties to encourage buyers when you can throw  in a free pizza?  What a splurge.


Selling your home is like removing your own, let those listings roll in.

Ever driven by an old Victorian with a rusty gate and wondered, is it haunted?  Well this sign takes care of that! It's NOT HAUNTED, in case you're wondering.

Before I became a Realtor, I was a high school English teacher. I used to keep a file of my favorite grammatical blunders.  This is the reason we proofread, people:

I admire creativity.  This sign just says it all!  HONEY, STOP THE CAR!

Thanks for giggling with me today.  I hope these signs gave you a good laugh!

LOL, proofreading IS important now, isn't it?!

I have to admit I think the pizza one is pretty clever. It would catch my eye and make me laugh, but I am not so sure I would look at the house!

Jenn Hart, Richmond, VA, REALTOR®, 804-317-7997  loved the one from Boston....having lived and sold Real Estate in Boston, the Mice is true... my gut feeling is since the property was on Mass Ave it was one of the smart ass college students who probably changed the message... Boston is a College town:)), Endre
