My sellers frustration is shared by me! He lives in a nationally renowned developers community, with new construction still going on and we can't put a "For Sale" out. It is in the restrictions and no one can put signs out and or knows his townhouse is for sale. In addition to the restriction on signs there is a self appointed "sign patrol" that tours daily. Not only do we have to deal with a trying market we can't market his townhouse properly! I suggested he put a sign in the rear window of his truck "This Townhouse Is For Sale, Call XXX-XXXX".
He called me last week after hearing the new townhomes, not yet built, are selling for more than his and they have four sold since he listed his. Just had to vent, I know many of you are dealing with this same issue! Any thoughts or suggestions would be great. Maybe we should create something that would signify what is for sale in communities where no signage is allowed. I put a child's red adirondack chair with a fern in one front flower bed and mentioned it in the agent to agent remarks, to specify which unit was for sale. This doesn't help with the drive by's though!
