They may want to work on a better main sign design before they worry about new wording for the riders.

I've been using Sale Agreed for years.

It's Irish!

When I was in Dublin, Ireland, all the homes for sale said Sale Agreed instead of Pending. I adopted it and had my sign guy make a bunch!

Fred,

We have not seen it here.  Personally we are not fond of pending or any announcement until it is sold and title has recorded.  A

Have not seen it. Not sure what it means. Might be some kind of legal cautious finagling: can't say "sold", or in "contract" yet, if it's not fully signed. If that is the case, I'm not sure it helps the seller, it might be meant as promotion for the agency ("look what we did, work with US!"). Don't like it.
