Yard signs - how big should they be?

I was on my way to the local mall a few days ago and cut down a street I normally take and was amazed at an enormous FOR SALE sign in the front yard of a home in our neighborhood. We live just outside Philadelphia in Berwyn and our house prices whilst they have levelled a little have not collapsed as some markets and compared to other areas of the country our prices are quite strong. We are talking about a home priced at $585,000.

As you come along the road, do you see the mailbox in the background?

So I realize it is for sale, the phone number is still small, and you know there is no website mentioned who is this sign for, the broker or the house?

What struck me was the size of the yard sign, most agents simply place a typical push in the ground sign with their contact details on it, if the house warrants it or some agents out of preference will use a hanging sign placed by a company, these are one piece of wood with a hanging sign from the top. But this home has what amounts to a billboard in their front yard. Two pices of wood supporting a large sign between them.

This home recently was on the mareket for a mater of days priced at $925,000. can you the sign?

So what is the correct size for a yard sign?
