I am a Realtor and I use Open House signs, occasionally they go missing, I always try to put them up on the morning of the Open House in a right of way at an intersection but although rare still sometimes a homeowner gets annoyed and removes it before I return at the end of the Open House, I think in 7 years I have lost 2 signs.
This is one of my signs, I did not want to incriminate any local agents with my next comments. I am also a homeowner and one of my pet peeves is agents who place Open House signs when they get a listing at every junction in a neighborhood. There is no Open House, not till Sunday, but those signs stay up all week, every day and the following week. Our local township sign ordinance does not allow directional signs. However, recently the police have been kind, everyone knows the real estate market is off right now so they are cutting us and the homeowners some slack. But, all these signs are unnecessary and annoying and when someone complains we all get hurt because now none of us will be able to have signs out even on the day of the Open House.
So, please be considerate of others, pick up your signs, be thoughtful of homeowners property and your fellow Realtors. Thanks.
