Signage that is damaged, missing, broken, etc.

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams GCW

Is it just me, or are other folks bothered by the lack of diligence that some agents show towards their listings by not "checking up" on their signage?

I was driving and walking through several neighborhoods today and saw the following:

  • Signs without a realty company name
  • Signs without a form of contact (phone or website)
  • Signs with upside down riders
  • Signs bent and tilted away from the road

And here is my favorite; a sold sign was in a rider and there were 2 "open this Sunday" signs at either corner of the driveway.

The way I see it; my signs are an extension of me and my broker. How the signage looks, I look as well.

I know when I paid for my first batch of "glennkutner.com" signs, I was proud of my new babies, and I knew that taking care of them was going to be an important part of my RE routine.

I totally agree. It looks so unprofessional and is completely unnecessary. Not only does it look bad for us and our names, it looks bad to the seller, the public and our entire reputations and industry.

Kids kick them in, wind knocks them over, agents don't hammer them in far enough, they use old rusty signs, and never bother to go check on them again. I've seen many just laying on the ground hidden in the tall grass. Neither the seller or the agent care. I bet those homes will sell! And ahh yes, the open arrows all over the corners of main streets well into the middle of the week. Hum. And you wonder how to gain activity for your open houses Glen? Lol, it helps if the buyers know which day of the week we're having them! After a while, they're just going to stop bothering.

Glenn I gotta say I am happy in some cases when agents don't work as hard as they should. i am watching a foreclosure drop in price right now and there is No sign any where on the property. I hope they don't put a sign up till it gets down low enough so I can buy it.

When I was a lender all I did was call realtors to let them know thier sign was broken or falling down.  Not sue if they appreciated it but I would now as a listing agent.
