By Popular Demand: Announcing The Ugliest "For Sale" Sign Contest

By
Home Stager with Prudential Ambassador / Ross Designs, LLC

I wrote a blog last week about a very unattractive "For Sale" sign in my neighborhood. I received many comments of similarly ugly For Sale sign spottings and it was suggested that we have an "Ugliest For Sale Sign" contest.  Here goes!

I am not sure what the official rules should be; I guess since it's my post then I get to be the final judge? Nah, that wouldn't be fair.  I will reformat the blog and open it to the group for judging. Let's hold the contest open for one week - submissions accepted on this blog through June 17th, midnight CST (how's that for sounding official?).

What will the momentous award be, you ask? The winner will receive - A GREAT BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ON AR, POSTED IN SEVERAL GROUPS. Yea for you!

How's that for incentive?  No gas cards, no gift certificates to restaurants or a pot of cash, just the knowledge that you had the distinct pleasure of finding and photographing the most hideous For Sale sign any of us have seen.

P.S.  Here's the sign that started it all

Those signs are great... I'll keep an eye out today as I'm out and about.  There are usually some pretty bad FSBO signs.

I like the one [painted on the side of the house.  They should have also wrote: "SLASH IT SALE" like the car lots.

Tori, what fun AND how sad.  Another reason to always have the camera close at hand.  I'll be looking but it will be difficult to complete with Karen, as usual.

Not at this is necessarily "ugly", but I think it's ugly to have sooo much sign graffiti.  Who is a consumer supposed to call?  There are 3 phone numbers along with a web address...
