Benefits of Open House Signs

Where to Display Open House Signs
You already know the three key factors of real-estate: location, location, location. That’s just as important to consider when placing your open house signs. At the event, make sure that open house signs are placed at the edge of the lawn, closest to the street, making them easy to spot by passersby. Ask neighbors if they are willing to let you display directional signage in their yards to help your guests navigate from nearby streets and developments. Place them in visible areas at the entrance to the neighborhood and where permitted by local government, at busy intersections across town.
Open House Sign Regulations
Some counties and cities regulate when and where open house signs may be displayed. Since this varies from county to county, be sure to check out your local county or city government or ordinances for regulations on placing signs on public property, including how long and during what times are permitted.
