One professional yard sign insert is included in your listing fee.
All our signs have RAIN Realty phone number on it. MLS rules prohibit posting a seller’s phone number on real estate company signs.
When buyers call the number on the sign, we refer them to the seller so that the seller can show the home and possibly avoid a buyer’s agent commission. We explain to buyers what we do so they don’t get confused and are more likely to work directly with the seller.
We do not attempt to show the house to make a 3% commission unless the seller wants the house to be shown by an agent, and specifies as such in the listing agreement.
Please DO NOT use a For-Sale-By-Owner sign!
For-Sale-By-Owner signs attract 4 kinds of people that most sellers don’t want to hear from:
- New real estate agents who are told by their broker to call all the For-Sale-By-Owner signs to get some listings.
- Buyers with bad credit looking for owner financing.
- Investors looking for bargains
- Recent real estate seminar graduates who are told to call For-Sale-By-Owner signs to find a deal for zero down.
