“When holding an open house we always put out open house direction signs, especially at corners. Most agents don’t ask permission to place these signs.
“I find that when I ask, many tell me they have lived on this corner for decades and I am the first to ask permission. When I do this, my signs never get removed, and the property owner looks at me as unique and considerate. When it comes time for them to sell, they often remember and call me first.
“When the property owner is not home I leave a special card that tells them how to find me if my sign offends them. I have never received a complaint. Be considerate! You wouldn’t want someone putting their advertising in your yard without asking.”
