At Cary Real Estate we’re preparing for a busy 2010!
We placed an order for more yard signs today – yes we spent the extra money to have the reflective signs – we think it really makes a difference, especially during the winter months as it gets dark so early – the reflective signs really ‘pop’ with car headlights.
Fortunately the Town of Cary, known for strict sign ordinances, still allows a home seller to have a for sale yard sign – but you can’t get carried away! The town limits a home seller to one yard sign with certain size restrictions.
What about open houses? One of the keys to having a successful open house is to drive traffic to the home for sale by having lots of signs – the down side – open house signs start to multiply & not everyone is timely with removing the open house sign – the Town of Cary takes the aesthetic appearance seriously – they have multiple regulations in place regarding a home seller or real estate agent having and advertising open houses.
– limit on the number of open houses per year
– limit on the number of off premise signs directing to the open house
– specs on the size/color of the open house directional sign
– open house sign limited to the weekends
The net effect of the Towns regulations, few agents hold open houses and the Town is not cluttered with signs. Bottom line – There’s a lot more to successfully selling your home in Cary than just an open house!
