Selling your home involves a lot of due diligence and time spent promoting the effort. If the listing and selling of your home is being handled by a real estate agent or broker, one of the first things they do is placing real estate sign(s) in your yard. There are typically two formats involved where the sign’s contents are concerned. If you are handling the sale of your home without the assistance of a realtor, the sign will state that the home is “For Sale by Owner”. On the other hand, if a real estate agent or broker is the person responsible for the sale of the home, the sign will state that the home is for sale by the particular real estate company that the agent or broker works for.
