Real estate signs are an important tool for letting people know that a home is for sale. Real estate signs connect you with potential buyers and are often the first impression a potential buyer has about you as a real estate agent.
#1 Add a Number You Can Text to Your Sign
Many individuals prefer to call instead of text, and this extends to professional interactions as well. Make sure that the number your put on your sign can receive text massages; don't put up a landline number that can't get text messages. Potential buyers appreciate the ability to text with a real estate agent and quickly get the information they need.
To make things easier, you can add a code that potential buyers can text you. That code will let you know what house they are looking at, and it will allow you to provide potential buyers with important information via text message about the specific home they are interested in.
#2 Add Lights to Your Sign
Next, make sure that your sign is visible, especially in the fall and winter months when it gets dark outside really early. Add some lights to your sign so that it is easy to read, regardless of the time of day.
You don't have to rig up lights to light up your sign. You can simple purchase some solar lights, and place the solar lights on both sides of your sign to light it up. Solar lights are an easy and affordable way to ensure your real estate sign stands out during the day and night.
#3 Decorate Around the Sign
You can do more than add lights to the sign, you can also decorate around the sign in a way that will grab potential buyers' attention. For example, in the spring and summer months, you can put potted plants around the base of the sign to attract attention. In the fall, you could put some pumpkins and gourds around the base of the sign. In the winter months, you can put up some snowy wintery decorations around the sign to attract attention to it.
With real estate signs, you want to make sure that you can receive text messages at the number you put on the sign. Text message is become a way of doing business, not just communicating with friends. Think about how you place your sign as well; add decorations to draw attention to your sign and solar lights to make the sign visible at all times.
