THE BEST ADVERTISEMENT FOR A REALTOR.

My old boss used to say "There was no better marketing for an agent than a FOR SALE sign." 

He was correct.  But I always felt they were even more powerful with a SOLD sign on top...

                Ken's Sold Sign

Don't you?

Many agents don't use them.  Perhaps they are hoping buyers continue to call, even after contract...

I don't think it works that way.

I think when you put the SOLD sign up, it sends would be buyers into a frenzy.  They call even more.  Perhaps a reverse psychology thing?

And the neighbors?  They LOVE seeing the SOLD sign in the neighborhood.

They will remember you.  Especially in this market...

So when you sell the home, get the SOLD sign up. 

It's like the cherry on a top of the sundae! :)
