Will a For Sale Sign Help Your House Sell Faster?

If you’re reading this you’re probably wondering whether or not you should have a for sale sign so we’ll save you some time and answer that real quick – yes. You categorically should have a for sale sign if you are selling your property.

Reason number 1: Your neighbours

Your neighbours probably aren’t checking realestate.com.au every day but they will certainly notice a sign being put up in your yard, and are likely to mention this to others. You may even be lucky enough to have a neighbour that has friends or loved ones wanting to move closer to them.

Reason number 2: Extra exposure

Consider this scenario. Your buyer has been searching on realestate.com.au in the general area but not under your specific suburb and they don’t find your home. Luckily, you have a for sale sign up and one of the buyers friends sees it on their way to work and lets them know. Thanks to the sign, neither you nor the buyer missed out. Whichever way you look at it, having a sign up means more people will know your property is for sale, and this increases the chances of it being sold successfully.

Reason number 3: To help a buyer out

Many buyers do a drive-by before booking an inspection, you don’t want them struggling to find your property, or thinking it has gone off the market. Signs also make it easy for buyers to contact you as they can take down your number and call it straight away.

Reason number 4: Signs are extremely cost-effective

Most professional signs will last until your property is sold. Given that there is no ongoing cost it’s hard to understand why anyone would choose not to use what real estate agents often call the “silent salesman.”

Reason number 5: A good for sale sign shows you’re serious and professional

Anyone can post a Gumtree listing or a classified ad, and buyers can occasionally still have qualms about private sales. Having a professional sign up confirms to the buyer that the property is legitimately for sale and that professional services have been engaged to market it. So in a nutshell, having a for sale sign is cost-effective, makes it easier for buyers to reach you, and means more people will see and talk about your sale. The bottom line is that if you don’t have a for sale sign, you’re probably missing out on some buyers. Let us know whether you’ve chosen to use a for sale sign or not, and why.

Now that you understand the importance of these signs, you can easily get professionally done signs for sale, rent, and open house. You can find more information here.
