Why are you junking up your signs if you're not going to make sure they're portraying the image of you that puts you in the best light? If you're going to put sign riders on your signs, you should make sure they're attached securely.
This sign is two doors down from me. The house has been on the market since July '07 and has not had a price adjustment of any kind. Instead, about 4 months ago, this "Special Financing" sign appeared. In today's mortgage situation, what kind of "Special Financing" are you talking about? There are no more "outside the box" loans. Either you fit the mold or you don't. How can you advertise that the house has special financing when there, more than likely, isn't going to be anything special about it. What do you think of the agent whose riders are hanging off their sign like this?
Here is another sigh that is across the street from me. Yes, the same broker, but different listing agents. If you're going to impress the sellers at your listing appointment that you're going to cut down a few trees to keep flyers in the box attached to the sign, why is it never full of flyers? Do you get a lot of angry calls from people driving around wanting that flyer? Probably not since I don't live in an area where you would get too much drive-by traffic, so the agent probably doesn't even know it's been empty for weeks.
So, if you're going to put sign riders and boxes with your signs, why aren't you paying attention to how they represent you? A sign rider falling off a sign signals Sloppy Agent to me. Flyer box that sits empty week after week signals Lazy Agent to me.
I won't promise fancy riders and flyer boxes when I list your house. I'll promise you a very clean sign with my name and contact information on it, for when each and every buyer pulls up to the house with their appointment to view it, not drive by it.
