Real Estate Yard Signs and How to Place Them

eye catching real estate signs
It doesn’t take much to notice how many real estate yard signs are posted around the neighborhood. And there’s a reason for it – they work! Tried and proven, realtor yard signs are both effective and necessary. They attract our attention immediately, and even without reading the details, we know that the property is for sale, or rent, or lease. Be sure to check the local laws for advertising regulations. California has implemented the states outdoor advertising act on October 22, 1965, regulating advertisers to post signage, printed materials on or near highways.

Are Realtor yard signs still effective?

Even with the advent of the Internet, and with so much online real estate marketing, custom real estate yard signs still do the job - they are simply essential. They grab attention, they deliver important information, and most importantly they provide contact info. Old-fashioned as they may seem, real estate yard signs are still one of the most cost effective marketing tools. In fact, business surveys clearly demonstrate that retail signage, depending on the graphics and messaging, bring the attention that’s required.

 Does color make a sign impactful?

To get a real impact from a sign, there are a number of design principles to keep in mind – one of which is color. That’s exactly why Remax yard signs and Keller Williams yard signs stick to specific company colors and color schemes. Color conveys a brand, and with real estate yard signs that brand consistency contributes to consumer recognition. Industry studies actually show that colors contribute considerably to logo/trademark recognition. Interestingly, there are also psychological factors associated with color.

How important is material?

While we offer mostly cardstock material, metal is also an amazing option. Metal real estate signs are far more durable and can, therefore, save costs in the long run. They're awesome for outdoor use and will stand out far above and beyond typical paper materials. It allows a bold fresh look to quickly garner attention from pedestrians and drivers alike.

How important is sign readability?

While much of a realtor’s sign has smaller print, the right typestyle will make a huge difference in readability. Of course, the contact info is the most important, especially if an interested customer is driving by and trying to pay attention. In some cases, it can be effective to do “reverse” lettering, where an important phone number is highlighted in white on a dark background. Adding a line border around a section of text has also proven to increase readability. Most important is to keep all of the messaging simple.

Does the size of a sign matter?

As the well-known saying goes - size matters! When it comes to real estate yard signs, however, there are some limits. For the most part, the industry has decided on certain sign parameters - tried and proven sizes that everyone usually adheres to. While each sign is different, the sizing, lettering, and presentation seem to be standard. And that’s because it works! The last thing you want to do is get too clever and make a sign hard to read. A real estate yard sign is a giant calling card, so it is wise to make it effective.

Is online ordering worthwhile?

When budgeting for yard signs and riders, real estate agents have found that online ordering can be quite cost effective. Since there’s no “middle man”, the total cost of materials and printing has some definite cost-saving benefits. And today, there’s no question about quality – the technology is very advanced. If you’re looking for real estate yard signs cheap, then online ordering is the answer. You can create a custom design, place your order, and arrange for secure shipping all under one roof (make sure its all guaranteed). What are the best real estate rider signs?
