As long as you have the property under contract, you can certainly market it, despite not having closed yet. Why are the potential buyers even concerned about the sign? If they question it, sounds as if you’re giving them the correct answer: you have the property under contract to purchase or lease or whatever. I would definitely NOT wait until closing to begin marketing; that’s just time lost during which many potential buyers would not even know about it. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to run a “test ad” prior to making an offer, attempting to determine interest in a property, since a couple properties I’ve dealt with have rather limited appeal. Also, I would make sure your purchase agreement gives you access to show the property.
