I would think that the Sellers would be very happy that you are working with them to market the house, and relieve them of the responsibility of answering inquiries, showings, and the contractual stuff.

Hi All!

Well I got another contract signed with a fsbo and hopefully this one will be a success. However, I was wondering about the For Sale Sign on the property. Should I have the owners to remove the sign with their phone# and replace it with mine since I do have it under contract and I want people to contact me instead of them. The owners are well aware of the nature of my business, they just want the house sold.

At this point, it’s best to ask the sellers if they would mind you putting up your sign.

Next time though, the better way to handle it, is to put a clause in the purchase agmt. that says that the sellers will give you permission to put up your sign.

If they wont give you permission, then just run your ads & send out flyers, etc. if need be.

Just curious, are you doing a lease option with this deal or something else??

In the situation that you mention I always have my sign with me, when talking with the seller. I mention that often during the conversation, along with statements like “I will do it all” or “no more irritating phone calls for you”. Then when I leave I take thier sign down and put my sign up, usually without any comment whatsoever…ED
