I dont want to be the one that tests the theory that they have more lucrative things to do.
I have puts signs up in a town and within two hours I got a call from the police department to remove them all or they would fine me five hundred bucks per sign.
I had to go remove all of them.
I dont think the areas I place my signs in now really care.
The thing about where I place my signs now is that I have put signs up at the same intersections for months on end and then all of the sudden other investors see that as an opportunity to put their signs up on the same pole.
Now on the off chance they can see my signs they rip them down, but most of them are pretty high on the telephone poles and they last quite awhile.
Today I removed about 30 other investor signs that were at the same intersections as mine.
Before I never removed other investors signs, but I concentrate my bandit signs in a 20-30 minute area around my primary residence. I came to a conclusion today that I will remove any other investors signs in this area that I see. We are in a competition business and steps must be taken to ensure that.
How many deals come from the target area around my house.
Not much, but I am going to make sure that they come to me first.
