Real estate signs allow an agent to effectively market a property, and they serve as an inmportant directional aide when conducting an open house. Fortunately, state laws exist to protect the rights of real estate practitioners and homeowners to market properties via real estate signs.
Local governments possess the authority to regulate the size, number, time, place and manner, etc. in which such real estate signs are displayed and they may even prohibit them on public property. It is every agent's responsibility to know the laws or ordinances, usually found as part of the zoning code or municipal code, in the local jurisdictions in which they work.
