hire the post up and I do my own sign up... I used to let the company do the sign, but then sometimes they would loose a sign, or not clean it etc... I just like the better control doing my own... your signage is what is seen first in the neighborhood, it represents you.. make it shine (and big! don't look like an agent who can't afford anything- mine are 36 x 24) seen from down the block... no doubt that home is for sale

I do it myself. Signs requirements vary from county to county and town to town, and even HOA's have sign guidelines. I like to keep on top of all the rules for different areas.

Because our signage is regulated by the municipality placement can be critical due to size restrictions. I relish the opportunity to get another look at what I'm representing with every chance I get, therefore, I'm a do-it-yourself kind of assocaite Debbie.

They do the post.

I do the sign.

Past experience resulted in 'they' scratching the signs to such extent that signs could no longer be used.

I encountered the truck some time ago and understand those $100 signs are not treated as assents by those who jam them on the truck.
