Using advertising boards can help sell your house quickly..
Using advertising boards - having a 'For Sale' sign outside your house - doesn't appeal to everybody - as estate agents up and down the land will testify. But it does generate more viewings of your house?
Selling privately website Houseladder says that on average their customers say 50% of their viewings are generated directly from their for sale boards.
You shouldn't be surprised. After all, most people move locally.
So regardless of whether you are selling your house privately, through an estate agent or property auction using advertising boards is worth serious consideration. After all, you want a quick sale, don't you?
Some property websites will sell advertising boards (for sale boards) as part of one of their packages.
If you are going it alone, then you need to find a sign company,
ideally with experience of making advertising boards for property.
Alternatively look in the Yellow Pages or just google 'for sale boards'.
Many of the best signage companies are more geared up to volume sales but it is worth contacting a company with the relevant experience to see if they will make up a board for you. For example, View1 Signs based in South East London will do quality For Sale Boards for private sellers from around £35 depending on your requirements. All I had to do was ask! You can contact them on 08452 600 786 or through
Don't forget to put some details on the board, including at least one method of contacting you.
If you are selling privately and possibly worried about prospective buyers turning up on your doorstep on spec, you can incorporate 'Viewing strictly by appointment' (or something similar) into the signage.
