Clever as those marketing methods are, one of the best ways to create buzz about your home is far more basic: a "For Sale" sign that will stop people in their tracks. A humorous phrase or an earnest observation about your home plastered on a sign in your front yard can do a lot. At the worst, you'll have spent a few bucks on a custom sign. But at the best, your efforts could go viral—and the more eyes on your home, the more likely you are to land a buyer.
So what would you write if you were to forgo the traditional "For Sale" sign? We found six cheeky examples that are in a league of their own.
1. A scorned wife gets sweet revengeAs a seller, you're supposed to be upfront and honest with your buyer. But airing your dirty laundry on your sign? Well, you'll certainly grab people's attention.
2. Prime locationGood location doesn't just have to mean your home is in a good school district or near world-class ski resorts.
3. No ghosts, no problemWhen a home listing has become stale without a single buyer in sight, desperate times call for desperate measures.
4. Noise won't be an issueLiving across from a cemetery might freak some buyers out.
When buyers rolled up to the open house, they no doubt saw the cemetery, but they were also greeted by a sign that said "Quiet neighbors across the street!"
