Village Warns Realtors About the Placement of Real Estate Signs

realtorsignAs you drive around Scarsdale, you are sure to notice the proliferation of real estate signs on homeowners' lawns. There once was a time when for sale signs were not posted in Scarsdale, but now they are in evidence in all neighborhoods. The Village does have laws concerning their placement, and Dennis Rubich from the Village's Engineering Department has sent a letter to the managers of local real estate offices to remind them about the laws pertaining to real estate signs.

Here are the rules:

No signs may be placed within the village right of way

Only one sign may be placed on each property

The maximum size of the sign shall be three feet high by four feet long

The sign must be placed at least 15 feet away from the street and 10 feet from the side lot line

The top of the sign shall not be more than eight feet above the ground or curb

If a sign is not properly placed, it will be taken down and brought to Village Hall for storage

Continuous violations will results in the issuance of a court appearance ticket

Property listings are public information and as such it is within the homeowners' rights to post signage or not. Listing signs are useful for marketing the property and also to identify for realtors the property address for showings. Signage has the purpose of designating the "For Sale" property so as not to bother neighbors with unnecessary knocks on the door!

Scarsdale also needs to restrict the time the sign is up after offer and if in contract it should say under contract. The realtors use the signs for free advertising and lures particularly in high density home areas. This needs to be regulated. It really is free advertising for the realtors and an eyesore for neighbors.
