Sticking a sign in the ground is a straightforward task. But for landlords who are serious about finding a great renter quickly, the job may require a little more thought. As you go to list your rental property, consider these “Dos and Donts” of yard sign placement.
DO choose your location wisely.
The “For Rent” sign targets passing cars and pedestrians, so it must be easy to spot from the street. Install the sign perpendicular to the road--and if your property is on a corner lot, consider putting a sign on either side of the yard. After installing the sign, do a drive by of your own property. Does it catch your eye? If so, job done!
Location is key, but Peach Perch “For Rent” signs garner much more attention than their dusty red predecessors. The clean, eye-catching design of our signs is sure to make a passersby do a double take.
DON’T make it complicated.
The less information a “For Rent” sign provides, the more time property owners spend fielding phone calls. Instead of taking ten calls a day about half baths and security deposits, consider a “For Rent” sign that does more than fill your voicemail inbox.
Each Peach Perch For Rent sign comes with a unique Property ID tag, which directs street traffic to a detailed online listing. We provide all the basic facts renters crave about bedrooms and rent, so our landlords only hear from renters who are serious about their properties.
DO install the sign properly.
It’s an obvious tip, but the peril of a lazily-placed “For Rent” sign is inarguable: A rental property won’t draw much attention if its sign has capsized.
Fortunately, Peach Perch signs are constructed with quick, secure installation in mind. The Property ID is removable, allowing the bottom bar to be used as leverage to push the sign down firmly. Once that’s done, just re-attach the Property ID. And yes, hardware is included!
DON’T place your sign in a blind spot.
Remember: Prospective renters want to snap a picture of the sign so they can view the Property ID later. Don’t install your sign in a place where it will be blocked from view by trees or parked cars.
Even in a world inundated with digital advertising, “For Rent” signs play an important role in drawing attention to available listings. Peach Perch is committed to improving the leasing process with better yard signs and quicker, more effective communication between property owners and prospective renters.
