A reader has a question:
I was looking at listings online recently and was surprised to find several homes in my neighborhood that I had thought had sold, still listed for sale. The reason I had thought they had sold was that the signs in front of them had come down some time ago. But the listings showed them as still on the market.
So I drove by a couple of them and nope, signs are still gone.
Was wondering if just “taking down the sign” was a common practice, maybe a way for houses that are bound to sit on the market for a long time to try to avoid the stigma of seeming to just sit there . . .
