Types of Custom Real Estate Signs

A real estate sign is any sign that you use for your real estate business which can include branding, directional signs, open house signs, or banners. These custom signs promote both the realtor and the real estate for sale.

The normal size for real state signs varies depending on laws or regulations in the location in which you’re selling the real estate, and on what type of sign it is. For example, an open house sign in front of a residence is smaller than a banner outside a local business. Some locations only permit real estate signage under a specific size. Our signage experts will be able to advise on what types of signage would and wouldn’t be permitted.

There’s a range of real estate signs available to you. In the Chicago area, you can use:

  • Post and panel signs
  • A-frame signs
  • Flag signs

Work alongside our professionals at Captivating Signs to find out which sign would best suit your needs.
