Yard and Estate Sales
Many homeowners hold yard or estate sales in anticipation of selling their property. Many others hold yard or estate sales without any intention of selling their property. Pacific-Realtors.net assists homeowners who want to hold such sales. Upon request, we will provide homeowners with up to five highly visible directional signs that can be placed in strategic locations on the morning of the sale. They are designed to attract attention and maximize traffic to your sale location.
If you are located anywhere in our marketing area and would like up to five-yard sale directional signs, please call our office or any of our agents. We will make the signs available to you the day before or on the morning of the sale.
