Can I use a “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) sign?

If you list your property for sale in the MLS, the answer is no.

Really? Why?

MLS Property Information Network, Inc. Rules and Regulations, specifically Article IV – Prohibitions,
state that only the “For Sale” signs of the Listing Broker may be placed on a Listed Property.

*According to MLS-PIN Rules and Regulations, Article IV, Section 4.0 “For Sale Signs”; Only
the “For Sale” signs of the Listing Broker may be placed on a Listed Property.

This means you can not use the words “By Owner”.  Buyer’s driving by are more likely
to make contact if the sign does NOT have “By Owner”.


Ok, so what do I do now? I’d like a for sale sign on my property.

If you want the exposure a real estate yard sign provides, and you need a for sale sign, no problem,
we provide one as your Listing Broker.

The real estate sign we provide you will have space for your name and your contact information on it,
but it will have our necessary brokerage information to satisfy the rules and regulations of the MLS – take the next step with FSBO yard signs.
