For those who use bandit signs, how are they working out for you all? I am in the Cincinnati Ohio area and for some reason bandit signs don't seem to work as well as others have said they work in there part of the country.
I have tried to use hand-written signs for buyers the past few months with poor results. I have maybe gotten 15 calls from 100 signs over the past few months and frankly I am peeved.
I put the signs on poles where I *know* traffic is constantly backed up during rush hour. I usually put out 10-15 at a time. I know that number wont give me boatloads of calls, but the lack of calls received is disheartening to say the least.
Now I'm told that handwritten signs aren't the best for my city. Rather handwritten signs are great for getting buyers, and press-printed signs are best for finding sellers.
The message on my sign was: "I Pay CA$H For Houses xxx-xxxx". I use a local cell phone number to stay anonymous from the sign police in case they get froggy and want to fine me. It was a thick black marker on a white background.
So right now I'm trying the bandit signs one more time, and this time I am using printed signs that say the same message. But this time the sign colors are purple ink on yellow chloroplast background. It is pretty and ugly at the same time. I am hoping for improved results.
Anyone else dealing with the bandit sign blues?
