Real Estate Signs

"For sale" and For Lease" signs are considered commercial signs. While associations may not ban signs and banners entirely, they may establish reasonable restrictions for aesthetic purposes. Associations may limit signs to one per unit, and may require that signs be removed within a reasonable time-period following a lease or sale.

Associations may also prohibit owners and Realtors from putting real estate signs, flags and banners in the common areas.

Since condominium owners do not usually have a yard for posting signs, a sign may be placed in the window of a condominium. Some associations provide a specific area for sales and for lease signs.

Owners in planned developments may post real estate signs on their separate lot, subject to reasonable restrictions adopted by the association.
