Whose Job is it?

It’s not my job, as the Buyer’s agent, to have the “For Sale” sign removed after closing.

But if the listing agent (representing the Seller) doesn’t arrange to have that done, it is my job to follow-up.

In fact, at least at bigger brokers like Edina Realty, that process is done automatically for listing agents as soon as they turn in the paperwork from the closing (yes, there still is paperwork).

Usual time lag (at least once the sign company has received the order):  3-4 business days.

P.S.: For whatever reason, I do seem to be calling more listing agents about this lately.

Busier market? (undoubtedly true).

Stuff falling through the cracks for busy agents?
