Which house needs a sign?

Post by movedsouth » Thu Oct 04, 2012 12:06 pm

I have been putting up "signs" at various properties that we own or take care of to direct people to call us if there is a problem. I hope this will cut down on complaints with the city and code enforcement. However, I have been a bit careful with "tagging" houses we don't own, as it kind of puts the responsibility on us. If you see one that you think could use a sign, let me know. The signs have also worked pretty well in getting owners and other interested people talking to us.

I wouldn't worry about "tagging" a house we don't own. I gave the woman my phone number for 10th Street and it was kinda sweet to get this little voice asking me to help her at 6:45 this morning.

She was beside herself watching people break the window of the house.

I guess I will make up a bunch of "generic" signs and put them up at some of the houses that we boarded / mowed in the past.

The signs are excellent. People have responded to them.
