Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk: FSBO - Help me get out of here!

FSBO - Help me get out of here!


I got such a big laugh when I saw this that I couldn't pass it up.  I have to admit that once, I moved because of the neighbors, so I can relate.  But, if the first thing you tell your potential buyers is that the neighbors are *&*)*__*&*^**%  Who is going to buy?

Hilarious!  Yes, that sign is probably a big red flag!  Thanks for the laugh!

Talk about curb appeal!!!  Way too funny!  Not so funny for the seller who is cutting off his nose to spite his face!

I might have a different opinion on who may be the a-----e :)

Thats one way to start a conversation.  The owner isn't as much interested in selling their home as they are in pissing off their neighbor.  Either way its pretty funny.

Tere - even in the land of free speech I can see a neighbor contemplating a slander suit

I actually saw a similar sign in person, but it didn't refer to selling. It just said "The guy across the street is a jerk."  Made me wonder why the guy across the street didn't sue him. Or maybe he did. And that's why he's a jerk.

I've seen several pictures of signs like this. But never in person. I wonder if they think this is an effective way to sell. I don't think a buyer would want to live next to that neighbor. LOL!

So did the sign work?

Or just piss off the neighbor :)

All buyers have to do is their due diligence and find out why.

What a great sign. We all have felt like putting this out on occasion.  The only problem it doesn't help the situation.

Now that is what I call full disclosure. Great picture!
