Beware of 1-800 numbers on Yard signs
One of the “tricks of the trade” is to use a 1-800 number on a yard sign with the promise of free 24 hour information about the home for sale. What most of these services do is immediately contact the agent with the phone number of the person that called. These services are able to retrieve the phone number even if the caller has Caller ID Blocking. A person is thinking they are not calling a salesperson and just getting recorded property info, but they quickly realize this isn’t the case when their phone rings.
