Laws vary by community. In most you can leave the sign up until closing....as legally the house has not sold until the final papers are signed.

Until you close you really have no say. The Realtor is still marketing the home. There is a chance you deal falls through, it happens everyday. They aren't going to stop "selling" or marketing your home until it is actually sold. To stop trying to market the home would be negligent on the part of the Realtor representing the seller. Anybody who does look at the home will be told the home is under contract, sale pending, in escrow or what ever the proper term is for that area. ADD: In my state it is a misdemeanor to have a realtor sign up in front of a home that is not for sale. I live in a rural area and we have no building codes but many laws on were and how you can advertise with a sign.

There are no such laws. A sign can be left in a yard as long as the owner of record agrees to have one. There are many reasons for not changing the sign status. One is to draw secondary offers on the property in the event that you should fail to close for any reason. The other is to simply draw phone contact in hopes of converting a potential buyer to interest in a different property.

Yes, but they change the website listing that the house is under contract.

Probably practise varies by area, but here the agent usually puts a sold sticker on once the sale is final and the sign is taken down when the new owners take possession if not before. But it can be removed at any time, it's your yard if you don't want the sign there call the realtor and tell them to remove it.

You could add a "pending" sing under their sale sign. Once you sign the papers go take it up yourself!

No there is no law. Take it down and put it in garage.
