Yard Sign $100 deposit + $50 fee/6 months
We encourage you to use our Mode Realty Yard signs, and charge a deposit of $100 (refundable upon return of sign) and $50 (up to 6 months of use). The purpose of the yard sign is to encourage cooperating brokers to readily show your property. For Sale By Owner signs can scare Realtors into thinking they will not make money or need to ask their buyer client to cover their commission which can lead to them steering clients away from your property. The office number on the sign goes to a Google Voice account that transcribes messages, and will be forwarded to your email for you to follow up with leads. Billing is on delivery of sign, and will be renewed at the end of 180 days.
Electronic Lock Box $200 Deposit + $30/month Fee

Mode Realty offers use of a Sentricard box ($200 deposit and $30/month fee). Billing is done 3 months at a time, and will be rounded to the nearest 15 days. You set the schedule, and buyer's brokers call our staffed line to schedule.
