Debbie Reynolds our MLS does not allow - however, I should start using it in posts and in my online marketing.

I am not Debbie but I have seen them often around my neighborhood. A great idea.

Yes, and we pre-market listings once we have a listing agreement - especially if we are waiting for repairs or cleanup before we go live on the MLS.

I haven't used coming soon on signs.  Though, I have put signs up for listings that were coming soon as standard for sale signs.

We don't use signs but do send email blasts for "Coming Soon" listings. They've been very effective.

Yes, I actually haven't invested in any yet but I'm seriously considering them.  With our market being as hot as it is, I've seen numerous listings get sold even before getting on MLS, with just "Coming Soon" signs... In fact on the same street, I saw the "Coming Soon" house get sold faster than one that went through the traditional listing process.  Maybe the anticipation/mystery, has something to do with it - it tends to create an interest almost immediately...

Yes and yes it is here and our local MLS says there is noting the agents are violating.  We've been doing this for several years now

WE can't market any property without a listing agreement.  I believe that is State Law

I don't use coming soon signs but do online marketing before we are live.  It really works well.

We're allowed to use them, but they really aren't that popular.

I typically haven't used these signs, as most of the time property goes on the market very quickly after we sign a listing agreement. Our mls does allow this, Debbie, so long as we have a bona fide listing agreement in place.

Debbie, we just had our Real Estate Commission make a new ruling - unless it is specifically in a listing agreement, the "coming soon" sign cannot be out more than 72 hours prior to entering into MLS.   I do use these signs.

I have started using them, had a signed listing and a buyer contacted the seller. She referred them to me.
