Local Yard signs show up in the front yards of homes and businesses from time to time for many different reasons. They come in all shapes and sizes as well as color schemes that are as unique as their owner. Regardless of when they are put out, the main purpose of local yard signs is to get some sort of message out. During an election year local yard signs are very popular as many residences in the neighborhood are eager to show their support for one candidate or the other. A very strategic move made by party campaign managers is to use the partys own members to get the candidates name out. Party Members can make their voice heard by using local yard signs. Without a doubt one of the most common of all local yard signs is the For Sale sign. Realtors want to make sure potential buyers know which real estate company it is that has the home or property listed. They have their own company logos made to advertise who they are. The company with the most local yard signs can proudly boast that they hold the title of the Real Estate Company with the most properties listed. Regardless of what they have to say there are two basic types of local yard signs; those that are professionally custom made and those that are homemade. The majority of homemade local yard signs are those used to advertise a yard sale. In yard sale circles frugalness is often considered a badge to be worn with pride.
