It is important to be a good steward with real estate sign placement and use discretion and common sense when putting signs up. Signs are never allowed in the public right-of-way (which includes sidewalks) and balloons are not to be attached to signs in any jurisdiction throughout Sacramento County or the City of West Sacramento.
California Civil Code Section 713 sets the legal ground work for real estate signs. This section states that an owner of property, or their agent, is allowed to advertise the sale or lease of a property on site in plain view of the public. This advertisement may include directions to the property, the owner or agent’s name, address, and telephone number. Local governments are permitted to regulate the display or placement of these signs on public and private right–of–way.
