No, not my house. My neighbor's house was sold in less 7 days. A sign proudly claims this fact in the yard. We'll ignore the "coming soon" sign in the yard for the last 3 weeks. It seems to be a trend around here with real estate agents. Place "coming soon" signs in the yard for a period of time. Then place "for sale" sign in the yard and a few days later brag about the quick sale. Several homes by different agents have sold in my neighborhood this way. If you want to impress me, sell a house in less than 7 days without presale advertising.
