CT town bans ‘For Sale’ signs on homes

Realtors in one upper-crust New England town where celebrities and CEOs live side-by-side on well-kempt estates are so worried about the housing market that they have taken the counter-intuitive step of banning “for sale” signs.

The Board of Realtors in New Canaan, Conn., where Harry Connick Jr., Paul Simon and NBC newsman Brian Williams have homes, voted to take down all such signs by July 1, and the Town Council could make it an ordinance after a six-month trial period.

    If it’s so great why does so many people want to get out?

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
