You see the signs all over town, but you see them most often in marginalized communities.
Apparently, residents of a Newark, NJ community were fed up with the signs, so they removed them. (Read NY Times article about Newark here.)
Newark has embarked on a series of events to educate homeowners about fraudulent homeowner-assistance programs. In one such event in March, residents fanned out through Newark and took down more than 700 “We Buy Houses” signs that officials say are posted by people looking to swindle troubled owners.
We’d love to see these signs torn down in Baltimore. All of them. In fact, it’s illegal to post signs on city property in Baltimore — the next time you’re out cleaning your community, rip down unwanted slumlord advertising!
