Litter on a stick? Real estate agent fined $2,750 for too many open house signs – Orange County Register

Litter on a stick? Real estate agent fined $2,750 for too many open house signs – Orange County Register: Jerry Del Mauro hoped to score a $1.4 million sale last month when he staged an open house near the water in Huntington Beach.

Instead of a sale, the Re/Max agent got a $2,750 fine for putting out too many open house signs.

Del Mauro said he had no choice. The house sat on an island at the end of a semi-desolate street almost 2 miles from the nearest traffic light. To guide buyers to his open house, he put out some�18�signs — 11 more than the city typically�allows.

A city code enforcement officer spotted the signs and issued a citation, fining him $250 per “excessive” sign.

“These open house sign laws are getting out of control,” said one of the 140 comments on Del Mauro’s Facebook post following the citation.
