As a long-time Realtor in Steamboat, I have seen the rise and fall of the real estate market on more than one occasion. With the tremendous amount of properties for sale these days, the primary crop sprouting up this spring is the real estate sign.
The city currently is reviewing the sign code, and I feel that they should prohibit the use of real estate signs.
Other resort towns have adopted this ordinance, and I feel strongly that Steamboat should do the same. Simply stated, the signs are an eyesore.
If someone wants to advertise a property for sale, they can do it in other ways that do not detract from the appeal of our wonderful community.
