Where do We return Your Signs After We Have Sold?

 If you have the poly bag signs – they are disposable. If you wish to go green – you can mail them back to us and we will repurpose them.

For metal framed signs:

Do not return the signs until “After Closing”… just in case something goes wrong between pending & sold.

Signs can be dropped off at two different locations:

Please place the signs inside the beige vertical storage shed. The shed has our site name & logo on it. If the shed is full, place the signs against the shed’s front doors.
Please do not knock or ring the door bell. These are resident’s homes. The owner’s have been gracious enough to allow their homes to be used as a drop off location for my signs. I will obtain the signs from them, and mail your deposit as soon as I can.
Sign drop off Location #1):
11527 1st St E. Milan, IL

It is required that you leave a note in the info tube (or taped to the steel portion of the sign) with your complete contact information: This information is necessary so I know who the signs came from, and where to mail the deposit to. If any information is left out, I may not be able to complete your refund request.

How do I add an open house to my advertisement?

Do you have open house signs?

Our new sign designs come with a blank center space allowing you to write your open house times on the main sign. The new poly sign design also comes with arrow stickers so you may use it as a directional sign as well. If you need additional signs, we can mail them to you. There will be a shipping & handling fee for each sign mailed. You may also find open house signs at the local hardware stores or online shops.

Do you charge closing costs or other fees?

Qchomeshow.com does “not” have you sign a contract, collect a commission, or have any closing costs whatsoever.

You only pay us for your virtual tour ad, sign deposits (if any), travel fee (if beyond our travel zone), and that is it.

If you choose the MLS package, the “agent” will have you sign a listing contract, and will collect a commission “if” he sells the property. If you sell the property – you do not owe the agent another dime!

20 Crucial Questions you should ask before choosing where to advertise your property for sale

What are your rates for advertising a property for sale?

All the information about our services and prices can be found by clicking here –> packages & pricing.

Can I advertise on other websites as well as your site?

YES. Your advertising dollars are just that, YOURS! We will not tell you how to spend your money or forbid you to advertise on our site exclusively. It has been brought to my attention that “other” websites insist on this, but we would NEVER infringe on our client’s right to advertise their homes whenever and wherever they please. (Yes, agents are welcome to advertise as well).

Can I use the photos you took on other sites, etc?

The pictures taken are property of quadcityhomeshow.com.

Recently, we have created a temporary policy to see if allowing the photos on Zillow/Trulia will work without any problems.

Please read the blog link for details -> https://www.qchomeshow.com/zillow-and-trulia-advertising/

 Refer to our terms of use policy.

Do you have tips to prepare the home for photos?

What are the terms for listing a home on your site?

If I decide to list my home with an agent while listing my home on your site, will you allow me to use them as my contact?

*Yes. If you decide to list your home with an agent and want us to change your contact information to that of your agent, all that needs to be done is to have your agent contact us and give permission to use their logo and name. We will also scan and place you agent’s business card on the site FREE of charge. The qchomeshow.com yard sign must be maintained in the front yard for the duration of the ad per the terms of use, and please remove the lower for sale by owner panel.

*NOTE: There are certain agents that do not allow you to keep your qchomeshow.com ad when listing with them. ALWAYS ask prior to signing. You may assume they would tell you this prior to signing, but in many cases, they have not. If you wish to keep your qchomeshow.com advertising while listing with an agent – be sure to interview several agents and different brokerages prior to making a decision and don’t forget to ask if they wish to have their contact information placed on your qchomeshow.com ad. If they don’t allow you to keep your qchomeshow.com ad, you should ask yourself if they are truly acting in your best interests. The advertising is paid for – “why” would they just throw that away???

If I sell my home before the time period is up, can I get a prorated refund?

There are no prorated refunds. 

Can I sell by owner AND by on the MLS?

Do I have to sign a contract?

Not with us. Quad City Home Show does not require you to sign any contracts. The conditions for listing, advertising, and using this site are all detailed on the “terms and conditions page. If you decide to use the MLS package – you will have to sign a contract with the listing agent.

How much will it cost me to renew my current listing?

 Please call us at 309-756-SHOW (7469) to discuss renewal. With our new site design, we have yet to add the renewal rates to the payment processor.  FYI – You are always welcome to upgrade to the MLS package – you initial package cost ($990 – your original cost = around $740-790) <– What is this? Click here for more info

Why Don’t you place “New” next to your new listings?

Why is the address on the sold properties not complete?

As of April 2018, the sold properties include all the info on the ad. Prior to that, the full info was not added: To protect the new homeowner’s and the seller’s privacy, we have decided that it is not a good practice to let the viewer’s view the interior photos, complete address, and contact information after the home has been sold. I am sure you will agree, you would not want this information accessible  after the home is sol if “you” were either the buyer or seller.

Do you track “hits” or “pageloads” of every listing?
