After hearing concerns that the Borough of Oceanport did not allow the placement of open-house directional signs, REALTORS® from the Monmouth County Association of REALTORS® (MCAR) and NJAR® began working with the Mayor and Council in Oceanport to request a change in their sign ordinance.
On April 16, 2009, the Oceanport Borough Council approved an ordinance permitting the placement of two temporary, directional signs in the public right-of-way advertising an open house. In addition, as was the case under the previous ordinance, one temporary sign is allowed on the property being sold. Under the new ordinance, no sign can block a site triangle or have any attachments such as balloons that can obstruct a driver's view.
This is great new for homeowners and Realtors where the houses were more inland and not of the main road this way people driving by can find the house even if they did not see the ads.
