A powerful selling tool

Real estate signs are a must when selling your home. It is a great method of advertising for passersby. With a little patience and determination you can still install your sign into frozen ground.

Items you will need

  • For-sale sign
  • Cordless drill
  • 1-inch wide bit
Step 1

Place the real estate sign parallel to the spot in the frozen ground where it will be posted.

Step 2

Drill into the frozen earth about six inches straight down in front of the sign, one hole for each pole. This might take a little bit of pressure if the ground is really hard.

Step 3

Insert the sign poles into your newly made holes. Push down until the sign is secure.


  • To remove the sign, loosen the ground by pounding on the top end of each pole with a sledgehammer or mallet, then lift the sign out of the holes.
