Real estate signs shed light on listings

They're not lawn-landing UFOs, they're just trying to sell homes

Lawn signs are going high-tech. A new solar-powered, LED-lit, computer-chip-equipped signpost can keep real estate lawn signs lit around-the-clock.

After a test run in Florida, the developers are checking into mass production for the signposts, which can shed light on standard real estate signs. They hope to sell the signposts for $199 to real estate agents around the country.

“The largest point of sale item is the lawn sign in the real estate industry,” said Louis Dvorak, whose brother, James, designed the signpost.
