Important Reminder About Real Estate Sign Placement in Charlotte

The City of Charlotte is starting to crack down on improperly placed real estate signs throughout its jurisdiction.

While Matthews and other Towns have different regulations on signage, it is important for home builders and REALTORS to remember that Charlotte only allows placement of real estate weekend directional signs (WEDS) between 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and 6 p.m. on Sunday. Other WEDS regulations in the City are as follows:

  • Signs may not be placed within 11 feet of the edge of the pavement of any road.
  • Signs shall not exceed two in number per property being advertised and not be located more than one half a mile from the property being advertised.
  • Signs shall not be placed on trees, utility poles, traffic control signs, lights or devises, or within a sight distance triangle

If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please contact D. Mark Fowler, Code Enforcement & Zoning Supervisor at the City of Charlotte, at dfowler@charlottenc.gov.
