Be careful if you see a for sale sign in your yard and you have no idea why it's there.If you find a random "For Sale" sign in your yard, and your house isn't for sale, robbers may be casing your home to see if you're in town. If you don't take down the sign then they will know that you're gone and they will rob you.

There are some cases of this happening in the Dallas and Austin Texas area. The police have agreed that this could be a very tricky way to see if you are home. With so many houses for sale in some neighborhoods these robberies go virtually unnoticed. Be careful if you see this and make sure to remove the sign ASAP!
