Corrales covers ‘For Sale’ signs to remind relators to pay

House for Sale

CORRALES, N.M. (AP) – Those looking for property in the Albuquerque suburb of Corrales need only look for homes with black trash bags out front after the city covered 35 “For Sale” signs.

Mayor Scott Kominiak tells the Albuquerque Journal that the signs were covered in an effort to enforce a local ordinance that charges a $35 fee for every sign.

He says the sign fee serves as a reminder to real estate agents that paperwork on their home sales should be filed in Corrales, not Rio Rancho or Albuquerque where most agents’ offices are.

Kominiak says agents had paid for the 35 bagged signs as well as some that had not been covered. The coverage was a crackdown on sign ordinance violations. Agents are responsible for removing the bags themselves. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
