How can I get started?

*All first-time buyers will be required to complete a Masters Sales Agreement (MSA). The MSA is a legally-binding document that must be signed by the party who is financially responsible for paying for the ad. The Santa Monica city attorney, city manager, and city clerk will sign this document as well. The process takes roughly 3 weeks to complete.
