The Hoboken Open House Google Map for Sat. 10/9 and Sun. 10/10

Every Open House in Hoboken this weekend as compiled from the Midweek and Hoboken Reporter, the MLS, every Realtor website and email and Craigslist courtesy of the Turoff Realty Team.

Jets Giants HelmetsThe Giants are on the road, the J – E – T – S, Jets!, Jets!, Jets! play on Monday night and the weather is supposed to be beautiful.  Sounds like the perfect opportunity to go out and visit some open houses.  Have a great weekend!



When you look at the map, place markers are color coded:

Did you know that the agent hosting an open house is the Seller’s agent?Whether it is the actual listing agent or any other agent from the same company, that person legally represents the sellers.  Not only that, the hosting agent – by law – has a fiduciary duty to the seller to get that seller the highest possible pricefor that property.  Do you think it might be a conflict of interestfor that same person to then represent you?  Many people think so.  In fact, in many states (other than NJ) it is illegal for the same agent to represent the seller and also work with the buyer.

Did you know that when you go to an open house you can see the property at the open house on your own and, if you like it, go back to it with your own agent?You can!  So if you see something you like at an open house you might want to consider finding your own agent who does not work for the seller.Just because you walk into an open house does not mean that the hosting (seller’s) agent gets to “claim” you as his or her customer – even if you “sign in”.  You are the consumer.  You are spending your hard earned money on what is probably the biggest investment you will make in your life.  Don’t you think you should be able to work with whom you choose?

    I was just wondering what happened to the comment I posted yesterday, about transforming Hoboken into an artistic and cultural mecca–something that would clearly benefit all our residents; including, for us real estate agents, our current and future clients.

    John – While I appreciate your ingenuity with creating a new stigma around Hoboken, I have to disagree that the our focus should be on adding culture and “edgieness” to our town.

    Before we spend time and dollars on arts and culture, I believe the city must first focus on updating our infrastructure and social services.

    1. The crumbling piers and waterfront from 14th St, all the way down to Sinatra field need to be remediated.

    2. The flood zones in the fourth ward and Western edge of town need to be addressed and corrected.

    3. Our muncipal budget process needs a complete over-haul. We need to regain control, from the state, our budget process and prove that we can draft and execute a budget plan that makes economic sense for the city and the residents.

    3a. Property tax assessment revaluation. There is ZERO reason why the city should not undertake a 100% unit re-assessment. Only once this is complete can we begin to have serious budget conversations.

    4. Municipal Services – Police, Fire, HPU and HUMC all need to be examined to ensure that funds are being appropriated effeciently and properly. This is not an attack of fraud, but there is not enough transparency in how these above entities interact with the city.

    As a prospective future buyer, these are my concerns. The addition of art house, indie movie theaters etc would be nice. But they do nothing to address the real problems that the city is facing.
