The Hoboken Open House Google Map for Sat. 10/16 and Sun. 10/17

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.

FOL_logoI was speaking with a few co-workers today and I mentioned that we are hosting a Novel Night dinner on Saturday evening, and was surprised that they didn’t know what that was.  Every year the Friends of the Hoboken Public Library organizes Novel Night , a series of 20 themed dinner parties hosted by volunteers to benefit the library.  Last time Lori and I chose Ernest Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises” and had a Spanish tapas party.  This year we’ve chosen Anne Rice’s “Interview with a Vampire” and we plan to have spicy Bloody Mary’s, jambalaya and deep fried turkey.  It’s a lot of fun and the proceeds go to a great cause.  I know our dinner is sold out, but there may be some other spaces available, so if you’re interested in going to a great event, or perhaps hosting one next year, I suggest you give the Friends of the Hoboken Public Library a call (201 795-5410) or email them ([email protected].)

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?
