The Hoboken Open House Google Map for Sat. 10/23, Sun. 10/24 and Tues. 10/26

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.

Condo Crawl 10 26 2010Do you enjoy a good pub crawl?  Well, this coming Tuesday (10/26 from 6 to 8pm) Century 21 is hosting an Open House Condo Crawl.  The concept is simple – since many people go away on the weekend, or have other commitments like going to a Jets or Giants game, Century 21 has scheduled weekday evening open houses at 11 of their listings.  The theme of this Condo Crawl is 2BR+ condos for sale.  You can go visit any or all of the apartments on the Condo Crawl on your own, or if you prefer a guided tour, stop by the Century 21 office at 220 Washington St. and join a group lead by one of the knowledgable C21 agents.  It promises to be a great way to see some terrific properties.  Lori and I will be greeting people at 727 Monroe and 1110 Park.  If you’re a fan of this blog, please do stop by and say hi.

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 live in NJ and my girlfriend lives 1 hour, 15 mniutes away in an Outer Borough. It’s a distance, but we make it work. Sure, I wish I could see her on the spur of the moment and I wish there weren’t a relatively large expense involved in getting out to her, but I love her, she loves me and the extra effort to get to her is well worth it. There are some advantages to dating someone who lives in the suburbs. Road trips are easier when your Sig. Other has a car. Do you like hiking, kayaking, or skiing? Again, hanging out in the suburbs makes that easier. My girlfriend loves to go running and actually enjoys running where I live. Instead of taking a subway to Central Park to have an uncongested place to run, she can just step out my front door and start running right there. Don’t many of you New Yorkers who want to have children plan to move to the suburbs eventually anyway? Finally, your suburbanite boyfriend will _still_ be spending a lot of time with you in NY anyway. You can still do Broadway, wine bars, Mets games etc.Err, there are only 90 single men for every 100 single women in New York, the worst gender ratio for women of any major American city and a raw number that doesn’t include the fact that there are more gay men than gay women in NY. It would thus behoove the women of New York to give suburban men (whose personalities and looks they find appealling) a chance. Look at it as an opportunity to get to know a new environment.
