I’m posting my Thanksgiving picture this week because there’ll be no map next weekend.  Most buyers, sellers and Realtors take the weekend following the Thanksgiving holiday off, and Lori and I are no exception.  This year we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving by deep frying a turkey in the yellow parking lot near the D10 pole at the new Meadowlands stadium.  If you’re going to the game, please do stop by and say hi.  Lori and I are thankful for a great many things this year including our successful real estate business, the Jets 7 – 2 record, our family’s good health, the loyalty of our HREN  blog readers and most of all, the continued good health of our dog Sempai.  May you all enjoy as much good fortune.

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?
