Categories: Open House
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.
There are only two weeks left to shop before Christmas, so while the stores are packed this is a great time to go apartment shopping. You can safely assume that anyone holding an open house is clearly “motivated” so if your are a serious buyer and you find a great place at an undervalued list price, you have a great opportunity to snap it up before the rest of the buying market catches on. Think of it as a real estate Black Friday sale. Go look for some bargains!
When you look at the map, place markers are color coded:
- Studio & 1BRs are red
- 2BRs are green
- 3BR & Bigger are yellow
New listings are marked with a Push Pin icon.

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?
