The Hoboken and Downtown JC Open House Google Map for Sat. 2/19 and Sun. 2/20

Every Open House in Hoboken and Downtown Jersey City 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.

Our Hoboken Open House Google Map now includes open houses in Downtown Jersey City as well.  Many condo shoppers are considering  JC as well as Hoboken, so we have expanded our map coverage.


While hunting on-line for an appropriate President’s Day image to insert into this weekend’s post I found several quite patriotic, some satirical and some downright mean-spirited.  I decided to go with this simple presidential seal.  Although politics and the repercussions of political decision making have a profound impact on the real estate market, this is not a political site, and we’ll never use it as a soapbox to push an agenda.  However, on this President’s Day weekend, HREN wishes the very best to the current administration and whatever administration that follows, and hopes that the economy improves, housing prices rise and the young men and women of our military soon return home safely.

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?
