3/26 & 3/27 Hoboken/Downtown JC Open House Google Map

The Original and Best Open House Google Map

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.

We have once again improved our map to provide you with better pictures, more listing information and a faster user interface.

No more need to register! No silly form to fill out! From now on, to see the OPEN HOUSE MAP just click on the image of the map below this sentance (clicking the same map image that is always in our sidebar works too):


When you look at the map, place markers are color coded:

New listings are marked with a Push Pin icon (in the same color scheme.)

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?

    What about foreclosures in Hoboken? What is the best way to get information on such properties?

    Hi Lori – Big changes are happening in the mortgage business. Starting 4/1, new mortgage regulations will be in place to affect how mortgage rates are quoted and how mortgage brokers are getting paid. More profound rule changes in Fannie and Freddie are also being unveiled today. All these macro events will affect the real estate market in general and the Hoboken market in particular. Can we have discussion about these changes?

    I could be mistaken, but the changes seem to be positive, basically requiring banks to have skin in the game rather than just package and resell. Banks will hopefully think twice before risky lending. Even after the collapse and all the mess, there ARE still banks that are not doing their DD, and instead opt for raising interest.

    I wish I’m a bank. I get to do risky business, I get the government to subsidize my INSANE interest payments (look at loans in other countries), I get a bail out when I completely screw up, And, I get to yell and moan when I’m required to have 5% skin in the game. Seriously, where do I sign?
