Mappy Father’s Day – The Hoboken Open House Google Map for June 19th & 20th

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.

People often ask us how we put this map together.  It is a very tedious, time consuming task.  We go to every brokerage website, the MLS, the Hoboken Reporter, and several other sources and manually pull the information.  Why do we bother?  168Well, Dad’s don’t want to skimp when it comes to their kids, and we know that creating something of value takes time and effort.   We have some  imitators but they take shortcuts (i.e., they use automatic feeds) so the resulting maps are missing quite a bit of information.  If you care about something you should give it your attention.  Speaking of attention, go to the open houses on Saturday so you can give your Dad some attention on this Father’s Day Weekend (yes – that’s me and my Dad who proof reads all my posts) or get it from your kids if you’re lucky enough to be a Dad!

Here is the map:

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?
