Several weeks ago, we took a look at how easy it can be to sell a home using popular iBuying platform Opendoor. From uploading some facts about your home to receiving a cash offer within 24 hours, the days of decluttering, frantically cleaning, and schlepping your family away for hours to accommodate open house scheduling can be a thing of the past. Selling a home to Opendoor is just that… a sale directly to the company. From that point on, Opendoor takes on the process of preparing that home for prospective buyers.
As we mentioned in the last article, selling a home to Opendoor is quick, convenient, and… dare we say… painless. Good news: the buying process through Opendoor can be all those things, and more. Opendoor currently sells homes in more than 20 markets throughout the United States. Last year alone, there were more than 800,000 visits to Opendoor homes, averaging approximately 2,000 home visits daily.
In each market, Opendoor assesses the neighborhoods where they know buyers are looking to move, aims to ensure the homes are up to market standards and expectations, and then sells to buyers at market-competitive prices. Since launching in Orlando in late 2017, Opendoor has served more than 1,800 local buyers and sellers.
But how might a prospective homebuyer find their dream home through Opendoor? It all starts with browsing through Opendoor’s mobile app, which is available on both Android and iOS devices. Using the app, buyers can zero in on markets, communities, and price-points that are within their target ranges. Users can drill down even further to explore homes of a certain size (square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms), school districts, and amenities, such as the ever-popular swimming pool here in sunny, hot Florida.
Adding even more to Opendoor’s “cool and unique” factor is the fact that interested buyers can tour Opendoor’s for-sale homes at virtually any time that is convenient for them. Using the mobile app, which acts as the key to unlock Opendoor’s listed properties, potential buyers can stop by an Opendoor home to view it anytime between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. local time, 7 days a week. Imagine the possibilities of seeing exactly how far the bus stop is from that home at the actual times students are getting on or off the bus. Or consider how much you might glean about a home and a neighborhood by stopping by after sunset when most residents are home and you can gauge whether there are noisy neighbors or friendly kids around the same ages as your own.
In addition, Opendoor makes it as easy as possible to buy a home. When a buyer is ready to move forward with purchasing an Opendoor home, a dedicated home advisor from the Opendoor team will work with the buyers from offer to move-in. Opendoor prides itself on offering buyers and sellers 100% transparency on homes, pricing, and the process. In fact, Opendoor is so confident that buyers will love the homes they purchase that the company offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on every Opendoor home sold. If a buyer doesn’t love their home for any reason, Opendoor will buy it back (subject to guarantee terms).
Plus, if a homeowner is selling their home to Opendoor and is looking to buy another home through Opendoor, they’re actually able to help line up both the purchase and sale of both those homes in one simple, seamless trade-in transaction.
