Buying From Open Door ((FREE))

Opendoor currently works with customers in more than 50 markets, ranging from Albuquerque to Tampa. It differentiates its markets into three categories: a city where you can see your house to Opendoor, a city where you can buy an Opendoor house, or both. You can check its list of active cities to see if Opendoor operates in your area. This is the first step when deciding whether you want to work with the company.

It all starts by requesting an offer. It is free to receive an offer from Opendoor and there is no obligation to work with them. All you need is to submit your address on its website and answer a few questions about the features of your home. Within minutes, Opendoor will make a preliminary offer on your property. If you want a more accurate offer, send pictures or conduct a video walk-through of your home.

If you accept the final offer, you can pick your closing date. Opendoor requires a closing date within 14 to 60 days of the signed contract, although other options might be available in your market. The real estate market is constantly changing and its offer might be outdated 60 days from now.

The premise of an iBuyer is that the company will buy any house. However, you might find that some companies are pickier than others. To sustain its business model, Opendoor only makes offers on houses where it can make a profit on the home sale. (Remember, after the company buys your house, it flips it for a higher price.) Because of that, Opendoor has strict buying criteria that your house must meet.

As a buyer, you will also have the flexibility to select your closing date. This is one of the top benefits of buying from an iBuyer instead of purchasing an owner-occupied property where you have to work with their moving schedule.

They primarily service major metro areas. More cities have options with selling to Opendoor than buying from Opendoor. Setill, the company expands into new areas all the time, so check their service coverage chart to see if they operate where you live.

The same goes for buying from Opendoor vs. traditional home shopping. Buying from Opendoor might make the process quicker and easier, but working with a dedicated real estate agent could help you negotiate a better price or avoid specific pitfalls.

Opendoor seems willing to resolve these problems, even when they result from people failing to read the fine print. Before you enter into any transaction, make sure you fully understand the terms and fees.

However, on the open market, you could sell your home for more than Opendoor offers, especially if multiple buyers make competing offers and drive up the purchase price. You can even work with a discount broker to list your home for a reduced fee and maximize value.

Opendoor's preliminary offer is automatically generated, and the company will make it within 48 hours. Opendoor's final offer is based on a virtual home inspection, deductions for repairs, and its 5% service fee. Because of this, the final offer you receive from Opendoor may not be the same as the company's initial offer.

Opendoor buys more single-family houses than any other iBuyer and is active in 47 cities across the country. Customer reviews show that people who sell to Opendoor are generallysatisfied with how quick and easy the process is and how competitive their offers are. Data from iBuyer expert Mike DelPrete suggests that Opendoor usually makes higher offers than other iBuyers.[1] But, as with most iBuyers, Opendoor's offers are designed to be lower than actual market value.

Selling your single-family home on the open market with a real estate agent will likely net you more money than selling to Opendoor. Opendoor charges a 5% service fee, plus deductions for repairs and closing costs. Real estate agents typicallycharge a 6% commission, but you'll usually receive higher offers and have more control over repair costs.

Opendoor charges sellers a 5% service charge at the end of a home sale, which is slightly less than the typical realtor commission of 6%. However, Opendoor also doesn't make offers that are in line with what home sellers can expect to get on the openmarket, so it's likely that a realtor will still help you to net more money in the end.[3]

If you're concerned about fees associated with Opendoor's offer, Clever can connect you with top local real estate agents who charge just 1.5% to list your home. Clever works with partner agents from trusted brokerages likeRE/MAX, Keller Williams, and Coldwell Banker.

The Opendoor app allows you to manage your entire transaction with Opendoor on your smartphone, whether you're buying or selling. The app is convenient if you're comfortable doing a major transaction on your phone, but could be frustrating ifyou'd rather have a more personal touchpoint.

If you're buying a home from Opendoor, you or your buyer's agent can try to negotiate the price point, but according to Opendoor reviews, customers claimed the company likes to sell close to the listing price.

Sell your home with a click? A lot of things have changed about buying a home in the last ten years, from the way we shop for real estate (on line, or via mobile device) to the way we sign closing documents. And though the disruptors Redfin Inc., Zillow Inc. and Trulia Inc. have made searching for homes easier by taking the process online, the process of actually SELLING a home still has not really changed. Still pretty slow and cumbersome.

Selling a home can be full of uncertainty for many consumers who would rather focus on their next chapter than on the stresses of moving. Potential sellers on Zillow apps and sites may request and view an offer directly from Opendoor and easily compare it to an open-market sale using a real estate agent. Opendoor offers will be available on Zillow, and customers will be able to use the service as a standalone offering or package it with other Zillow home shopping services such as financing, closing and agent selection. Additionally, Zillow customers will be able to work with a licensed Zillow advisor who will serve as a helpful guide in understanding these options.

Many important factors could cause actual future events to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this press release, including but not limited to each of Zillow's and Opendoor's success in retaining or recruiting, or changes required in, its officers, key employees or directors; the impact of the regulatory environment and complexities with compliance related to such environment; various factors relating to Zillow's and Opendoor's respective business, operations and financial performance, including, but not limited to, the impact and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic; the ability to respond to general economic conditions and the health of the U.S. residential real estate industry. The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and uncertainties described under the caption "Risk Factors" in each of Zillow's and Opendoor's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), as updated by other filings with the SEC.

Neither Zillow nor Opendoor give any assurance that they will achieve their respective expectations.

A day after Zillow's stock fell to a 16-month low, Opendoor shares soared as much as 19%. The San Francisco-based company, which went public late last year through a special purpose acquisition company, pioneered the instant-buying (or iBuying) market, allowing homeowners to sell their property online for cash, rather than going through an extended bidding, sales and closing process.

Opendoor is scheduled to report third-quarter earnings next Wednesday, so investors will get a clearer picture of how the company navigated the price volatility that caused Zillow to take a massive write-down, lay off 25% of its staff, and conclude that it could no longer justify buying and selling homes.

Eric Jackson, president of EMJ Capital and an Opendoor investor, equated Zillow's departure from instant buying to the decision by a host of internet companies to give up on search two decades ago, eliminating Google's biggest competitive threats. 041b061a72
