In 2020, Margaret needed to sell an inherited home in Arizona quickly, with little time to prepare it for sale. She reached out to Opendoor, and was very happy with how smooth and easy the transaction was. So when she and her husband were ready to retire and downsize from their San Diego home, it was a no-brainer for Margaret to sell to Opendoor again to avoid all the hassles of open houses, staging, and timing. She and her husband were simply eager to move on to their new lives as retirees. Looking back, she says, “The sale allowed us to move to a home and location better suited to our new lives. With an all-cash transaction and a timeframe we chose, we could search confidently for a new home.”

Since it all started with our first customer in Phoenix in 2014, the certainty of an Opendoor cash offer has resonated with more than 250,000 customers across 50 markets. For the past 10 years, we have committed to creating a service where all sellers can easily start their home-buying and -selling journey, saving countless hours of stress and hassle that are typically part of the traditional real estate process. 

Repeat Opendoor customers frequently tell us they love three things about our offerings: (1) the ease of the Opendoor process, (2) responsive communication from our team, and (3) the smooth transition as they move into the next phase of their lives. 

  • Nancy from Raleigh: This is the second time we’ve used Opendoor. The first time was for a purchase, and this time was for a sale. Opendoor made it super easy and explained everything each step of the way. My rep was very responsive and answered all my questions.

  • Javario from San Antonio: This is our second time working with Opendoor, and once again we were not disappointed. The offer was competitive and the process was seamless. I made changes to the closing and move out date numerous times and there was never an issue. Our rep advocated for us and delivered! He kept us informed throughout the entire process. We will not hesitate to choose them again!

  • Kyle from Orlando: This was the second time using Opendoor — first time buying a house and now selling. The selling process was so easy. It took about two weeks from initial contact to closing and almost all steps in the process were virtual. They came in with a very competitive offer and followed through exactly as outlined in the offer. Couldn't be happier with Opendoor and highly recommend them for your realty buying and selling options.

Now happily retired, our trusted customer Margaret also has some advice for anyone getting a home ready to sell:  “Be thorough and honest in the description of your house in order to get a realistic offer; don’t hesitate if you are on the fence. There is no obligation if you decide not to go forward. Trust the process.”
