Key Points 

  • 46% of respondents feel financially secure.

  • 75% of respondents say having more money in the bank would help to mitigate their financial stresses.

  • 56% of respondents spend 30 minutes or more every day thinking about their finances.

If you’ve found yourself thinking about your finances more than usual recently, you’re not alone. Housing and stock markets have been anything but predictable, and recent increases in interest rates can make life feel a little more expensive. 

Opendoor’s first-ever Financial Wellness Study aims to shed some light on just how much of a pinch folks are feeling in their pockets.  

Of the prospective and current homeowners surveyed, Opendoor found that 46% of respondents feel secure about their current financial situation. This comes following news of inflation hitting 4 decade highs. 

What’s causing financial stress?

Understandably, 2022’s gloomy market performance has many people thinking about their own wallets. 

Opendoor asked folks what might make them feel more secure about their finances. If winning the lottery wasn’t on the table, the two most popular responses were: 

  • 75%: more money in the bank

  • 70%: a bigger paycheck

When respondents were asked to list their most stressful financial burdens, the top three answers were: 

  • 81%: buying a home

  • 77%: saving for retirement

  • 46%: saving for a child’s education
