Visit a home when it’s convenient for you

Not everyone wants to spend their weekend visiting open houses. If you’re visiting an Opendoor home, you can tour our homes on your schedule, any day of the week from 6am to 9pm–no appointment needed. When you arrive at the door, use the Opendoor app to instantly unlock the home and get inside. Alternatively, you can use our text-to-enter service to gain access. Here’s more info on how to visit an Opendoor home.

If you’re interested in a non-Opendoor home, you can book an on-demand tour for any home through the Open Listings app.

Ready to buy? You’ve got options

When you select “Buying options” on any listing, you can choose from buying directly from us, buying with an agent you’re working with, or we can refer you to a top local agent in your area.

In Dallas Fort-Worth, when you’re ready to make an offer, you also have the option to be introduced to an Open Listings agent, who will support you as little or as much as you need in the process.

Simple and stress-free

Once you’ve found a home you love, you can submit an offer online, directly in the app, or by email to If you have an agent, they can submit an offer on your behalf. We typically respond to offers within 48 hours. Once you sign your purchase contract, we’ll help you through each step from scheduling a free Home Condition Assessment to choosing a move-in date.

At this point, your lender will likely require a home appraisal to verify the value of the home—this is standard. We also strongly recommend you schedule your own home assessment separate from the Opendoor Home Condition Assessment; it’s always good to have two sets of eyes. Once the above steps are complete and your financing is secured, you choose the closing date and move-in date. This is typically 20-30 days from the time you sign the contract. We hand you the keys when you’re ready.

30-day satisfaction guarantee

Every Opendoor home comes with a 30-day Opendoor Guarantee because life happens. Buying a home is one of the biggest financial transactions most people make in a lifetime. We want you to feel confident that the place you live is the place you can call home.
