How does selling to Opendoor work?

We enable you to sell your home without listing on the market and move on your own timeline; no listings, no showings, and no months of uncertainty about when and where you’ll move to next. It’s a simpler, less stressful process, often called iBuying in the real estate industry. Here’s what it looks like:

Request an offer

Enter your address at opendoor.com, and tell us a bit about your home. You’ll then receive a competitive offer backed by local real estate expertise and current market data. Your offer will lay out our offer price, service charge, and estimated closing costs. You’ll also have an estimate of the net proceeds you can expect to take home after closing. The offer is free, and there’s no obligation.

Schedule a free home condition assessment

If you’re happy with your offer, you can e-sign the purchase agreement online. We’ll then connect you with a personal Home Advisor and you’ll schedule a free home condition assessment when it’s convenient for you. The purpose of the assessment is to verify the condition of the home and identify if any repairs are needed.

If our assessment turns up any needed repairs, we’ll ask for a credit and deduct the costs from your net proceeds. We aim to ask for only what we’ll need to spend on your home to help ensure its safety, structure, and functionality. Our goal is to charge you only what’s necessary for us to complete the repairs and to pass any discounts we receive from vendors directly to you. 

You’ll have a chance to review your net proceeds (the amount you’ll pocket at the end of the sale) with your Home Advisor one-on-one. If you change your mind or disagree with our repair request, you can cancel your contract without penalty anytime prior to close.Learn more about our repair process and common repair items we find.

Close when you’re ready

We’ll walk you through the steps of the closing process. You choose your closing date—the timeline is up to you. After closing, you get paid within a few days and move on to the next big thing.
