Selling your current home

General

What if I am already working with an agent on listing my home?

Opendoor’s home reserve program is offered by Opendoor and the Opendoor Brokerages. If you have already signed a listing agreement with an agent, ask them to reach out to agents@opendoor.com to see if they are eligible to participate in our partner agent program.

Listing

What if my home does not sell within 90 days?

If your home does not sell within 90 days of listing, you have the option to sell your home to Opendoor to free up the funds to take ownership of your new home.

What if my home does not sell for as much money as I was expecting?

We work with you and your lender to make sure that you will be able to afford the mortgage on your new home, even if your home sells for less than you were hoping.

What are the costs and fees?

Opendoor’s home reserve program costs the same as a traditional realtor: a 6% listing fee on the home you are selling. Because Opendoor also gets paid a commission by the seller of your new home, we are able to invest in a better experience for the same cost to our customers.

Does Opendoor help with home renovation?

With Opendoor’s concierge program, Opendoor will front up to $10,000 of home repairs or upgrades so you don’t have to pay out-of-pocket before your home sells.

Reserving your new home

What homes qualify for the home reserve program?

The main criteria for the home reserve program are:

  • The home must be is a single family home or townhome in Opendoor's Phoenix or Raleigh-Durham service areas, with a purchase purchase price of between $100,000 and $750,000.
  • The home must not be a pre-fabricated or a manufactured home, on a lot bigger than 2 acres, have any structures in a flood zone, or currently be in a foreclosure, probate, or short sale.

How do I qualify for the home reserve program?

Before making an offer on a property, you must provide a pre-approval letter from a licensed mortgage lender that states the amount the lender is prepared to lend you and is good for at least 90 days.

The letter should confirm that the lender has made this initial credit decision based on a review of documentation to verify your income, assets, debts, credit, and employment.

What payments do I make on my new home while it is reserved?

Opendoor will cover the costs of your new home for up to 120 days or until your existing home sells and you are able to take ownership of the new home.

If you would like to move into the new home before you take ownership, you just cover the cost of utilities and living expenses. We credit the rent charged back to you when you sell your current home.

What if I already have an agent working with me on my home purchase?

Opendoor’s home reserve program is offered by Opendoor and the Opendoor Brokerages. If you have already signed a binding agreement with an agent, ask them to reach out to agents@opendoor.com to see if they are eligible to participate in our partner agent program.

Am I limited to buying an Opendoor home?

No, the home reserve program is available to purchase any home that qualifies, regardless of whether it is owned by Opendoor.

Do I have to use Opendoor Home Loans for the purchase of my next home?
