How Opendoor helped a couple of snowbirds fly.
Bought an Opendoor home in Phoenix, AZ
Most people wouldn’t say that selling their home was their favorite part of moving. Deanne Gosse is the exception. She and her husband bought their first home in Arizona as a vacation bungalow – a sunny escape from the cold of their native Newfoundland Canada.
When Deanne earned a visa enabling her to live and work in the U.S., the couple realized that their vacation home was too small to be a permanent solution. Plus, the commute to Deanne’s new job was an excruciating 90 minutes.
To put their home on the market the traditional way, they would’ve had to put all their furnishings and belongings in storage, spruce up the house, and do some landscaping in the backyard. Instead, Deanne sold to Opendoor and skipped the hassle. This gave her enough flexibility to figure out financing to purchase her new home, and move out on her own timeline. Not bad for someone who’d never sold a home in the U.S.
“ The convenience of selling the house on our own timeframe without having to clean, stage, and show it – I think that was the biggest advantage. ” – Deanne
With the sale completed, Deanne and her husband we’re able to focus on their next move. They searched through Opendoor and found the perfect place. They connected with Ali, an Opendoor home expert, and within a day, they were able to make an offer and close right away.
We’re proud to be able to simplify the buying and selling process for people like Deanne. Nothing makes us happier than giving people the freedom to move on to the next great thing.
