We had a horrible time locating a home within our price range in a suitable neighborhood. My wife, ever-growing frustrated with the search, downloaded their phone app.
We found several homes that fit what we were looking for. The next step was a great experience; no waiting for an agent, hassle-free walking through with information on the kitchen counter!
Simply open the app and, if the home is available, you unlock the door from the app! We did visit a couple of listings that were already under contract by the time we arrived to walk through. No problem, move on to the next.
We finally found our home. Opendoor accepted our offer and, as it turned out, was $5K higher than the appraisal. No problem, they dropped the price to meet the appraised value.
They supplied us with their inspection report (we also did our own) along with work/repair orders. We discovered their contractor did about half of what they said they repaired. Upon bringing it to their attention, all the necessary work was completed before the closing, which was a week later! They repaired everything that required attention!
Here's what really blew us away. It's an 18-year-old house with the original roof. We asked for the damaged shingles and flashing be replaced. They replaced the entire roof! New architectural shingles, felt underlayment, drip edge, flashing, everything, including the back porch roof. While there are some personal touches we plan to make like replacing the laminate flooring with ceramic tile, this is move-in ready!
No hassle walkthrough, the full disclosure of the condition, repairs done before closing and no bickering back and forth about who pays, repairs or attends to anything. What could be easier? Even our agent, who's dealt with Opendoor on several other transactions, was very impressed with how easy they are to work with!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
