At Opendoor, we’re on a mission to simplify the process of buying and selling homes. For most American families, their home is the most expensive asset they own—but it takes over 90 days and thousands of dollars to sell it. Opendoor empowers families with the freedom to move by making it possible to get an instant all-cash offer, and to close on a day of their choosing. We’re also re-inventing the process of buying homes, with all-day, on-demand open houses and a 30-day return policy. We’ve built an exceptional team, have raised over $300 million from top-notch investors, and are growing fast.
About our city offices
Our company is national, but many parts of what we do are local: we’re in the business of buying and selling homes, which we need to repair, clean and get ready for market. Our customers are also local: they look for a new home in a particular neighborhood or school district, and they sell in the same way. Our local offices are responsible for understanding and serving the local market and all of the homes we buy and sell there.
