When I think back to the spring of 2012, I don't have fond memories! My husband had received a job transfer from Michigan to Texas, and he had already moved to Texas for his job in February. Meanwhile, my boys and I were on our own in Michigan so they could finish school and we could sell our house.
I spent six LONG months desperately trying to keep our house clean at all times since we never knew when we'd have someone come by for a showing. That's SO hard when it's just you and two boys ages eight and five who seemed to be better at making messes than cleaning them up!
Plus, since the housing market was so bad at that time, it was emotionally exhausting wondering if our house was ever going to sell and how long I would have to live separate from my husband (and him from us). Plus, we didn't know how much the offer would be once we finally got one – so stressful!
That's why I wish that Opendoor had been around when we sold our house. Opendoor is a new way to sell your home. They make the selling process super easy, because you just visit the Opendoor website, answer a few quick questions about your home, and you get a free offer on your home, typically about a day later.
Opendoor uses both algorithms and humans to determine the fair market value of your house using information like your local market conditions, comparable sales in your area, and any unique characteristics or upgrades of your home.
Once you have your offer, you'll have a dedicated representative to help you go over the offer details and answer any questions you may have. You can sign the papers to sell your house and move anywhere from 3 to 60 days after getting your offer.
When you sell your home to Opendoor, you don't have to worry about keeping your home pristine for showings (especially great for families with kids or a pet), you don't have to worry about any required repairs or upgrades to get it ready to sell, and you don't have to wait for months like we did hoping you'll get an offer on your house! You can sell your house and move when you're ready on your time frame.
Opendoor will conduct an inspection before closing and take care of any required repairs, cleaning, and upgrades to get your house ready for showings while you move on with your life in your new home. Easy peasy!
Here's how Opendoor works:
- Provide some basic information about your home to help Opendoor give you an accurate offer on your home
- You'll be assigned a dedicated representative who will send you your offer, go over the offer details and answer all your questions
- Sign the contract to sell your house when you're ready
- Opendoor will inspect your home to determine any required repairs
- Opendoor will do a final walkthrough before closing
- Move to your next home
