Opendoor Offers A New Way To Sell or Buy Your Home in Dallas-Fort Worth

The Digital Real Estate Platform Making It Easier To Buy And Sell Homes

BY // 03.22.22

Real estate and the housing market are on the tips of everyone’s tongues these days in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. For those looking to jump into the housing frenzy, Opendoor is here to make the whole process a breeze. From selling to buying (and everything in between), Opendoor is the expert in navigating various transitions and life stages.

But don’t just take our word for it — the proof is in the Texas pudding. North Texan Kenneth Powell and his family had been living in their first home in DFW for 13 years when they decided they were ready to move and build their forever home. As a mortgage loan officer, Powell understood how common it was for financing to fall through — even in a hot sellers’ market. He wanted to find the most efficient, stress-free, and seamless way to sell their home and move. 

“Amidst the pandemic, we loved how Opendoor’s self-guided home assessment and check-out process were fully digital, quick, and safe,” Powell tells PaperCity. “It was also a huge relief that we didn’t need to worry about the hassle of putting our things in storage to get the house ready to show. Using Opendoor was a huge win for us! We’re grateful for the smooth and easy process, and recommend Opendoor as a one-stop-shop to everyone we know.”

A one-stop shop sounds like a dream to us, especially when it seems as though more and more people are paying cash, offering many multiples above the asking price, and jumping on homes when they’ve only been on the market a few hours. But those hurdles don’t faze Opendoor. They are the expert when it comes to not only finding your dream home in the array of DFW neighborhoods but also ensuring you have a competitive offer.

“There are options in Dallas for the type of home, neighborhood, and lifestyle that suit each homebuyer best,” says Opendoor General Manager Sharon Brown. “Whether you thrive in a bustling urban setting or prefer a quiet residential suburb with a more laid-back vibe, Dallas has something for everyone. We’re continuing to see an influx of out-of-state buyers relocating to Texas, which has made the market more competitive for local homebuyers.”

Opendoor’s Cash-Backed Offers and Home Loans Programs

According to Brown, residents can buy with an edge using the Opendoor-backed offer program. She says that sellers find cash offers more attractive because there is less of a chance of the transaction falling through during the financing stage, but not everyone can make an all-cash offer. With Opendoor, buyers can make an offer as good as cash. 

“Opendoor is helping to level the playing field between those who need financing and those who are fortunate enough not to need it with a very simple process,” says Brown. “Buyers simply get pre-qualified either with Opendoor Home Loans or another mortgage company, which only takes a few minutes. No extra hoops, hurdles, or costs. Then, we’ll review the cash offer to ensure it has the strongest terms and submit it to the seller on their behalf.”

Opendoor recently shared the most popular ZIP codes in Dallas. The company is seeing increased interest in areas surrounding the metroplex, including McKinney, Frisco, and Little Elm where you can get a lot of home for your money. Brown says these areas are new with lots of new construction, modern family parks, new subdivisions, and a diverse housing stock (think condos, multi-family, single-family homes, etc.), which is great for young families or homebuyers looking to upgrade.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the hottest homes on the market right now. Run, don’t walk, to these homes, because if you know anything about the DFW market, you know they’ll be gone in the matter of a Texas two-step.
