Opendoor Launches in Los Angeles, Making It Easier to Buy and Sell Homes


If you’re in the market for a new home—or you’re interested in selling your current home—here’s some good news: Opendoor, an innovative company that simplifies the process of buying and selling homes, is now available in Los Angeles.

Founded in 2014, Opendoor has grown quickly. They currently buy and sell homes in 21 cities across the United States. The company shared an overview of their process and how it makes the traditional real estate transaction smoother, faster, and more convenient for both home buyers and sellers. Customers can even set up their home sale and purchase in one seamless transaction.

Buy the Home of Your Dreams, All Through a Mobile App

Thinking of buying a home? Starting today you can use the Opendoor mobile app to browse, tour, and even buy any for-sale home in the Los Angeles area—from a condo downtown, to a bungalow in Huntington Beach, to a starter home in West Covina.

For homes listed on the MLS, you can schedule a tour on your own timeline through the Opendoor app and a tour assistant will meet you to let you in, allowing you to browse without any pressure. If you want to self-tour any of the dozens of Opendoor-owned and listed homes currently on the market, it’s even easier. You can use their mobile app as a front door key to unlock Opendoor homes between 6am and 9pm, seven days a week. Visit homes on your schedule—no appointment necessary.

Opendoor’s mission is to make it easier for customers to move, but they offer financial incentives as well. Opendoor customers receive up to 1% back when they buy with Opendoor or 1.25% off when they buy and sell a home with Opendoor. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that if you’re not completely happy with your new home for any reason, Opendoor will buy back those that qualify within the first 90 days.

Sell Your Home Fast, Get a Competitive All-Cash Offer In 24 Hours

Moving can be a stressful experience. You have to stage your home, schedule showings, and potentially worry about an offer falling through at the last minute. Opendoor eliminates all of the hassle and pain points because they are buying your home directly.

To determine your eligibility, simply go to and enter your home address. The company currently purchases homes between $200,000 and $800,000 that were built after 1950 in Los Angeles County, Orange County, and parts of Ventura County. Eligible sellers fill out a short questionnaire about their home’s attributes and any upgrades they’ve made. You’ll get an answer fast. Opendoor will give you a free, no-obligation competitive cash offer within 24 hours, which can be a boon for sellers that need to move fast.

“My husband and I needed to move in 30 days after he received a job offer in a different state,” said Deannah Baesel, one of the first homeowners in Los Angeles who sold to Opendoor. “We wanted to sell fast and not be saddled with the uncertainty of holding onto our then current home for an undetermined amount of time. The competitive offer we received from Opendoor made selling to them a no-brainer for us and the convenience and smooth experience they provided throughout the process was icing on the cake.”

When you sell to Opendoor, you’ll also have the flexibility to schedule your move. Once you accept the company’s offer for your home, you can determine your own closing timeline between 14 and 60 days. Plan it around your move-in date, and minimize the possibility of double mortgages and storage costs.
