Open house tours aren't very schedule-friendly for employees and people who have busy schedules and lives. They always happen during working hours and on a few select days, and more often than not, there are dozens of other potential buyers touring the house at the same time as you, annoying you with their comments and mere presence.

Opendoor aims to solve that issue by streamlining the open house process as much as possible. The team operates in Phoenix and Dallas, pre-inspects every house it lists, makes sure it's repaired, and includes an extended 2-year warranty and 30-day satisfaction guarantee. Listings include all the details of the house so you can filter by criteria to weed out the ones you don't care about, the location to browse on a map and see open houses near you, and plenty of photos to view the house from your phone.

If you decide to check a house in person, the app acts as your key to unlock it for a private visit that you can schedule every day of the week between 6am and 9pm. It's that convenience that makes Opendoor a very interesting concept and company. At the very least, you could go for a visit early in the morning or late at night, when your time permits, and not be greeted by a locked door and no way to get in.

The Android app is now available for free on the Play Store so you can download it and give it a try if you live in Phoenix or Dallas.

Opendoor Mobile App Gives Phoenix Home Shoppers On-demand Access to Hundreds of Homes for Sale
New real estate app enables buyers to find, browse, and instantly gain entry to nearby homes for sale

October 20, 2016 01:10 PM Eastern Daylight Time
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Opendoor, the fastest growing real estate company in Phoenix, has launched an app for iPhone and Android that gives home buyers instant access to hundreds of homes for sale in the Phoenix area. With a few taps, buyers can find homes that match their criteria, view home details, and instantly take the next step of visiting homes on their schedule.

Opendoor recognizes how valuable it is for buyers to visit a home at their convenience and has seen over 60% of Opendoor home visits occurring outside of traditional open house hours. Buyers see home visits as integral to making a confident and informed decision, but busy schedules and weekend activities make it a key pain point in the process. With the launch of the app, home buyers can visit every Opendoor home 6AM–9PM any day of the week.

Danny Gallegos, who experienced the pain of visiting homes first-hand, decided to turn to Opendoor to purchase a home in downtown Phoenix this summer. “Opendoor gave me the huge advantage of seeing homes on my time. I travel for work, and when I get home I have a list of things to do. I felt I was missing out on great homes and delaying an already long process. With Opendoor, I could go see homes as late as 9pm. Now, I honestly can’t imagine the home buying process being any other way.”

“With the app launch today, we’re putting the home buyer just a few taps away from hundreds of all-day open houses,” says Opendoor’s Head of Product, Evan Moore. “Homebuyers value convenience and flexibility, so Opendoor listings have seen over 3X the number of visits from buyers than the average home listing. This launch is bringing us one step closer to achieving our mission of simplifying the home buying journey for everyone.”

Opendoor App Features:

  • Gain entry to homes straight from your app, every day of the week between 6AM–9PM
  • Browse Opendoor homes for sale with a map or list view
  • Filter homes by bed, bath, and/or price to see only those that match your criteria
  • See high-res photos and at-a-glance property details for every home
  • Easily connect with Opendoor experts for a seamless purchase process

The Opendoor Real Estate app is available to download today on the Apple App Store and Google Play store. Opendoor launched in Phoenix in December of 2014, and since then has become the fastest growing real estate company in the Phoenix area, selling over $300M worth of homes.
