It's no secret that millennials make up a large part of the country's economy, and this includes the real estate market. Despite the headlines that millennials are “killing everything,” including homeownership, they currently account for 36 percent of homebuyers, and that number is continuing to grow.
So what exactly are they looking for? Millennials who are ready to take the homebuying plunge want starter homes at an affordable price point — a median price point of $220,000 to be exact — and appealing amenities. This is where Opendoor comes in. Its streamlined, modern approach to buying and selling houses is appealing to the tech-savvy, fast-moving generation, and the Opendoor app is a low-stress way to navigate the home searching, touring, and buying process. Users can download the app and tour any of these homes from 6 am-9 pm, any day of the week. It doesn't get much more convenient than that.
Opendoor aims to reinvent life’s most important transaction with a new, radically simple way to buy and sell your home.
