Dallas-Fort Worth continues to be a hot market, but there are signs it's cooling down a bit. Opendoor's Dallas-Fort Worth general manager, Sharon Brown, says, "Relative to the last few months, the market is cooler. But relative to last year, the year before, and the years prior, it’s still hot. The local market is cooling because more inventory is coming on the market and the volume of homes sold has decreased over the last three months. Sales prices are also declining a tad, which makes it a great time to buy."
You heard her: a great time to buy. Opendoor is a leading residential real estate platform that makes it simpler and faster to buy a home. It empowers buyers to find, tour, finance, purchase, and close on their dream home — all from their phone.
To help DFW homebuyers have a competitive edge in today's market, Opendoor has a cash-backed offers program that makes it possible for everyone to reap the benefits of being an all-cash buyer. According to a recent study by the company, 72 percent of home sellers say they would prefer cash offers by a company on behalf of an individual, compared to a traditional offer.
Opendoor enables buyers to present the certainty of an all-cash offer to a seller. The process is easy: buyers need to share a pre-qualification letter from their lender, or they can get pre-qualified with Opendoor Home Loans, which only takes a few minutes. Then Opendoor will review the offer and submit it to the seller.
