Just as a buyer would in a traditional sale, we need to verify the condition of your home and identify any repairs that need to be addressed before closing. A team of estimators—Opendoor employees and authorized independent contractors—will inspect the interior and exterior of your home at your convenience and at no cost to you. Your home doesn’t need to be empty or even tidied up, as long as we can easily access each area of the house.
During the assessment, the team will look for items that are broken, inoperable, or affect the safety, structure, or functionality of the home. Our philosophy is to ask for the repairs we expect the next reasonable buyer of the home to request. Typical items include the roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing, or any of the other major systems and appliances such as the AC unit.
There’s no risk or obligation with the home assessment. If you get your assessment results back and for any reason decide you are not interested in covering the repair costs, you are free to cancel the contract and walk away without any penalty, costs, or obligation.
