“Opendoor has been supporting Arizonans with the confidence and control to make life-changing moves since launching in Phoenix in 2014. Since our first customer eight years ago, we have become part of neighborhoods across the state, serving tens of thousands of homebuyers and sellers and partnering with contractors and small businesses,” Chief Customer Officer Megan Meyer Toolson said in the release.
According to the company's website, Opendoor customers can sell their homes and "skip the hard parts" through its online format. The digital real estate platform also allows buyers to purchase homes through the company in addition to selling them. The selling process involves getting a preliminary offer from Opendoor and submitting a video tour of the home to the company, according to the website. According to the release, this model has served over 37,000 Arizona buyers and sellers since the business began operations.
“We appreciate Opendoor’s investment in our city and welcome them to our community," Tempe Mayor Corey Woods said in the release.
