Are Real Estate Companies Like Opendoor Hurting The Housing Market Or Helping?
By Alex

        I have been a Dallas Real Estate Agent for 3 years now.  In that time I have seen a lot.  Nothing is ever constant and in the blink of an eye the market can change.  One thing that stays the same is that I try to get as many listings as possible.  "More Listings" is the golden rule taught to all Real Estate Agents while they are in school.  Trying to get a listing is always challenging and is always my top priority.  Everyday I try to get a listing appointment with a home owner.  Thus, increasing my chances of becoming one of the best real estate agents in Dallas.  

        Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about companies like Opendoor who are trying to eliminate the need for a realtor when selling your home.  Instead they offer flat fees to homeowners and an "open house" type of policy to your home during the entire duration of the listing.  Sound great?!  Right!  Well the truth of it is that is looks very attractive.  It cuts out the need for a Realtor meaning that you have a sales team in charge of your home.  Consumers have to talk to somone in a sales q that is has your home information in a file.  They have never even been to the home before.  They are an hourly paid employee.  Also, they are not available to show the home to prospective buyers.  Instead they have an "opendoor" policy where they put a dead bolt on the home with a combo code...awesome.  So that means that anyone and I mean anyone can walk through your home.  It takes out the need once again for someone to be with a trusted and licensed Dallas Realtor when walking through your home.  It puts you and your family at risk.  The list goes on really about how horrible this company is.  

        Opendoor has doing a huge marketing campaign to try and sucker as many homeowners into using them.  It has created more competition for licensed Realtors when they are at a listing appointment and the seller is trying to decide between using you or a flat fee brokerage like Opendoor.  Really it is a no brainer.  with a Realtor you get professional service with photos, one on one interactions, daily updates, peace of mind during showings, customized marketing, and so much more.  Don't be fooled by and have an opendoor policy to your home.  Those are your valuables and your family that you are putting at risk.  You need a Realtor that will stand with you throughout the entire process.  Call me for all your buying and selling needs.
