How an online platform can take the stress out of selling your Boston home

(BPT) – Over the last few years, the real estate market has been something to marvel at. Higher demand for homes, increasing prices and many people having the freedom to work remotely all make the market about as predictable as the weather forecast — no one knows what’s going to happen next. But, if you’re looking to sell in the Boston area, there’s no time like the present. The median sale price for a single-family home in the greater Boston area went up to $789,500 in March of 2022, a 9.4% increase from the previous year.

Because the market is so unpredictable, more sellers are turning to fully digital methods to avoid the inevitable stress that comes with traditional real estate transactions. If you’re looking to have a seamless real estate experience, Opendoor has you covered. By selling to Opendoor, you can manage everything online and get a competitive, all-cash offer.

By selling to Opendoor, you can also:

  • Bypass open houses
  • Choose your closing date
  • Skip the stressful home repairs process
  • Avoid overlapping mortgage payments, processing fees and transfer taxes

You’ll also skip paying commission fees for your listing agent and your potential homebuyer’s agent by selling online. Traditional seller’s fees are about 6% of the sale price. Opendoor’s service fee is no more than 5% of the sale price, which includes the cost of buying, maintaining, marketing and selling the home.

Launching in Boston markets and beyond

Opendoor is available in more than 240 ZIP Codes in the greater Boston area to provide homeowners with a simple and certain way to lock in liquidity. Opendoor will be active in several counties including Plymouth, Worcester, Bristol, Middlesex, Norfolk, Suffolk, and Essex counties. Currently Opendoor is looking to buy homes in the Boston area. Homebuyers can look for Opendoor’s homes for sale in other markets.

“Boston is one of the most densely populated cities in the U.S., making the demand for a seamless real estate experience a must have,” says Steve Balik, Boston General Manager at Opendoor. “We’ll be available not only in the heart of Boston, but in the surrounding suburbs as well, ensuring that no matter where customers are looking to move, we’ll be able to help them have a simple and certain transaction.”
