Freedom Home Buyers has always been committed to our clients because we understand how painstaking and expensive selling a home can be. After hearing that our competitor, Opendoor Labs Inc, owes $62 million to their clients for using “deceptive tactics,” we can’t help but wonder, how does Opendoor actually work?
Freedom Home Buyers knows that not every Jacksonville homeowner has the luxury of going through the traditional sales process. Seeking out the perfect Realtor, making repairs, conducting deep cleaning, leaving for open houses and ultimately finding the right buyer can end up costing more time and money than you have available.
For these reasons, online home selling has increased in popularity throughout the years. We get it – homeowners want convenience.
How Does Opendoor work? By Buying Low and Selling High.
Opendoor knows this all too well. While they claim to make most of their profits from fully disclosed fees, the Federal Trade Commission found that wasn’t exactly the case. By using fake charts and misleading information, many consumers actually lost thousands of dollars by selling their homes to Opendoor (if those transactions even closed at all).
Unfortunately, there are many dishonest competitors in the online home buying industry. At Freedom Home Buyers, we can’t help but wonder, how does OpenDoor work as a successful business for so long by simply “low-balling” their customers?
The FTC alleged that Opendoor would use downward adjustments to the projected market value when giving a price to potential home sellers. They even used charts to show a projected value that a consumer would get through Opendoor versus a traditional realtor. However, the vast majority of people that sold their homes to Opendoor lost thousands of dollars.
Some of Opendoor’s marketing material presented state-of-the-art technology and cutting-edge innovation that “ensured” you always get the best-perceived market value.
“Opendoor promised to revolutionize the online house buying market,” stated Samuel LeVine, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, “but there is nothing innovative about cheating consumers.” Mr. LeVine even went as far as saying, “Opendoor built a business out of old-fashioned deception about how much consumers could earn by selling their homes on the platform.”
In contrast, Freedom Home Buyers takes all the pressure out of selling your house the non-traditional way without a Realtor and we want you to know that there is still a name you can trust in non-traditional home sales. We are well funded, offer fair and honest prices and actually complete transactions that every party is happy with.
If you’re in Jacksonville Florida, or the surrounding areas, and want to find out what your house is really worth in order to sell it fast, call Freedom Home Buyers today for a free consultation. There is absolutely no obligation from you in the future, but know that many homeowners are delighted with our straightforward and pain-free process.
We know that not everyone selling their home online is doing so because they want to. Freedom Home Buyers understands that a lot of people need to sell their homes in days, rather than weeks or months due to other circumstances. The main factor is the condition of their home and the desire to avoid paying high real estate agent commissions.
With so many families struggling, we stopped asking ourselves “How does Opendoor work?” and started wondering how the folks at Opendoor can sleep at night while knowingly cheating their clients.
Freedom Home Buyers Works For You.
There are many reasons you may want to sell your home “as-is” outside of the traditional listing process.
