What’s really behind the Opendoor?

Find out Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018, at 11:00 a.m. PT in an exclusive live interview with Opendoor CEO and co-founder Eric Wu, moderated by Andrew Flachner, co-founder and CEO of RealScout, and broadcast only on the Inman News Facebook page.

Wu’s company Opendoor, launched in Phoenix in December 2014, leads the pack of a new breed of real estate companies — high-tech investors dubbed “iBuyers” sparking the most revolutionary change in how homes are sold since the advent of the MLS.

Send us your questions! #AskOpendoor

Valued at more than $1 billion, well-funded Opendoor leverages technology to make quick offers on homes, close in days and then resell them, catering to homesellers who place a premium on convenience, certainty and speed. Wu’s business, which has now expanded to Dallas-Fort Worth; Las Vegas; Raleigh, North Carolina; and Atlanta, is making big and small changes to the home transaction process as much of the industry watches with interest.

On Wednesday Wu will answer the industry’s questions live from Opendoor’s headquarters in San Francisco. Submit your questions prior to the event on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn with the hashtag #AskOpendoor. You can also send them to Inman’s editorial team via press@inman.com, or leave your questions on this page in the comments.
