Opendoor is an iBuyer, which means it will buy online. The company went public in December following a merger with a specialized stock purchase company and operates in 39 markets. The timing was right, with vaccinations and rediscovery approaching. As Opendoor CFO Carrie Wheeler said on Barron’s At last week’s Investing in Tech conference, the housing market, with low interest rates, pent-up demand and an influx of millennial homebuyers, is “the hottest real estate market that any of us have probably ever seen. “
However, Opendoor stock is struggling, according to FactSet, perhaps because it is not yet profitable. The $ 16.60 stock fell more than 5% over the year. But Wall Street is clearly intrigued. Of the eight analysts covering Opendoor, five refer to the stock as Buy and three as Hold.
Wheeler argued that Opendur was independent of the housing cycle. “Our product really resonates because while consumers are eager to sell their home … they desperately need the convenience and confidence that our product provides,” she said. “It’s cycle and market agnostic.” The real market trend is “going from offline to online”. She added that Opendour’s value proposition should only increase in a softer market.
