While real estate activity generally starts to slow down as we head into the fall and winter months, that doesn't mean prospective buyers need to hang tight until the New Year. Right now can actually be a great time to buy, especially if you're not constrained by school holiday schedules. Less competition is especially beneficial in a hot housing market like Dallas-Fort Worth's, where available inventory continues to remain low. Historically low mortgage rates don't hurt, either.
If you're looking (or need) to make a move before the holiday entertaining season gets into full swing, Opendoor is the perfect solution. The company has been transforming how people buy homes across DFW for years by eliminating the hassle and inconvenience that can come with house hunting.
Simply download the mobile app to browse the hundreds of for-sale homes Opendoor currently has on the market. If you see one you like, head over to the home and use the Opendoor app as a front-door key anytime between 6 am and 9 pm, seven days a week, for a stress-free self-tour. You don't need an appointment, and you can visit as many times as you like.
Check out Opendoor’s full inventory of homes, and take a look at these five that you can buy and close on before Thanksgiving.
