We are officially halfway through Q4, which means it’s time to introduce the first in a trilogy of updates on Opendoor’s performance for the last stretch of this crazy year.
This report will cover Opendoor’s October performance, and in mid-December we will share a November update. As usual, on the last week of the quarter we will release our estimates, perhaps even in time for Christmas Day…
After an abysmal Q3 and a resulting plunge in stock price, everyone seems to be wondering when/if Opendoor can dig themselves out of this inventory hole. Perhaps even more critically, with Zillow and Redfin gone and Opendoor posting historical losses in 2H 2022, is the iBuying model fundamentally broken?

Let’s get to it.
