About OpenDoor

OpenDoor develops and operates collaborative living (“coliving”) spaces. Our homes bring people together to connect, share, and build meaningful relationships with one another. Our mission is to empower more  people to live with a greater sense of connection and purpose. While our business model is in real estate, the core of our offering is around people and community.

Our Coliving Model

“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”  
 — Jim Rohn


Our coliving homes are shared houses or apartments where members rent private rooms, while coming together to share meals, common spaces, socialize, and more. We provide a myriad of services to make the resident experience both easier and better; from beautifully furnished common areas and business-class wifi to fun community events and programs. Residents gain access to a desirable lifestyle and valuable shared amenities at an affordable cost of living.
