Opendoor, a San Francisco-based startup launched three years ago to buy and sell homes online, says that it a $1.3 billion annual purchase rate.

Bottom line: "It really shows that this new behavior of selling your home online is more mainstream than it seemed," Opendoor CEO Eric Wu tells Axios. The company's model, in which it purchases and then resells the homes itself, has faced skepticism from the get-go.

Addition: The company also disclosed the homebuilder Lennar participated in its $210 million funding round last year, with Lennar COO Jon Jaffee joining Opendoor's board of directors.

More: Opendoor is officially adding Atlanta as its fourth market (along with Phoenix, Dallas-Forth Worth, and Las Vegas), and says it will expand to Orlando and Raleigh, N.C. later this month.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that the $110 million was a monthly sell figure.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) has dialed up his spicy slams of President Trump, including this swipe at yesterday's signing ceremony: "The pen-and-phone theory of executive lawmaking is unconstitutional slop."

Why it matters: Trump increasingly looks — to business and to fellow Republicans — like a loser in November. So they're more likely to create distance to save their own skins. Sasse also won his May primary, further freeing him.

Pelosi: "States don't have the money" for Trump's unemployment order

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed on "Fox News Sunday" that states don't have the funds to comply with the executive order President Trump signed on Friday, which requires them to cover 25% of an additional $400 in weekly unemployment benefits.

Why it matters: Many state and local governments have had their budgets devastated by the economic impacts of the coronavirus, which have caused expenses to soar and revenues to plunge.

Kudlow says he regrets claiming Trump couldn't use executive order for unemployment

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that he regrets suggesting this week that unemployment benefits can only be extended by Congress.

Why it matters: President Trump's decision to bypass Congress to sign four executive actions, including one that provides $400 per week in extra unemployment benefits, has prompted outcry from Democrats and even some Republicans who believe he is overstepping his constitutional authority.
