CORRECTED-Home-selling platform OpenDoor makes lackluster Nasdaq debut

(Corrects company name to OpenDoor Technologies, from OpenDoor Labs, in first paragraph)

Dec 21 (Reuters) - Shares of Opendoor Technologies Inc , the home-selling platform backed by SoftBank Group , slipped in their market debut on Monday after an initial pop.

The company, which completed its merger with venture investor Chamath Palihapitiya’s Social Capital Hedosophia II on Friday, began trading at $31.47, up 6.7% from Social Capital’s last close.

However, shares soon reversed course and fell nearly 11% in a weak broader market.
