iBuyer Inaccurately Listed House Purchased – Legal Options?

tldr; Bought a home from OpenDoor that was supposed to be on city sewer. Property actually has a septic tank. Do I have any legal/compensation options?

I purchased a home earlier this year from an iBuyer (OpenDoor) under the assumption that the home had city water and city sewer access. All of the disclosures and MLS sheets from OpenDoor indicated that the home had such.

However, after I moved in and had my plumber start working on repairs, I learned that the home was connected to a septic tank. I contacted the town to see if getting on city sewer was an option, only to find out that this road had never, and will never, have a septic line. The water bill is also very clear that it is only for water and not sewer.

The person who sold the home to OpenDoor is actually my neighbor, and they confirmed that their disclosure to OpenDoor did indicate that it had a septic tank.

Being connected to city sewer played a large part in my decision to go with the house (in this town it’s a 50/50 whether they might have that). I had planned on adding a second bath at some point, but now that could potentially require upgrading the septic tank (not to mention I have no idea how old the septic tank is).

My real estate agent friends keep telling me I should go after OpenDoor for inaccurately listing the property and not properly disclosing information. Is that true? Could I potentially get some type of monetary compensation from them?
