Selling Real Estate on eBay

eBay Real Estate isn't quite an auction. Because of the wide variety of laws governing the sale of real estate, eBay auctions of real property aren't legally binding offers to buy and sell. When a real estate auction ends, neither party is obligated (as they are in other eBay auctions) to complete the transaction. The buyer and seller must get together to consummate the deal.

Nonetheless, eBay Real Estate sales are popular, and the gross sales are growing by leaps and bounds. You don't have to be a professional real estate agent to use this category, although that kind of pro experience may help when it comes to closing the deal. If you know land and your local real estate laws, eBay gives you the perfect venue to subdivide those 160 acres in Wyoming that Uncle Regis left you in his will.

For less than the cost of a newspaper ad, you can sell your home, condo, land, or even timeshare on eBay Real Estate in the auction format.

You can also choose to list your property in an ad format, accepting not bids but inquiries from prospective buyers from around the world. On the Create Your Listing form, you must specify certain information about your piece of real estate for it to appear in the eBay Real Estate category.
