I had an interesting thought the other day. Does anyone use eBay to sell their properties? So I checked to see if there were any BC listings. Currently, there are 3, except 1 is for a time share in Whistler. So actually, there are only two. The marketing genius that posted the first listing has advertised it as an anti-earthquake building on Georgia Street with a nice view of town and North Vancouver. The ad does not show any pictures. Not a chance this will sell.
The second property is much more interesting. It is for a custom built rancher on a half acre, close to the ocean, located somewhere on Vancouver Island. The property comes with a 26 foot Bayline boat, a truck and 2 ATVs. There are a hanfdul of really nice pictures. An realtor would consider this property to be a very marketable listing.
Unlike other auctions, a real estate listing lasts for 90 days. Anyone familiar with eBay will know that sellers are able to set a minimum price. If that reserve price is not met, then the seller is not obligated to complete the transaction. I am curious why someone would choose to use eBay to sell their home. I will continue to watch this with great interest. The auction is scheduled to last for another 80 days.
