In: Information

18 Apr 2009

If you have a house or other type of real estate to sell, you can list it for auction on the eBay Real Estate site ( Or if you don’t quite trust the auction format for something this expensive, you can use eBay to create a traditional real estate listing, like the kind a realtor might make in your local paper. The difference is that an eBay real estate listing is browsable by all of eBay’s 125 million users a pretty big audience when you have a house to sell.

When you click the Sell link at the top of the eBay Real Estate page, you’re offered a choice of three selling formats. You can choose to sell your property at a traditional auction, sell at a fixed price, or to create a traditional real estate listing. From there, you enter the specifics of your propertynumber of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of property, square footage, lot size, year built, and so on. You can also choose to run a 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, 10-, or 30-day auction, or a 30- or 90-day non-auction listing.

eBay Real Estate charges both listing and final value fees. The charge for a 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, or 10-day auction listing is $100; a 30-day auction listing costs $150. If you prefer to create a non-auction listing, you’ll pay $150 for a 30-day listing, or $300 for a 90-day listing. (Fees for timeshares and land are slightly lower.) The final value fee for timeshares and land is $35; there is no final value fee on residential and commercial real estate.
