Residential Property On Ebay.co.uk: A New Hpc Indicator?

Recommended Posts

http://listings.ebay.co.uk/aw/plistings/ca...x.html?from=R11

52 listings under the "Home & Garden > Residential Property > UK & Ireland" category of Ebay UK. Most of them look serious, and a few are newbuilds. Could this be a new indicator for the upcoming HPC?

Ebay could be a great way to sell in a hurry - a large potential audience, and the costs are probably very favourable compared to estate agencies.

On 21-May-07 at 07:32:14 BST, seller added the following information:

Due to the wide variety of laws governing the sale of properties in UK and Ireland, eBay property listings are not legally binding offers to buy and sell that property. Instead, they are simply a way for sellers to advertise their property and meet potential buyers. At the close of the auction, the seller should contact the winning bidder to discuss entering into a contract for the real property. However, neither party is obligated to complete the property transaction. This type of transaction is called a Non-binding Auction.

What is a Non-binding auction?

Non-binding auctions of properties do not involve binding commitments by members to buy and sell property. Instead, these "auctions" are simply a way for sellers to advertise their properties within the auction-style environment familiar to eBay's members. At the close of the auction, the seller is expected to contact the high bidder to discuss entering into a contract for the real sale of the property. Neither party is obliged to complete the transaction.

The purchase and sale of property is a complicated matter that is often governed by local and international laws. You are strongly advised to seek the help of a professional estate agent and/or a conveyancing solicitor to help you in the negotiation and sale of any property.

Either the seller has ingested one too many, or would be well advised to put the £510 towards English lessons.

Shame they are just 'toy' auctions. Perhaps this part of Ebay's site will be 'beefed-up' a little when the repossessions start in earnest!
