Ebay has over 4,300 real estate listings on their auction website every month. With over 147 million viewers in the US and internationally, this can offer the greatest amount of exposure for your real estate listing. You can conduct a virtual open house all day every day. If you set up your listing as an auction, having an end date can create a great sense of anticipation and urgency. Most items sold on eBay require an insertion fee and a percentage of the final sale. But for real estate it's just a flat insertion fee depending on whether you wish to list your property for 30 or 90 days.
