I am selling a LG Voyager on eBay’s instant sale… This phone is in perfect condition but the phone won’t turn on… I think it might be the battery but i would be wrong… it could be the charger plug in spot for all i know.. i dont know though.. what do i say?

Thank you for your interest in our Instant Sale program.
Since this phone does not turn on, it is not considered a functional phone. Therefore, when creating your order, you must answer the first question, ‘No’.
If you are trading in your charger with the phone, that may affect the value of the offer, so keep that in mind; however, any added accessories such as covers, cases etc, will not add to the offer.
As for the condition of the item, since we would consider this particular item a broken item (because it does not turn on and it cannot be tested by our evaluators for its functionality), you must choose the ‘Poor’ category.
Then, calculate your offer! From there, you will enter your information and receive your pre-paid FedEx shipping label to ship your item to us. Upon receipt of the item at our facility, it will be evaluated by our Instant Sale team and you will receive e-mails along the entire process.
Should there be any variance in the evaluation, you will get an e-mail with a counter offer, and an option to accept or decline that offer. If you decline, we can send your item back to you, free of charge.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-351-6864. We are happy to help!

Selling Real Estate on eBay

May 3rd, 2012 2 comments

Selling real estate over the internet may sound like an awkward idea. However, the exposure the real estate receives over such a widespread media like the internet is every realtors dream.

Can eBay be used to market real estate? The answer is a resounding yes!

eBay provides functionality that is clearly adaptable to the needs of most realtors. It provides a widespread medium of advertisement for the real estate. It is also a relatively inexpensive method of advertising.

One of the best things about selling real estate on eBay is that it “markets” to many areas around the world, not just a local area. Advertising on eBay makes the property available to more than 100 million potential buyers, including those from other countries. Visitors can browse through the property details 24 hours a day, 7 days a week all without the realtor having to explain the details about the property to every single prospect wanting information.

Advertising on eBay

When one has a house or other real estate to sell, he or she may list it for auction on the eBay site. There are many different ways to present the property for sale on eBay. If the realtor seeks to sell the estate at a fixed price instead of having the property go through an auction, he may request eBay to display a real estate listing in a format much like a local paper.

eBays page has three selling formats. These are the auction, fixed price selling, and the traditional real estate listing.

For each of these selling formats, the “user” furnishes additional information regarding his or her property. Details may include lot size, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of property, year built, and other information. The auction listing period must also be specified, where the choices range from 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, 10-, or 30-days, or a 30- or 90-day non-auction listing.

The eBay website charges two types of fees for listing a property. There is a simple fee for listing the property and also a fee is based on the final amount of the property sale. The charge for a 1-, 3-, 5-, 7-, or 10-day auction listing is typically around $100. A 30-day auction listings cost about $150. A non-auction listing costs $150 for 30-day listing, and about $300 for a 90-day listing.

Fees for Timeshare property and land are usually slightly lower. The final fee amount for Timeshares and land is generally about $35.

Selling on eBay is growing in popularity as the internet stretches it’s outreach to more countries. Although nothing beats direct and personal inspection of property, the convenience of having eBay connect seller and potential buyer is definitely appreciated.
