Speaking of teaching every one about sales as part of the new Online school that I announced last night, I would like to share a great sales story with you.
A house sold on eBay for just $1.75!
On Yahoo’s homepage this morning (Photos here) I read that a house in Saginaw Mich. was sold on eBay for this redicoulously cheap price. They said it was abandoned, I say I don’t care, the land only should be worth a lot more.
Joanne Smith was the top bidder and she was bidding on 8 others, when she won this one.
She said she is going to try to sell it. Try! I think she should put it on the market immediately, especially with this huge marketing stunt by Yahoo and the Associated Press.
Yes you can sell houses on eBay as a matter of fact there is a huge Real Estate section on eBay, and a couple of years ago, eBay acquired www.Rent.com for a complete Real Estate portal including rentals.
eBay buying and selling will have a big portion on the Online school that I announced last night,and yes it will still be free for you (the students) so you all know the ins and outs of buying and selling houses, say for $1.75 each 😉
Another huge Real Estate market online is (You knew it) Craig’s List. That’s also included in the completely free but still huge package 😉
My take on the Yahoo homepage featured story is that it might be a marketing stunt by eBay taking advantage of the low economy that we have right now, My opinion: It’s a great marketing stunt and perfect timing for it.
I say congratulations to Joanne and hope she makes good profit from this deal 🙂
Now, I am in a sharing mood, so I will include this out of subject video that I watched this morning as soon as I got up. Vanessa Mae is one of my favorite on my last.fm channel as well.
