The starting bid of a Toronto home sale, eBay style
In the neighborhood, a real estate brokerage firm in Vaughan is looking for a new way to sell houses, which the company says will make the process more transparent to buyers and still bring the highest to sellers
The company is adopting sales-by-
Auction \"technology as a choice of customers.
When the seller lists the house, it will appear on the MLS for about six to seven days and count down on the brokerage\'s website to let people know when the auction will start.
During this period, potential buyers can look at the staged house and get the details of the house inspection.
The auction will then be broadcast live online, usually ending in three or four days, and the location of the auction will be the highest place to bid.
The seller has also set a \"reserved\" price to ensure a minimum price is reached.
