When considering whether to purchase a property from EBay, potential buyers should understand EBay's posiiton on property sales which is this; unlike its auctions for purses or comic book collectibles, its real estate auctions are not legally binding contracts. When bidding closes, sellers and buyers are expected to contact each other to exchange paperwork and take whatever actions are required by local laws. As its Help section says, "EBay Real Estate is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers and, as a result, has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the properties advertised." BBB is advising consumers who wish to purchase property, especially off the Internet, to at least consult, if not retain, an attorney. Consumers may also wish to file a complaint with the Ohio Department of Real Estate.
