I was looking on ebay and i had a ? why in the world are they selling land for like $1k and acre and saying it will be worth way more in the future… if that is true why arent they holding on to the properties for there on profit… btw the properties are in texas in the middle of nowhere…
most of the stuff on eBay is real crap. alot of it is acquire by buying at tax sales a lot of stuff that no one else will buy becuase it has nearly no value.
also I have looked closely at several properties on eBay and had more than once sellers make factually incorrect statements about the status of the title and how they obtained the property, how long they owned, etc.
use extreme caution on eBay properties. there are much better ways to find deals and not have to deal with scammers
