The web­site sell­ing tool eBay works — even if the item is large.

The first cam­paign by a ma­jor de­vel­oper in Canada al­low­ing peo­ple to bid on a lux­ury con­do­minium unit in a re­sort de­vel­op­ment was a suc­cess. The re­cent eBay auc­tion for three units in Legacy on Mara Lake by Cal­gary-based de­vel­oper Sable Re­sorts re­sulted in one suite sold and the other two in “fi­nal ne­go­ti­a­tions,” says Sable.

The suite that sold “was ap­praised ear­lier this year at $510,000 and the owner saved at least 15 per cent,” says Lind­say Marett, speak­ing on be­half of the de­vel­oper.

“Bids for each of the three suites were over $255,000 — and the num­ber of bids com­bined for the three suites to­talled more than 200.”

Sable still has its re­main­ing units for sale in a “best of­fer sell­off,” and buy­ers can “still get im­pres­sive deals,” says Marett.
