A: I say use Ebay to find a buyer, but then handle all else directly with the potential buyer *outside* of Ebay. In other words, don't use Ebay to consummate any sale or transfer of funds.

As you're already thinking, real estate transfers are different from selling widgets online. Find a buyer first, then either have him/her go through a title company to effectuate the transfer and all paperwork, or you could hire a local Pike Co. real estate attorney to handle everything as well.

Ironically, however, I have a client in Pike Co. who might be interested to learn more about your land for sale. Kindly contact me offsite with some further detail about your property.

Best of luck to you.
