I’m a huge fan of Project7Ten — the first traditionally-built, LEED Platinum home in California (read: non-prefab). But the developers are going after another first, that is, to be the first LEED Platinum home sold on Ebay. That’s right. News that Project7Ten is being sold through AuctionWire is a little shocking to me, too. Why. sell. your. home. via. auction. on. Ebay? Can someone tell me the rationale for an auction-based sale? I mean, I know the market is a little choppy right now, but people with money always have money. Is it really that tough to find a purchaser for one of the greenest homes in CA?
Or stated differently, I guess one can look at this a couple different ways: (1) the seller wants to find a quick purchaser and is trying to cast a wide net for potential candidates, or (2) the house isn’t selling and ebay was the next best idea to try to move it. Certainly, the celebrity state of California has enough candidates for a super stylish, green home, right?
