Can I list a property on your site without a price? I want people to bid on it.

That depends on how you advertise it.  Properties that are not on auction are limited to the thousands on the MLS.  When you have an auction coming into town and it is on the radio, tv, and billboards, there are more eyes on that property.  In many cases, auctions sell well over asking price b/c of the extra advertising.  It happens much more than you know and is catching on throughout the U.S.

I see lots of auction listings posted on this site, but I believe they all are syndicated from other sites.  I know of no way to post an auction listing directly on Zillow.  Besides, most serious buyers seem to ignore the auction listings on the site and try to filter them out.

The auction listings on the site tend to have a minimum bid amount listed.  Usually way below what most people would expect to pay.  And there are many agents that indicate that in order to bid at the non-public auctions, you pay an admission fee and a percent fee, and the seller pays a higher auction commission.  In most cases, I do not believe auctions bring in more money than pricing right to begin with, and pricing to encourage multiple offers.

You can contact www.RealEstateAuctions.com.  They are now expanding throughout the U.S. for in-person and online bidding.  The CEO is brilliant and ethical.

Zillow isn't set up for auctions.  You can put your dream price in Make Me Move, or you can post as a FSBO.

You may also want to contact an agent who can arrange to auction your property.

This is not an auction site and only properties listed for sale at a definite price can be posted.

You can contact a local real estate auctioneer if you wish to auction your home.
