Life for sale is sold

Going once, twice…SOLD!!!


The eBay auction of a disenfranchised Aussie’s life for sale has finally come to a conclusion. The eBay auction ended successfully, but yielded almost $96,000 less than the price hoped for.

As we wrote about earlier, Ian Usher of Perth, Australia decided to auction off his “life” (including his furnished home, his friends and a try-out for his job) after his most recent relationship broke up.  Unfortunately, the eBay auction site did not work properly initially, and Usher received numerous bogus bids from non-registered bidders, reaching up to A$2.2 million. He discovered that many of the bidders were underage and not authorized to bid at all.

After the auction debacle was sorted out, the winning registered bidder agreed to pay Usher A$399,300 ($380,286) for all of his earthly goods, including a motorcycle and jet ski. The buyer is Australian.

Usher has a Web site where he provided regular updated on his auction at www.alife4sale.com, and now plans to travel in search of his new life.  We wish him the best.
