Sears launches ServiceLive, eBay for home improvement

ServiceLive.comUsually, it's the contractors who bid on home improvement and remodelling jobs. Retail giant Sears wants to turn that process upside-down with, which just launched in beta.

The model is actually more than eBay. Homeowners in need of improvements can look over a list of approved contractors. They select apprpriate candidates, then post a description of the job they want done and what they're willing to pay for it. The first contractor to accept the deal gets the gig.
