Reselling unwanted items on eBay is a simple and easy way to find a home for things you no longer need. But it can also be hard to determine ahead of time if what you’re listing is going to sell. One way to lessen the risk is to look at eBay's “What’s Hot” list of items for sale. The online auction site lists what items are “Super Hot,” “Very Hot” and “Hot” in terms of averages in what sells. The "Hotter" the items you list, the better your chances of making some money.
