Here are the latest results for the top 20 most searched keywords on eBay.
1 Nintendo ds - When ever i see Nintendo ds or games at a garage sale i know it’s an easy sell but i don’t really look for them that much, they are so popular that they usually get picked up right away.
2 coupons - This was a suprise to me that it’s the number 2 searched term on eBay right now but i guess with the economy the way it is people are looking to save that extra buck by purchasing large lots of coupons.
3 BMW - Car parts are a entire industry that one can get into on eBay, i will write about it later, I have some friends who only sell car parts on eBay, they either get them from china (aftermarket car parts) or purchase huge lots of overstock parts. its a great way to make money if you have $10,000 to start with.
4 ipod - Another gimme at a garage sale if you can find them, they sell very quickly, apply products are as liquid-able as gold in my opinion.
5 blackberry torch - Cell phones are a great way to make some extra cash as garage sales. Again this is an entire industry that people get into. Whether you buy them for resale to consumers, buy broken phones to restore or purchase large quantities to sell to china this is a great money maker.
6 shoes - Very tough, for me anyways, to make money with shoes unless they are high end brand new or Jordan’s. There are so many shoes out there i have no idea what sells and what doesn’t, i don’t waste my time with shoes.
