I’ve been shopping on eBay lately to find deals on maternity wear and baby things. But how can I know if I’m actually getting a good deal?
Before bidding, I check “completed listings” similar to the item I’m seeking. I’ll be able to see how much an item did (or didn’t) sell for, as well as how many bidders are typically interested.
Another way to figure out if you’re getting a good price is to visit Honesty.com. I found this web site in Redbook or Good Housekeeping (or something like that).
The site has some kind of formula to draw upon past and current auctions, and will let you know the bargain price for your item.
This tool will also be useful for prospective sellers, so you can know a ballpark range of what to expect for your item.
