In this weekly feature, which will be posted every Thursday, I will talk about a current listing of mine. I’ll explain why it’s a good pick-up and why it might still be for sale on eBay in an attempt to help other people understand the process of selling on eBay and the items I pick up. Please comment and let me know what you think!

Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone Levitating Challenge

Harry Potter items are one of those ‘always collectible’ types of products. This is a copy of Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone Levitating Challenge. A player sets up an obstacle course and then attempts to get the ball through it, which is levitating in the air thanks to blowing air. The player controls how much air is blowing at any time, so the objective is to raise and lower it accurately, without dropping it altogether or running into an obstacle.

This item is not overly popular, but at the same time, there aren’t a whole lot of them for sale on eBay. The problem with selling this is that, even though Harry Potter items are still very collectible, this item is not one that is in great demand. Not many were bought and sold at the time this item was released, mainly because the gimmick doesn’t appeal to many people, especially collectors. New, unopened ones come up on eBay periodically and the price point is low, no matter if it’s new or opened.

This copy of the game is in good condition. The game has been tested and works well. It is complete, including the original instructions. The box has some tape damage, shelf wear and creasing. There was a battery acid leak but it doesn’t affect the ability of the game to function and has been cleaned up thoroughly, although I disclose this on the listing. Everything else in the game is in fantastic condition.

The reason this copy of the game has not sold yet is likely for two reasons. First, demand is very low on this item. Second, with demand being so low, people are more likely to buy a copy that hasn’t had a battery acid leak or has a box in better condition. I may have to lower my price point even more than it already is to actually sell it. Right now, I have it listed for $10.99 plus shipping. It’s difficult to lower it any more, because I did pay a pretty penny for this item. Electronic games are always a risk unless you are going to open the battery section on site, because leaks happen and it can definitely lower the value of an item.

If I do manage to sell it for $10.99 plus shipping, I’d be looking at about $5 profit on the item, because of what I paid for the item and fees I’ll be paying on the cost of shipping it.
