Found and bought items always start with a full durability, but sometimes I want to sell and item I have already used for a while and is not fully repaired.

For maximizing money gained, should I repair the item first, sell it without repairing, or does it yield the same total gold in both cases?

A side note, to sell them on AH they have to be fully repaired. – Blem May 18 '12 at 10:35
Why don't you try instead of asking? – Mert May 18 '12 at 10:55
Yeah, do some science! – MBraedley May 18 '12 at 10:57
Just log into the game and figure it out yourself. – Michael Capobianco May 18 '12 at 14:34

Repairing an item gets you no extra gold.

I just tested this myself. Boots that sold for 53 gold and had only 80% durability were then repaired for 4 gold. They were still selling for 53 gold after the repairing.
