Economies differ and if you're new to the auction house, it can be overwhelming. Lately when I want to sell something, I have to see if anyone else is selling it also and figure out what the average price is so I can put up an item with a reasonable price. If no one has the item up, I have to resort to googling and other tactics.

Is there a tool which just tells you when you're creating auctions what it sells best at or something similar? Any kind of add-on that is easy to use and not cumbersome?

Check out Auctioneer. This fancy add-on has a full array of fancy options to customize your desired profit, current market prices, averages, etc. This helped me a lot over time achieve maximum profit while still producing a sale.

I saw this add-on and it looks overwhelming. Is there a trivial way to see how much an item should be put up for? – imaginative May 20 '12 at 2:22
It can be rather advanced and rather easy at the same time. Once you have it installed, do a scan on the auction house. (takes about 12 minutes) Then you select your % profit in the sell page, and post the sale. That's it. – Zero Stack May 20 '12 at 2:33

For a light-weight addon that does exactly that, check out Auctionator.

You just drag an item to it's sell tab, and it recommends the sell price for you.

+1, I know Auctioneer is more capable and powerful, but I have always loved the relative simplicity and ease-of-use of Auctionator. – Steven Jul 24 '12 at 1:54
