Inspecting Item Prices
     - One of the basic things that you should be doing. Try to add up the prices of all the items
inside the unit. This way, you will have an idea on how much the unit worth.
     - Ignore items with less than $50 price range.
     - Just get the average price and add them up to the other items.
     - Example: Item X = $700 ~ $1250. For this item, price it at $900 or $1000.
     - Example: Item Y = $??? ~ $250. For this item, price it at $100.

Wanted Treasures

Dollar ($) Sign Hunt

give you XP and Cash. Approximately 4 to 5 dollar signs per unit.
