Sure its common. Means no one is finding the item attractive at the starting price. When you search for something click on "completed auctions" and you'll see many items that have been relisted many, many, many, times with no bids. When you list something it defaults to 50 automatic relists, so basically it will relist for a year. Not unlike a gun sitting on a shelf in a gunshop waiting for the right person to come along.
