He is 7. All he talks about is money. How he can earn it, how much he has, wants, can make off selling his stuff. Right now he's looking in his room to see if he has anything to sell. He gets too obsessed and it goes too far. Is this normal 7 year old behavior, or does he maybe have something wrong?
(ps-it's not just that, he gets obsessed with whatever, hard to explain)
Basically I kind of feel like the money is a symptom of a possibly bigger problem? Please help!

What a teaching opportunity. Take it as that. Let him know you are excited that he has taken such an interest and you want to teach him about earning, saving, spending. Encourage him to save with a bank, matching it, helping him find ways to earn it. See some great teaching tools about money http://astore.amazon.com/wwwcjkidzcom3-20?%5Fencoding=UTF8&node=3
