How to price a domain name effectively

by secretsocietymc / July 10, 2013 12:47 AM PDT

I am inquiring info from someone who is experienced in selling domain names. I have completed the appraisals for some of my domain names. Now that I have the appraisals... I am trying to determine the correct pricing for each. So for example... hypothetically speaking... If a domain name is appraising for $10,000.00 Should I be selling at that price? I do understand that they will be earning revenue as well... So I'm thinking I should be selling at a higher rate than the appraisal. Any help anyone can provide would be helpful.

Thank you in advance. Happy

So is it effectively or correct?

In the sale of any product the effective price is one where you see the product move and it generates a profit. However if you have a single item then the effective price is a little different. You can price it a little higher and then cut a deal later.

If the domain is not generating revenue today then it's unlikely to be factored into the price. This could upset those folk that sell domain names.

So does that mean I should be offering the price at the appraisal? and then negotiate from there?

The seller retains that right.

And it's their choice to part with it or not.
