    How can I figure out the worth of my domain names?

    I have sold 2 domains recently but did I get enough for them?
    How do you know what to price your domains at?

    I sold forku.com for $250.00 USD
    I sold firetruckparties.com for $25.00 USD

    I want to sell radioreborn.com and a few others but I think I may be underpricing.

    Any suggestions?

    It's what the market will bear, nj
    Myself I wouldn't have paid $0.50 for forku.com but obviously somebody saw value in it.

    haha, yeah I guess to each his own. I registered forku and forkuniversity for a very ill thought out food website. I eventually went with themaincourse.net but have been way too busy to get any content up.

    I really think I should have asked for more for firetruckparties.com though.

    RadioReborn.com I may actually get around to using.

    One choice: You could pay for an appraisal or try a free site. Those are just two services. There are plenty more.

    Actually, my suggestion is to pay a high-octane web professional ( ::cough:: ::cough:: ) to build a professional website for this site then just sell the entire "business".

    You may only get 250-500 for the domain. But you can sell the business for 25k-50k relatively easily if you invest a few months to build up the website and can show revenue pipelines.

    I've done this a few times. Works very well.
