    Lets say I have a bunch of domains I want to sell.


    Is checking all these "website value" calculators a good start to get a base value to ask for that domain?


    thanks

    Short answer, no. Every site monetizes differently and these calculators don't take that into account. They say a site is worth 5 years of net revenue. So if the site owner is making $1k a year, the site is worth $5k.

    You know if you go to domaining forums they should give you a good idea of what your domain will sell for in the reseller's market.

    These sites are generally good for a laugh and a quick backlink, other than that not really any hard grounds
