    Wanted to get a poll of the community.

    1. State the price (ok to give a 20% range) and what type of site it was.
    2. Is the site still live and is person you sold it to making money from it now?

    For those who responded, are any of your sites still live?

    This was a great deal for you, I assume.

    What city was at stake? Since you're mentioning euros, I'm guessing it was a city in Europe?

    Flipped my first successful site for around $3k. I was dumb, though - the site had so much potential to go far above what I was earning. I got out early because rankings were dropping. As a complete newb, I didn't think I could recover, but I realize now that it wouldn't have been particularly difficult. There was zero competition.

    Lesson learned!

    I sold eBay for $13 when I was a kid. Good price, I only paid $0.99 for the domain using a Godaddy voucher.
