    Alright guys.. this one has been giving me some problems because I really dont want to undersell myself or my inventory lol. How do you determine the price of a domain? Obviously there are many different things that play into that consideration (age,length etc) but do you mostly just list and hope for the best?

    For example, I recently acquired a domain (for example lets day sanjosebeautysalon.com) that relates to one of the top 10 biggest US cities and its fairly brandable too. All other domains that are exactly the same (besides the name of the city) are owned by a big domain brokerage that usually only deals with 5+ figure domains. They have listed these domains at $15,000 - $17,000 each and the domain that I own is one of the oldest at 13 years. Can I assume that I should list it at the same value?

    Any input would be appreciated :)

    Google "domain value checker" and try to get a value for your domain through the search results.

    ^^^I hope this is supposed to be random trolling and not real advice.^^^

    Anyways, it seems like this is the type of domain you would have to do your own end-user contacting for, Find some lets say it is that domain, Beauty Salons in San Jose and contact them to ask if they are interested in the domain, that would probably get you the best value for this type of domain, ( i would say for this name ask for $500-$3000, where exactly to settle at is up to you.

    You may not be able to find any Beauty Salon interested in the area in that domain, if thats the case i would personally suggest moving on. And give the domain away or selling it in an auction somewhere (Flippa,Goddady) This will usually net you low to mid xx, so $10-$50.

    You can also just put it on Afternic with make offer or Buy it now and hope for the best.

    If a huge domain holder have portfolio of 50,000 domains and is sitting on it till wealthy end user purchase one or two, it doesn't matter you can too.
    You can list your handreg domain (you've bought it for 10$) for 15,000$ but there's a reason why it wasn't already registered.

    Most local businesses doesn't need 15,000$ domain. No matter how big the city is. You don't go across NY to find grocery store with cheaper bread.

    And don't forget. You're not MIKE MANN, you are not able to sell anything to right buyer.
