    I've sold several websites before, on Flippa and various webmaster forums.

    I've never done black hat, but I can tell you it will turn people off. Most website buyers these days are very savvy about SEO. So, they'll do research on your site and check your stats and traffic data.

    I got offered a good price for one of my sites, but I would not sell it due to it being a serious blackhat site (churn and burn).
