    I'm selling FinestCarpet.com on eGay.. I got an email some hours ago:

    How much should I ask for it? Should I ask him how much they're ready to offer or just shoot him a price?

    Thanks for your replies!

    If you're selling your domain on ebay doesn't it already HAVE a price? Why is this guy asking you for one?

    Low $xxx to mid $xxx. I use to buy and sell domains and considering the length and keyword searches for that niche it's not worth very much.
    If you want a second opinion, there are domain reseller forums that will help you out.

    Also, you have no backlinks to that domain either. I would take the time to build back links before I sold it. Just make sure your back links are relevant to the domain name. You could more than triple it's worth.

    Like around $150? More, less?

    I just need something to orient myself since I only started with this and already got confused by an email like this.. I don't know how much I can push the price..

    Newbie :D

    Edit: I read your reply about backlinks only now.. The trick is the auction is ending in few days and I don't have the time (and knowledge) to build relevant links this quickly..

    Thanks for your reply!

    I would start at $400 which is in the high range and let the potential buyer negotiate.
    But not take lest than $175 for it.

    You could also take the next 2 weeks building links by posting in relevant forums, blogs and where evr else you can think of. There are also some BH ways to build back links. Just do a search. Trust me, you will thank me when you domain goes from low $xxx to mid $xxxx

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    I would not do that, let the auction end.

    someone else here just mentioned they sold domains, and then got a chargeback, at least if going through ebay you have a little more of a chance to not get ripped off. [albeit not much]

    Use EscrowDNS or Sedo for a secure transaction.
    It's full of scammers these days.

    I agree with the other posters about egay. Sedo is where I use to flip. Not to mention that ebayers are always looking for something for nothing. However, I do like your other domain name that you have for sale. "rarepage.com" . I could think of a million ways to build back links for that doamin and easily sell it for high $xxxx to low $xx,xxx to the right buyers.

    How long have you been selling domains?

    DNforum is a great place for noobs.

    Can I remove the listings and build backlinks and then list them again?

    And mail that guy with the price?

    You can remove the listings and build back links. But I wouldn't try to sell it to that guy. Also, you can list your domain on DNforum for a free pro appraisal. There is a profitable business selling domains to other resellers that are more apt to take the time to build back links and beef up the equity in the domain. Some can take a domain like, stinkychessyflapjacks.com, which is worth less than the reg fee, and then build back links for several months. After they are done, they have a domain with 100k+ backlings that gets 500 to 2000 Unique visits per day and the worth went somewhere around $10,000. :)

    Be wary of scams... I'm not sure why he would be telling you how profitable investing in domains is...

    I received a very similar email a few weeks ago when I had some of my domains listed for sale. I found out that the guy had scammed many other people, and then found out what his scam was.. (fake appraisals) I played along for a bit, but soon lost interest and then just stopped answering his emails.
