    Depends on the backlinks the domain acquired in it's lifetime. A domain that has a huge age without backlink won't bring you that far. Especially when it has been dropped between.

    It's better than a new domain but be careful Check the Domain Metrics, Domain indexing rate, penalty, and archive of the site.
