    3 word domain name. Would be categorized in Food/Weight Loss.

    Freq.: 576,000
    Only 260 searches

    Does Valuate and Estibot pricing mean that's what it's really worth?

    No, estibot says some of my junk domains are worth thousands, when in reality they would be valued at reg. fee or less.

    a 3 word domain is quite long. Unless it has a ton of search (10k or more) it wont be worth over $500...
    at 260 searches, unless it is an expanding niche that is going to grow, it is not worth it.

    I feel like domains are horrible for reselling unless you got something cool like weightloss.com

    Depends on the domain of course but I would not go off the valuation from Valuate etc.

    Generally not, still it depends on Domain.

    Estibot shouldn't be trusted, I'd try to get someone in the industry to tell you if it is a good investment or not.

    I think $530 is very much high.

    Still it depends on the domains.
