    Hi Guys

    We are selling a site in mortgage niche

    Continue reading only if you have $5,600 or more in your pocket and if you're not expecting to get rich over night. The rules are the same as before. If we get more than one offer we will give it to the person that offer more than the other guy/girl.

    ---
    This is a small site in a mortgage niche, previously owned by a huge mortgage corporation. They changed their name to something else (few years ago) and domain was bought on auction few months ago (we started working on it in Fabruary).

    We worked on turning this site into mortgage advice blog/site and we posted around 40 articles. Most of the articles are 1000 worders, but we did post some shorter articles this month. We didn't like the short style so if we do not sell the site we will continue with 1000 words articles.
    I was planning to post 20 articles each month but somehow I always find something else more important. Which is the main reason for selling.

    Some things you should know if you're interested in purchasing this domain/site

    1. The site is getting around 3K UVs each month with around 7.5K page views. These are all mortgage related visitors.

    2. When we took over domain majority of visitors were actually trying to find the mortgage company that was there before. Have in mind that all these keywords they search are mortgage keywords and CPC is good. Now they make around 80% of the visitors and rest are visitors coming searching for mortgage advice.

    3. According to SEMRush, search engine traffic price for this site is $27.000 (this is estimated price of keywords in Google, the amount you would have to pay to get the same amount of visitors for those keywords, each month)

    4. Since Google have nothing against this domain, long tail keywords started ranking by themselves. All you need is to post a valuable article and it will rank somewhere. These are long tail keywords like "how to get mortgage after bankruptcy" (this is just an example). Don't expect miracles but the more articles you post the more visitors you will get, no need for too much SEO on this domain anymore. It is old and it was always mortgage related. Basically, all you need is on-page SEO for the starters and later you can decide if you want to do something else.

    5. If you are wondering about Adsense I will tell you that we have one banner (160x600) on the right side and this brings around $70-$80/month. I don't have adsense myself so I asked one of my writers to post it there so we can check if there will be some clicks. I am not Adsense expert so I guess the placement can be optimized to get more clicks.

    6. The site have a lot of links from some random mortgage and real estate sites, some nice links from press release sites (from pages with PR). These are real press release sites, no spam. And there are also a couple of newer links from nice sites like

    Finance.yahoo.com

    Benzinga.com

    TheStockMarketWatch.com


    7. Site Page Rank is 3 and Domain authority is 34. Nothing is boosted of course and site was never used for any kind of SEO. No links were sold there

    8. It is a WP site at the moment so if you buy site we will export all pages and articles into XML file so you can upload it into your theme. We are using a free and simple theme from mythemeshop.com. You need to have GoDaddy account so we can push domain to you once you pay for it.

    9. Site have certified Alexa metrics. More than 90% of visitors are from USA

    10. Payments via Skrill and PayPal

    The price won't go down and if we do not sell the site we will keep it and grow it. So, please don't ask me to give you a better offer.

    Please PM me ONLY if you're a real potential buyer.

    Mostly Google, a bit of a Bing and Yahoo and a bit from links

    In this screenshot you can see that weekends are slow, other days are getting around 350-400 page views

    Done

    The most important thing here (in my opinion) is that domain is recognized as an authority domain in mortgage niche and you pretty much have to write and publish mortgage articles to gain more visitors. No need for SEO, you;re not starting from zero. You may say:"well, why don;t you do that?" My answer is:"That's why I asked for a higher price than majority wants to pay"
    If I don;t sell it soon, I will continue what we already started.

    One of the guys from BHW asked me 2 weeks ago to place a phone there so they can collect leads. He said people are calling but he didn't managed to sell them anything yet, I guess.

    As described in OP, site is earning around $70-$80/month with one adsense banner. NO cpa or any other monetization installed, we we're not planning to monetize it before we reach 30K views/month

    Special offer 50% down for all the interested members before we close this thread.
