    Hi.. For privacy issues I wont disclose the name of my domain.

    but i'll explain it ..


    it's a commonly used English word (conversation, so very general, not niche specific or anything) it is a noun

    has 6 letters

    .com

    registered in 1995.. hasn't been expired so still has the age..

    has pr.. type in traffic..

    from what i've told you, what is the minimum sale price? ..

    thanks..

    It looks like a word guessing game.

    $50-$5000 or more, completely depends on the word and its usability.

    We could give you a better answer if (without disclosing your keyword) you could tell us the following:

    - how much type in traffic per day or month
    - how many searches per month for this word in AdWords Keyword Tool? Broad / Exact?
    - what is Average CPC for your keyword in AdWords Keyword Tool
    - what is Average CTR for your keyword in AdWords Keyword Tool

    That information will help people here to provide you a realistic answer to your question

    Booger? Lifted? Tripped? So many words that are 6 letters, and commonly used, are basically worthless.

    The only way someone can tell you how much your domain is worth. Is knowing the domain itself. Sorry but that is the truth. With some people the domain can cost $XXXX but with some $X.

    You can go to Sedo.com or Moniker.com and pay for a professional appraisal. they will Analyze your domain and send you a detailed appraisal report, plus, they will take care of your privacy issue.

    Most online free appraisal services are not even close to the actual value of your domain.

    unless you are doing BH stuff on the site and don't want people to find out what are the privacy issues? for any good domain you should have private registration for $8/year.

    $0 due to the domain being unknown. Must be known to appraise. Glorified stories do not help.

    Your domain looks decent. Avg CPC of $1.40 means there are money to be made in this niche. See what kind of products being advertised on Google when you search for your KW. Maybe that will give you an idea:

    - how to monetize it yourself
    - whom to approach with your domain offered for sale

    I would not sell it for less than $1K, but most likely I would try to develop it into whitehat site that brings value to its target audience. Exact 6-letter .COM brings an instant credibility in the eyes of your audience. So build a quality site and you could become an authority in your niche.

    If you want to sell it, I think that really it will cost as much as the buyer is willing to pay for it. Depending on the buyer's business plan, they may offer you $5K or $50K, for us it is impossible to tell exact numbers.

    Also, I think you would sell it faster if you shop around your niche - aka research who are the biggest players in your niche, who spends most of the money advertising in your niche, and then let them know that domain is available for sale. With proper wording and attitude of your sales letter, they may reply with an offer. Let them know they are not the only ones you have contacted though, so they will know the offer should be at least half decent.


    For your sales letter, I would choose the following strategy:

    - I would make the goal of your sales letter not to get an offer but to make them AWARE about XXXXXX.COM ownership opportunity and to make them comfortable to CONTACT you / inquire for more info.

    - I would contact them ONE BY ONE and give each of your prospects an "exclusivity period" to reply before you contact the next prospect. Just say something like this

    ... I will be waiting until XX-XX-XXXX (put the date, smth like 2 weeks from now) for your reply before I will contact the next potential buyer for XXXXXX.COM. Would you be interested to discuss a potential XXXXXX.COM ownership transfer, it is very important to contact me before Monday, XX-XX-XXXX, before I have entered into negotiations with the next potential buyer (use singular "buyer", not "buyers", that should add to a message of "exclusive period" being a real thing, only one "buyer" at time)
    ...

    This way, you are addressing their objection of dealing with an amateur cybersquatter who is unreliable to deal with and will just quit from the done deal if offered $1K more by competitors. So they would not want to participate in a miserable activity of concurring bidding for your domain with 10 other people and you are laughing at the process. You do not want them to think like this, because in this mindset they will be less likely to reply to your letter.

    By giving them a "period of exclusivity" they will feel that their chances of getting domain are real, there will be less fear of competition, and they will be more likely to contact you. The goal of your letter is NOT to sell the domain but to make them contact you and open negotiations.

    Of course you are shopping for the best offer but your sales letter should portrait a different picture for your customer.

    Since there is a real timeline in your sales letter, that should also increase your chances of getting someone to contact you. If that happens, they are interested and will eventually give you some sort of an offer anyways. Now, once you have got an offer for $NNNN, I would just politely explain that before committing to the deal I would like to contact a few more prospects, and that will take 1 or 2 months time. Ask them will they be comfortable with that. There is a chance they will up their offer immediately. If not, you may counter their offer by asking for (2 x $NNNN ) and the deal is done immediately on the spot without going to competition. They may agree or not, use your negotiation skills.


    Anyways, it looks like your domain is valuable, so good luck with your plans for it.

    Do tools like websiteoutlook aid at all in trying to determine the value of a domain?
