    Yeap! List it!

    For me, the highest I've ever paid is about $450 for a PR6 domain.

    Personally, the max i have paid is 900$ for a brand name. It is all relative to your needs. i wanted that domain name as it was my brand and i couldnt afford it to slip so i had to shell out but i can imagine someone not paying more than 50$ for it. At the same time,there are domains that get sold for $250000 on flippa as someone sees value in them for a business idea.

    I have never paid more than $10 for any of my domains and most of the times I get my domains for either $2 (with privacy) or $3(from godaddy without privacy). :)

    If I remember correct it was around $90 for a PR4 :p

    But I found a way to get cheaper domains, thing is that I don't have that much to invest :/

    I just bought one a couple of days ago for $557 it only had a handful of referring domains, about 50 in total.
    But it had d0follow links from cnn.com, wall street journal, huffingtonpost.com, business insider, inc.com, motherjones, hbr etc

    Reseller or end-user? If reseller I hope you get your profits tenfold.

    Most I paid for a domain was 1200. Sold that domain for 7800$. Depends on how you look at paying for a domain. If you look at it as an investment then it doesn't matter as long as you are confident this investment would bring profits. If you buy an overpriced domain as a whim then yeah, cry rivers.
