    No development whatsoever, no traffic. I know it's one per post but to avoid multiple threads I also have scottishbarn.co.uk and englishbarn.co.uk.

    not sure what a French barn is - maybe for storing garlic(??)....I don't remember anything much from French class apart from a song about Orangina!!!

    The barns closer to home don't mean much to me either?!?!

    No, I should elaborate. I originally registered frenchbarn.co.uk as my parents had a property (a converted barn) in the Loire Valley and I was going to set up a simple website for them to advertise it for rental, with some basic pictures, etc.

    I then also registered scottishbarn.co.uk and englishbarn.co.uk as there was potential for them to acquire further properties but it never happened. As such I have three 'property' domains that I now have no use for.

    Having not sold any domain names before I guess I am just trying to get an idea of their potential value although I certainly don't expect it to be earth shattering :D

    There was a time when it was quite popular to import barns from France, re-erect them over here and convert to residential. Not sure if that still happens or if it helps value this domain - but difficult to see much value in it, other than perhaps to someone who owns a barn in France ;-)

    Very low stats on that French barn, would be suprised if you could recover your reg fee each year.

    English barn is about the same and Scottish barn is virtually non existant.

    Sorry but your not even looking at reg fee on these.

    I don't own one, but I hope to own a place in France next year, I sent Bane a £50 offer for the domain earlier via PM.

    Thanks for the PM reply, Adam, all 3 names now sold as agreed via PM, we'll be sorting payment/transfer tomorrow, no idea what I'll do with the English and Scottish ones, but handy keeping them together as a set anyway.

    [edit]

    All paid and transferred, thanks for the smooth sale :)
