    As always I find it hard to value names and even decide which are even any good. I've just bought the domains below (all .co.uk names) and would appreciate any views on which are good and which are crap:)

    I'm not looking for valuations, but it would be interesting to see what people thought was the best of the bunch :)

    The one I like best is parkhomes, might have to sell my house and buy one if I don't stop spending so much on domains :cool:

    nice buy Paul, not much crap in there I don't think.

    Out of all of them, I can't find too much excitement in:
    parkhomes
    businesstransfers (just can't see what it'd be for)
    office/s for sale (not often bought I don't think)

    All the others have value,

    Some of the best in my opinion are:
    shopstolet
    pubsforsale
    farmsforsale
    etc

    and
    barstaff
    bricklayers and
    bedsits

    Difficult as I think they all have a place.

    Too much probably, or maybe they were a bargain, only time will tell :)


    Hi A,
    That was my first reaction until I did a bit of research and found there are 200,000 of them in the UK. I would guess with the value of property these are going to become more and more popular as a cheaper alternative to conventional property.


    As much as I love some of the tolet & forsale names I wasn't too sure about their value as I've never really seen any of these sold, however, I guess they would look great on a for sale/to let board very hard to forget www. officestolet .co.uk:)

    Most people's reaction when I tell them I'm going to do a site for Park Homes is, what's a Park Home? So it's good to see that some other people know what they are :)

    Always a market

    Always a market...the world is very big when linking web...1000's of park homes....my mrs thinks a company called park homes offers park homes

    Had a landlord say to me....can you sell my log cabins...I then advertised them on general property sites...loads of enquiries even though I didn't think these property portals were any good for such things....just shows!!

    parkhomes

    Yeah parkhomes big market. i'm surprised everyone hasn't heard of them good domain.
    liked: parkhomes.co.uk, barstaff.co.uk, hoardings.co.uk

    talking about log cabins etc also. i had a land company a few years ago & sold off some land recently that had left over. the main enquiries were from people interested in logcabins & believe it or not living underground. the planning laws are so draconian in this country people have actually had to consider living underground to try to appease the clipboard brigade.
    it's at times like these you know it's time to vote with your feet. oh & if its your kids birthday & you have more rubbish than usual & you leave an extra bag next to your bin, you can look forward to being fined for flytipping. Britain truly is Great these days!
    i'll stop moaning now :mrgreen:

    Some nice names in there.

    I quite like keyrings.co.uk and some of the others mentioned previously.

    I can't believe some people don't know what a park home is! I'm seeing a portal listing them for sale and rent etc.

    Hi

    parkhomes is certainly a good domain, especially as we are in the park home business! Do you still own the domain?

    Well I think you are either bluffing, have money to burn or got these at a ridiculously low price. This is a very valuable collection of names very many of which are minimum £5k in my opinion.

    Good work. Find some developers - don't sell them.
