    I have the following domain names and am thinking about selling some ( or all). I would value as much feed back as poss. especially on the first 3 as I am finding valuation so subjective. Also is just putting them up on Sedo under ' Make Offer' best way of selling these?
    Cheers everyone

    I wouldn't want to rob anyone - so in the words of Duncan Bannatyne 'I'm out'

    Im not surprised you have some subjective opinions on the names - mainly the first three.

    They certainly have good value. I think the subjectivity comes from who might be interested.

    From a domainer point of view, im guessing there wouldnt be a lot of type-in traffic so the value is a lot lower than it would be to an end user. From an end user POV, the names are so generic that if i saw any of these sold for 5 figures, I wouldnt be surprised.

    Appraisal- shoppingcentre.co.uk

    Is anyone prepared to give me a realistic ball park figure for each of the three top names preferably individually ? I'm only trying to get some feedback prior to selling. Plus anyone prepared to suggest the best strategy for selling these, or do I just stick to SEDO. You seem to have lots of experience in this game you guys, how about sharing some of it? ( please)

    reply to badger

    Thanks for that, Badger. Which would you think would be the highest earner? Shopping Centre or Music store?

    Give Sedo a try. Nothing to lose. Don't get your hopes up for high offers. I think you're looking at high £xxx to v low £xxxx on the top 3.

    What's your own realistic price expectation?

    Hi Lebowski

    I really do not know what to expect but am coming to the conclusion that my best bet might just to put one on Sedo with 'make offer' but pay for front page exposure and see what offers come in. It really is a case of its only worth what someone is prepared to offer. any suggestions for other sites to put a name up for sale on so I get as much exposure as poss? By the way it was my 14year old son's idea to buy these names about 12 years ago.
    Cheers

    Rather insightful for a 2 year old :)

    There is not much out there apart from Sedo, you could submit them to the auction in June in Amsterdam held by Rick.

    For me, shoppingcentre has the greatest value, as there's potential for sale to an end user for a physical shopping centre, or use as a portal site. Possibly £xxxx.

    musicstore is a difficult one, as there are some big players who trade on a brand name, rather than rely on generics. A smaller company may be interested though. Possibly low £xxxx.

    videostore is not as great as it sounds at first. To me it would suggest an on-line store selling films in a physical VHS format. If I was purchasing something in a digital format that would have been on VHS in the past, then I would look for a "film store" or "movie store". Yes, video is still a commonly used term, but is related more to freely available media found on sites such as YouTube. So probably low £xxx.

    Calum.

    i would try and contact the people that build shopping centres there are only a handful of them about and they might use the domain for a redirect to there own site,i always find it hard to value something that cannot be purchased online or an affiliate of that product,if you understand my thinking.

    shopping centre

    search volume January 8,100
    average search volume 5,400
