    I really wanted this one, and started to work on this deal in 2007. Finally I closed it. Everyone who's opinion is important to me, are saying that I overpaid for this name. I won't be able to say the price, I paid a lot, but you know, sometimes you just have to pay, and if you don't the name will be gone. I am an end user for this one, and started development.

    Some of the priciest real estate in Canada, how can you go wrong? Super category killer. Real estate is one of the best products - high prices, always buyers and sellers, suited to internet for details/photos/video. Depending what you do you may get Vancouver realtors interested in advertising on the site.

    HuntingtonBeachRealEstate.com just sold for $20,000 - population 200,000 people. That's in Orange County, California.

    Thanks guys for you input! I didn't know about HuntingtonBeachRealEstate.com being sold for $20k. Yes, I am planning to sell ads on the site to realtors as HugeGrowth mentioned. I will show you in few months what I ve got :)

    As a REALTOR, I will definately keep my eye on the progression of this.
    I think anything under 50k would be reasonable...

    Hey Mike, maybe one hand can wash the other here...

    I'm a REALTOR in Toronto, bought a very good real estate-related .ca last fall, finally started to make use out of it. It's still in pre-launch mode, but would be glad to link to your site if you'd link to mine.

    Anybody else who has some real estate related sites and would be interested in a similar arrangement, and would obviously like to know the site's URL, PM me.

    nice geo profession
    we hold a ton of geo real estate terms
    geo homes
    geo homes for sale

    no RE domains, since the searches are 'low'

    but could be a definite local player in homes and homes for sale searches plus a bunch of other stuff, rentals, management, whatever

    instead of selling 'ads' you need to learn how to acquire 'tenant's

    IMO

    much better way to monetize such an investment

    if you want to become the king of that market pick up

    geohomes
    georentals
    geohomesforsale
    georealtors (possible TM issues)

    try for .com but if you want to be the king, you acquire all the top tlds

    .ca for you
    .net
    .org
    .biz
    .info
    .mobi

    then you control the local geo for RE related serps

    keywords are king for stuff like this

    and if you develop you can land a nice monthly residual that will get you low 5X to mid 5X a year of income

    Hard to say if you overpaid without knowing the price.

    Vancouver and most of Canada still have good RE markets, contrary ot areas of the US where prices have fallen 65% or even more from their 05/06 highs, i.e. Phoenix, Las Vegas, Miami, Calif Inland Empire area. P.S. Realtors are well known as being quite cheap and real tough to sell them ads.

    Latest news is Vancouver home prices are up due to increased Asian and East Coast buying. TucsonRealEstate.com just sold for around $50K. I'd rather have VancouverRealEstate

    Congratulations, with the market so hot now, it's hard for you to overpay on
    VancouverRealEstate.com, if you have a solid plan to monetize it. Work hard on
    your website and domain seo ... hope soon you'll be on the first page on Google and
    getting lots of traffic.

    Latest news shows Chinese buyers are coming in droves, buying out developments before they are even finished. They like investing in real estate in a stable place, to diversify investments. One realtor even opened an office in China. Don't know if it's a bubble or not, but Vancouver and Toronto are tiny cities compared to what they have over there. If Chinese demand continues there is only so much real estate available.

    Nice acquisition.

    I like the name and since you said you are going to develop it I think you hardly overpaid for it.

    Would like to see the finished product, but for now I really like the name.

    More domainers need to start getting in this mindset, especially with the massive decline in parking revenue.

    It not a matter of just creating a "mini-site". Create sites after sites after sites, full of relevant content, and be your own entrepreneur and sites manager.

    Any update on this one, Provider? Been checking it every once in awhile... still seeing just a placeholder. Wishing you the best with this domain... it's a good one and I hope it makes back the sales price for you.

    Real estate is a great web niche. Real estate brokerage is a much tougher business.

    i missed to place a bid on GD expiring actions for WisconsinRealEstate/com couple days ago. It did not get an opening bid of $100. Is there something wrong with the domain, or did I really miss out on a chance to get a god RE domain for cheap?

    And for RE domains, is it better to have large city / town or state as part of the name.

    Its a super rare name due to Rob Grant nearly owning all of the country/cityrealestate.com domain names across the globe.
    congrats!
