alldig- I think you are to restrictive on your no hyphens..YOU may not want them but if they are appropriate keywords used together there is indeed a market for them..
Iive had offers for 3 of my domains with hyphens..including Baseball-Posters.com all the time.. I do agree getting the .net is pointless (unless of course you own the .com)
The ONLY reason someone would not want a hyphenated would be if all they dealt in were true type-in domains..which are all hoarded already anyways..and you have to "invest" in first..
the problem is MOST domains have no "natural" typein value what so ever anyways...so whether you own BaseballPosters.com or Baseball-Posters.com makes NO difference other than perception.. to those that dont know any better..(I know I owned them in this example)
So yes.. you can register hyphenated domains and even sell them..but no one is making money selling domains anyways...that mentality should not even be in a "newbie" selling a domain every few months for $100 is what most do..(after spending thousands) theres no real market ..a little bit of swaping between domain speculators but no market is driving a purchase spree of after market domains even .coms
If you are not using your domains ..your losing money.. (for 99.9% of aftermarketers
The domain aftermarket has collapsed.. pure and simple and will never come back like it was 3 years ago
The REAL value in a domain(even foir resale) is the bottom line..
The very first question buyers are asking is ..I want to see your trafficc logs and how much revenues is it bringing in..
offers for domains without traffic whether typ-is or not are simply few and far between...
sorry to brighten everyones day
Maybe I'm wrong maybe thats only been my experiance.but hey I am on a resellers board and even here thereis only a speckling of sales going through..
Mike.. what I dont understand is your resale value model..if you arent basing it upon typeins, (natural traffic) se placement (placement work already done) overture stats (is there a market)
Then what do use to base the value?
