Take the number of characters contained within your domain and multiply by 10. Take this number and add the amount of direct inquiries you have had to purchase it. Divide it by the average price offered by all offers received in the past 6 months. You should now have a number between 0 and 630. Subtract this number by itself and add the amount that someone has deposited into an escrow account for your name and you will come up with the exact amount that your name is truly worth!

You see it is really very easy.

"Divide it by the average price offered by all offers received in the past 6 months." Most domains got average zero dollar offered in past 6 months, my Math teacher has not taught me how to divide by zero. Now, I am in trouble! :confused: :rolleyes:

It is good to hear from you again goh! If you owned a 91 corvette you would know the answer to divide by zero. The last line in the post was most pivotal me thinks.;)

Hi Dnbuy,

I am still thinking the relation between the above formula and this quote "Realistic pricing of domain names is crucial in order for a respectable and sustainable industry to emerge from the ashes of the Business.com fall out.". I am still confused. :confused:

This seems an unusual post by someone who makes a living out of others registering domain names.

I am not saying I disagree with your maths, just that it seems like a barber telling people to grow long hair.

There's more money to be made in coloring and styling those long locks:D

MattyP, that is because you don't know what this 91 corvette owner has in his profile.

Honesty is the best policy. I will let the dreamers debate whether or not their domain is the next business.com. The reality is that a domain name is only worth what you can sell it for!

When you think about it, anything is only worth what someone will pay for it.

Same as your local Ferrari dealership won't value their cars based on the wannabe Ferrari drivers that window shop, they wait for the serious buyers who will pay their asking price.

I think a domain is worth what the seller can get for it in the time frame they are prepared to wait, taking into account their need to sell, the value the domain has in their current usage and the efforts the seller is prepared to go to to market it.

Most appraisals in my opinion are worthless. I've only had 2 domains appraised by professionals in the past. Most appraisal services out there are a big joke, and I'll bet if you had one domain appraised by 2 different companies. They would give you a totally different price estimation for your domain. The only reason why I put some of my names up for appraisal on this board, is that I'm curious of other peoples' comments for a particular domain(s) and also to help finding more angles of what it could be used for. The value you or anyone else give my domains does not effect my own valuation of a domain. After many years of experience matched with sales, I'm quite confident with my own appraisals. Maybe not the exact value, but what the domain is worth at a minimum.

The value of an appraisal lies in pointing out what the positives are, and what the negatives are.

That way, you will be prepared to posture, positioning, preen for rejections or leverage your value.

The true worth of appraisals are not about absolute values based on formulae or historical observations - its about getting you ready for your sale.

The rest is up to you.
