What's the value of your best IDN?

Take a guesstimate...

Biased opinions expected :p

Disclosure of actual domain not

If you had to valuate your absolute best IDN right now in today's market - how much could it be worth to the right buyer?

Re: What's the value of your best IDN?

In today's market what I think I could sell my best domain for if I had contact with the top enduser company. The poll is a bit warped (sorry Seamo)
There's plenty of domains that I know users have worth more than $90,000 but I am unsure if I sell my best with current prices I could get $1,000,000 "today or this month"
Later I fully believe it's possible.
A partial portfolio acquisition I could see a million or more.

Re: What's the value of your best IDN?

what value you ask about?

True value
Fair value
Inherent value
Market value
snapnames auctions value
Future value
Traffic/Revenue value
Personal value

my names are worth more than money ......

they worth what efforts, hardwork, memories, experience, success and future plans are worth

there was a huge gap between offers and bids but it is decreasing and the market started to move on by snapnames auction bids.

Returning to the original question about the value of my best IDN

it is still cheap at 1,000,000$ ... lol :p

Re: What's the value of your best IDN?

I think you will find that in the coming weeks most credible sellers will lock down their portfolios. That is going to give a very significant jolt to an already unstable market. The consequence is that those that want to acquire specific names are going to soon have to pay similar prices to that you might for ASCII.

with all these garbage ascii names selling for high xx,xxx at traffic expect regular ascii names going up as well.

Its insane. We need more IDN portfolio buyers now.

Re: What's the value of your best IDN?

I don't know the value of my best idn. The value can only be calculated if the name is sold, and i don't think i'm going to sell my best names anytime soon.

Indeed. You can only set the value if you don't want to sell it. If you want to sell it, the market will set the value.

OK, if it's that black and white then please start an auction with what you perceive to be your best names :-)

Just joking :-) But you get my point.

My point is simply that at whatever time you decide to sell your name, the market will choose the value, not you. Too many people labour under the (mis)apprehension that if they hold onto names for ages, they will be worth millions. That attitude has caused more than a few bankruptcies.

The market very definitely sets the value of commodities, but domains are not commodities. By definition they are as individual as the End Users they we might seek to place them with.

Commodity prices are determined by supply and demand, but for items as individual domain names it is all about perception. They need to be placed with a buyer. Often buyers will be targeted and groomed for a particular domain. In some cases one or two individuals have understood this so well that they seek not only to hype their individual domains but manipulate the market as a whole.

If only it were as simple as economics.

Well let's presume for a minute very few of the domains sold by IDNF members are sold because of "market manipulation". That really just leaves the organization or individual making the highest offer in the next x years. That sounds like pretty simple economics to me.

Having said that, anyone seriously developing their domains has a major advantage when negotiating a price. They can say "this one is already producing XXX visitors and XXX income per month." Much better than X visitors and X income per month. The asking price will then have a rationale behind it, be higher, and much more likely be achieved.

Re: What's the value of your best IDN?

DG this is my future rational also.
Even with minimum development you can show potential end users that the domain is already attracting at least XXXX to XXXXXX amount of targeted uniques a month. That is without major development or advertising.
More stats the better... This is for those endusers who might not "get it".

Subjective? How does one back this up? I believe I have a million-plus dollar domain. It was one of my first. Can't prove the value, though.
