Not so much an appraisal thread, as a reported sale:

LLLLLLLLLL.ca
(not actually L's), but a 2-word generic

Sold for $350 through "inquire button" on a domain parking page.

I picked it up in TBR last year for reg fee.

Your thoughts? How did I do?

I guess that really depends on what the two word generic was ;)

If it has sold why the secret. I wouldn't expect a non disclosure on a $350 name

I dont believe in selling domains for a profit personally.

Granted, but none of you bid on it in the TBR run, so it can't be that good of a name, right? :p

Sorry for not disclosing the name - I wasn't trying to tease y'all - I didn't think you'd care.

I can say:
It's a lifestyle related name.
I think the buyer is a maybe a SEO/marketing type developing for himself???
There is a Canadian brand with the same name, and their current dot-com domain has another word tacked on the end.

So my self-assessment is: I did well on the name; maybe poorly in the negotiation department, because I really didn't try to learn anything about my buyer before throwing out a price (I started out with a $500 price with sale completion within 3 days - ended up with $350 in 2 days).

Not really there are a lot of good search terms that don't get picked up. They would be a solid acquisition for a business but not necessarily for us when you're trying to keep the quality of the portfolio high and prefer names that will attract type in traffic.

So a TBR name for a few bucks flipped for $350 is OK. UNLESS it was a $3500 name or more. IF your client was a SEO type there's a good chance it was worth a lot more to someone. If you''re worried about disclosing it publicly then just PM all us nosey types with the info. We're good at keeping things confidential.

It's always great that someone picks up a TBR name and does well on it. Many of us have certain interests or areas of specialization that we focus on and for that reason alone is why this industry has so much more room to grow.
c_j congratulations on a good sale and I hope that you have many more to tell us about. We all learn when our experiences are shared.

you should have called it 10-letter 2-word generic .ca, not LLLLLLLLLL.ca
I was shocked initially that someone would need LLLLLLLLLL.ca and start to check just to find it is still available :)

A few basic rules here in the Appraisal forum.

1. Domain must be in the TITLE. Example: dncdotca, dnc.ca, dnc(.)ca - No spaces!
