    I have top level domains that I want to sell.  They are number 1 or 2 for the most common key word searches in real estate.  A typical search is boston ma real estate and we have the domain bostonmarealestate.com

    Brand value and highest search term.  Any ideas or resources?  Have you had succes selling domains?

      Where did you get that information?  I just looked up "boston ma real estate" on Google Adwords and it only gets around 8,000 searches a month, plus there's a lot of competition for the term.

      "Boston real estate" and "Boston ma homes" get over 100,000 searches a month.

    I am not sure about how valuable the names are or levels of traffic, but people usually want to see earnings from the site, so the usual thing is to ask for 10 months worth of (potential) earnings.

    You can then add more if the site has lots of original unique content or any other good selling point, additional software licences etc.

    Have you looked at http://flippa.com ?

      Thanks for the resource.  I am focusing on the value of the URL.

    The leads the site generates might be a good source of income, realty agents will pay good money for fresh genuine leads. If the domain produces no leads whatsoever and without any PageRank its probably not worth much more than you originally paid for it.

    And the only reason your domain name comes at the top is because you pay to have it listed as a sponsored link, I would recommend sitting on it for awhile and seeing if your investment pays off, if not sell it and move on or create more backlinks over time with your domain!.

    domain names are cheap and plentiful. i can't imagine paying for something that's not producing

    Age, PageRank, backlinks, keyword search volume, etc.

    Who buys this type of domain are mainly people looking for profit from affiliate marketing, adsense, etc. You hardly will find someone that actually has a real business in that area to buy your domains.

    So calculate the earnings that the site has currently is important. Even if you won't sell the site, it's a good estimative of the value of the domain. Five to 10 times the monthly revenue would be a good initial value.

    You can put your domains at sedo.com just to look if it is of some interest.
