    Thanks for sharing. To me these names will sell with a high value if the population is high and the targeted keyword is of high value. I have one I am trying to sell and the highest I have gotten for it is $100, since the person in question already has the dot net and I am trying to sell the dot com. Non of the others I contacted replied my email.

    great article...best way to get the best offer from a geo domain is develop and rank it for the term....charge a few companies listing fees and usually one will want to buy you out.

    My experience with real estate agents is the same. They will spend hundreds or thousands on fly swatters, note pads, and fridge magnets, but they won't pay $X,XXX for a valuable geo domain in their area. Crazy.

    I seriously caution people who concentrate on buying only aftermarket GEOs. GEOs that are outbounded only sail for $350 at the average HIGHEST. That means, if you sail only 1 in 10 GEOS, you're spending $280 (if closeouts) for 10 domains, but only sailing for $350ish. That's risky because you need to keep up a 10% sail rate, which isn't feasible tbh. Even the long-standing GEO ppl sail less than that over time.

    And remember that GEOs really don't sail on NP, so it's not like you can easily recoup your investment if none of your GEOs sail.

    I will vouch for this I had two, one in .com and one in .ca
    I ended up dropping both of them after a namepros member was kind enough to inform me of the trade mark. The .com ended up being picked up by someone else and I have been spreading the news on namepros ever since.

    In the years after I have seen numerous members with Realtor domains and I send them a gentle warning every time.

    It is good to see a mention of it in this article. (y)

    PS. It goes to show you that a made up trademarked word cannot be used in other applications and REALTOR is one of the most heavily defended trademarks in the world. It does not matter what second word you add if they see you use it you will have to defend yourself.

    So how do you suggest we handle geo domains. Any tips on selling without outbounding?

    GEO won't sail unless outbound. If you wait inbound, unless you own something hot like BostonAuto.com, then trying to sail ShreveportEmergencyMedicine.com by pure inbound is risky because even after 10 years, it may not sail.

    I sell GEO domains frequently either via inbound or direct sales on venues like GoDaddy.
    No outbound involved.

    A couple in the last week were LakewoodChiropractor(dot)com & LongBeachAcupuncture(dot)com.

    oh nice. I have Oakland///Se/o in king. Do you think it will sell by inbound if I just wait? I outbounded it to around 40ish people, but the only response I got was a $40 offer that never went any higher than that.
