Do domain owners all know (or overestimate) the value of their domain these days?

    They all quote high prices now when you contact them, even if they're not a domainer.

    It's called negotiating. If you don't start high. How do you expect to get a high price for your domain. If you start with a low bin. How do you ever expect any interested party ever to accept your first price offer. Unless you have undervalued the domain. Without specific examples. I don't think we can give you specific advice. But it always helps if you know your customer. Or can find out as much as possible about them thru research. Both the buyer and the seller need to be realistic for a sale to materialize. Doesn't matter what the price or the domain. Being unrealistic with prices will not be conducive to making a sale, either from the buyers or sellers perspective.

    are you domainr or enduser?

    when you make first offer on a domain, how much do you offer?

    often a good way to get seller not to make his price too high, is by making your first offer not too low. ;)

    If someone is going to be bothered, and expected to give up something they own by solicitation then be ready for a strong price, you can’t knock on someone’s door, and ask for a handout. People have paid to acquire also, not everything costs reg fee, even fresh reg dates can be expensive aftermarket auctions. Maybe all email inquiries offer to little on the flip side, but depends on your definition of what is a lot.

    There's a little analogy to be had even at places like Amazon. Pick an item and take a moment to look at the sellers prices page, yes even amazon direct/prime, You can find pricing for the same item at three-fold for the same item on the supplier page. It's not rare, it's very common.

    Domains like any market place are no different. A little look at dnjournal sales prices will show you the motivation behind high listing prices. One motivated buyer is all that is required, Everything cheap is down to how motivated is the seller, Do they need the cash flow or not. finding a distressed seller with a good portfolio was quite a common practice in the past - Not sure it works so well without 'Whois' these days.

    Look at the domain make-ups that get sold on dnjornal then ask again, Many stun even an ol'hand like me. A lot of this weeks sales were particularly off-the-wall

    Yes, big time! Just look at the auctions at GD - random sequence of consonants, price $9876... Are you kidding me?

    Get into the game and understand the wheres and why fores, The best opportunities come from flexing with the market, not your beliefs in where it should operate. The best understanding comes from viewing the whole shebang from a third person viewpoint, ie why 10k doesn't matter in the realm of things, to some. Our market moves and in very few instances by a domainers logic

    IMO more people today then in past years are familiar with select domain names changing hands for large dollar amounts.

    Domain names are more commonly viewed as or considered as " an asset " today, more so too then in past years.

    Accordingly, its' likely some general sellers or domain name owners " start out or hold out " for a very hefty price for their name believing there is a cash overloaded buyer somewhere out there willing to pay big bucks for their non - premium domain.
