    The domain is not always valuable. His connections are. In this case, an average domainer would be lucky to get $50. Most domainers have no rich connections. Sell to the one who has money to spend and more often than not a better sale price will be realized. If you have decent domains, build a network of affluent buyers. Easier said than done.

    Connections or personal network have nothing to do with a sale to an enduser. Unless, you sell startup type names and have a connection to a VC guy or company that consistently has ideas or concepts that need names.

    So, you're saying you could have sold the name for $7k if you were the owner.

    Another factor is he has the funding and patience to not just jump at the first offer that comes along. Thats the difference between selling names for $xx or $x,xxx

    ^^^ This. Most of us would either not buy it OR sell it for $100 and be happy. If you DONT need the money you can wait for the right buyer. 10 years at 8.40 renewal is nothing to hold out and maybe get $2,3,4 thousand dollars. The issue is when you times that by hundreds of domains.

    The way a name is marketed is what helps sell the name. When a potential buyer types in a name and lands at DomainMarket.com the buyer automatically knows that a real business owns this domain and is in business to sell this domain. The professionalism of his marketplace is probably the biggest reason he makes sales. No different then HugeDomains selling $2,500 names all day long because the potential buyer knows they are dealing with a real legitimate business that sells domains. It automatically makes the buyer believe that maybe domains really are worth what the seller is asking.

    It's like a half ass used car lot in the middle of town trying to sell cars compared to a used car lot like AutoNation, CarMax, or DriveTime. They sell the same inventory but the ones that clearly market themselves as real successful businesses sell much more cars then everyone else at a much higher profit. Impression sells everything in life.

    What is really amazing is that he is not afraid (of the buyers' backlash) when divulging the purchase prices...

    Most of the time they are judged on past sales history, current market value. But sales with domains like this is, well odd for a lack of term.

    But congrats to Mann ya got to give it to him!

    Personal opinions of course :-P

    Rarely you get appraisals where the appraiser actually analyzes and gives to the appraisee a good appraisal. It is free appraisal and there is that much you should expect.

    If you really need good appraisal then you ought to go through previous threads, list good appraisers and call them on your appraisal thread.
    No guarantee you will get an appraisal but if you do get a good appraisal then hey, its free and worth the try ;)

    Else, offer payment terms to those appraisers and they may just be motivated to give you one.

    Wrong
    I guess many domains are sold high bey recommendation
    Same @Sedo

    Some domains are sold high because stuff from Sedo recommend these names

    It,s is like ,,art,,

    Some pictures are sold very very but have no skills or whatever
    It is like ed hardy
    Madonna wear a shirt and everyone think this is special

    Connections sells

    As far you know which one to consider and which one to not, it is worth a try :)

    I suggest you analyze and appraise the domain yourself and then post request for an appraisal that will give you a clear difference of the legitimate appraisals and personal opinions.

    At the end of the day Mike (and team) know how to close deals (execute ABC). He has built a process (business) which allows the customer to quickly purchase a product. The price can be whatever but the true magic is closing the deal.

    The question is : "What can we lean and apply to close our deals?"
