Pricing of Portfolio

If looking to sell a portfolio of 100+ domains, what strategies or benchmarks do you use for pricing? Knowing that in many cases there many throwaways in amongst some gems, just curious as to how you set price for the whole lot.

Re: Pricing of Portfolio

Keep it simple, let the market decide.  Ask if anyone is interested, get their emails, send them your portfolio, then take offers.

Since your portfolio is small - you might also consider taking offers on individual domains.  Sometimes the sum is actually less than its parts. As TBR proves each week, we all see value in different types of domains.

Re: Pricing of Portfolio

I tried to see what interest was out there for @150 of my .ca's mediocre to good domains, and there was very little. I think if your trying to sell a "Portfolio" of .ca's they would have to be really good names, names that a domainer is willing to sit on for 10years or more to wait for a great offer( 5 + figure ).

As for a mediocre portfolio like mine it's hard to sell domains that the buyer my have to sit on for an extended length of time, for a domain that might get $2,500- $5k to an end user, the work, hold time, and dealing with $25 offers sucks.

I like rlm's idea of putting a spread sheet together, and any domain info, ie registrar, age, any traffic, and any offers that the domain has received. I know most domainer's can do their own research on domains but on a big list it's easier to just glance over the list and pick out potentially valuable domains. The biggest hurdle is finding people to have a look at the list.

My biggest problem is that when I buy a domain, I can see a end use and become too attached to the domain and hold the domain, turn down smaller offers only to let it drop a few years later.

Where do you list your domains for sale?

- epik, efty, sedo, afternic, godaddy, dan.com?

this is my limited view of the .ca market.

This is great advice RLM. Appreciate it. I think that in the case of my portfolio the sum might actually be less than its parts.

Thanks Dan. I think our portfolios are similar and I can certainly identify with becoming too attached to the domain. It has at times clouded my perception of pricing particularly on those B level domains where there is some value but not premium value. I list my domains on multiple platforms, Uni, Afternic, GoDaddy, Dan, and Sedo. Have also used Epik and Efty in the past.
