Post your real estate domains here.

I have this one in .ca & .com
 
I used to have more but dropped or sold. For now I have;

bchomes.ca
developmentproperty.ca
homeskelowna.ca
hometraders.ca
rentalhomes.ca
saskhomes.ca
torontoapartments.ca
 
torontorealty .net (had one inquiry recently)

mostly focused on bc cities, but also some others. I like it if a town is at least 20k population.

in .ca, some are
propertyworld
westmounthomes
hudsonhomes
nelsonproperty
reginarealty
coquitlamhomes
cranbrookhomes
trailhomes (.com and .ca)
trailrealestate (.com and .ca)
rosslandhomes
revelstokehomes
woodstockhomes
sarniarealty
moosejawrealty
princetonhomes
swiftcurrentrealestate
owensoundhomes
oliverhomes
osoyooshomes

and many more, I guess I haven't given up on realtors, thinking ONE DAY they might come around to realizing the value in domains. lol
 
Off the top of my head:

ForSale
ShowHomes
LogHome
HomeBase
Homely
Homemakers
HomeOutlet
HomesByOwner

plus a bunch of various two word geo/realestate terms such as:

OkanaganRealty
NanaimoHomes
NelsonHomes
etc.etc.

The problem is 80% of realtors fail in their first year and I think that number climbs to 90+% within 5 years. 90% of r.e. sales go to 10% of the realtors. Something like 10,000 new realtors have come on board just in the last few years canada wide. And none of them believe enough in themselves to justify creating a memorable brand. And so it simply becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy for them.

I get more interest in my top domains from business people who are thinking much bigger than just being a realtor, as a real estate platform. I have at least 4 good .ca real estate sales that I can think of right now, averaging ~ $30K each. So although realtors are cheap AF, there is hope. The geo-targeted ones are definitely limited, but if its a big city, like Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, then it is still very valuable. The smaller places should still be worth a few $k though. But that's a big _should_.

Frankly, _EVERY_ business-worthy .ca should be worth at least $3K to anybody who wants to be in business. If you're not willing to drop that for your brand/domain name, that do yourself a favor and get a job instead, you're no entrepreneur. It is really shocking to me that some of the names posted in this thread aren't in use by a realtor right now. And I do understand that to many fledgling agents, $3K is still a large pill to swallow, but that's why I still offer them a lease at say $50-$60/mo on a $3K domain. I've even tried $25/mo just to see where the threshold is, and they still say no. And if they still refuse to consider that option, then I know for damn sure they are going to fail.
 
hey @rlm, were those 4 .ca real estate sales you mentioned the city+realestate or city+homes .ca variety, or were they more generic types like homesforsale or propertyagent .ca's?

I went on a tour this past summer in a heritage home, in a small town in BC, and the guide was a recent high school grad that was all jacked up about how hot the real estate market was, and that he was going to get his real estate license and make a fortune. Seemed like the type who had good energy and hustle and talking ability, but too young yet to be aware of the bust cycle that inevitably comes after the boom. And the other thing that caught me was he was more concerned about making big sales than about customer service, which is understandable at that age, but whether it's a real estate agent or used car salesman, most prospective customers get so turned off by the hard sales pitch.
 
I let a lot of the ones I had drop the only real estate domains i have now are.

RealestateAppraisal, RealestateBuySell, RealestateExam, and MarketListings



I let CowichanHomes and TricityHomes drop. I did some outbound to just about every realtor in those areas and nothing... One person inquired but then went silent.

Very nice names. I'm surprised nobody has made the right offer for ForSale yet.

None were geo related, but yes homesforsale was one of them. One was the singular of [notify]aactive[/notify]'s hometraders. That was sold to Trader corp, but I saw they were restructuring and it's interesting to see now that somehow some random dude owns it.... I wonder how that happened.

Lots of interest, just not the right offer.

I remember that hometrader sale...was a nice one for you.

Oh right, that reminds me I have PrivateIsland/PrivateIslands too... Anybody in the market for their own PrivateIsland? Is Schilling on here yet? haha.
 
.. :D hehe
 
I’ve had many offers from several realtors on this name, but none of them demonstrated that they understand the value of a great domain.

It’s all about matching the name to the best end user, not just sell.

I always object with “There could only be 1 person to be recognized as The Best Realtor in Canada!

So there's the problem, technically there's only one person in Canada you can sell it to, right?

Now if you had BadRealtor.ca, then your market size expands to about 25,000 realtors! :D

I owned two NameREALTOR domains and let both drop.

REALTOR is one of the most protected trademarks in the world. Most people don not know it is a made up word that is protected worldwide. Unless you are a realtor and have special permission they go after everyone that uses it. ONe complaint and you get a letter from them.

My advice is no REALTOR domain is worth the hassle.

Over the years I have posted lots of evidence about realtor.
 
And “realtor” is aggressively protected.
 
A few along with property financing domains. Too lazy to sort them out :[
The list is 5 years old and I may have sold a few or dropped some. Not really sure.
I no longer have a bulk checker anymore.

It looks like real estate domains are the most popular among the dn members.

Is there any other category of .ca domains that would be larger?
