    Was this a good price?

    foodgrinder.com - $2,050

    Was this a good price for the domain? Sure, it's a commercially orientated product name, but it doesn't have much of a search score and seems a little rich at 2k+.

    Or is it a case that a million dollar business could be built around the domain, similar to dropshipping rum cakes.

    sounds like a fair price to me
    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    Are rum cakes really so hot ?
    Or is it a pun on FS's speach at Seattle?

    I think it's a bit too high. I sold www.pinklimo.com for 400.00 and I think that was a fair price for both parties. But there again, it's just what will the market bare at that time of the year. I sold a commercial food grinder for 300.00 about 5 years ago to a guy that wanted it real bad. My Dad owned it and after he died I had to sell off his things. Plus it matters who the seller is and if your the buyer. Since then I have seen food grinders sell at local auctions for a lot less. Who knows really for sure but, what you are doing is the right thing to do, research, research and then research again.

    I second that.
    Your domains are never completely worthless. They can always be used as a bad example.

    safesys/Chad - Do you think it's a fair reseller or enduser price? It does sound like a fair price once dealt, but lets say if you have similar grade 2 word names, would you be happy to sell them for 2k, or would it be a steal to buy such names at this price. This was an auction on Snapnames, if this name was offered in DS for 2k, do you think there are ready buyers?

    sgopalam - Not so sure about the hotness of rum cakes, but yes, i was referencing what FS said he would do if he started out domaining today. Since FS was the buyer for this domain, it seems like he's actively practicing what he shares. I was just wondering if others would also be readily snapping up similar grade domains for a couple of grand each.
