    If I was selling a site, I would use https://flippa.com/‎ and provide income and traffic stats. Apparently, buyers like to see growth potential and a rising income trend for top dollar.

    Hi,

    I would love to. In this case the site made more money 2/3 years ago when I was working it. The last post I added to the site was on May 6, 2012 and the site is still earning around $30 mo with doing a thing at all. When I worked the site it did up to $400 best mo.

    Current income is all that matters at Flippa. That is what drives the price. You can mention former income, but almost everyone saw much higher income from their sites 2 or 3 years ago. Don't try to sell "potential" at Flippa. It turns off the serious buyers.

    If it is a really nice site, you can get a premium price, but as a general rule, the price will be somewhere around 10 to 12 times the average monthly current income.

    At one time eBay was a good alternative, but these days it is hard to sell either domains or sites on eBay unless you are giving them away.

    Current income is all that matters at Flippa.
    From a stagnant site for sure.

    But I learned from an enlightened-member post on another forum: the rising trend of income and potential to develop the site to build it up and/or better monetize the site is attractive to buyers.

    As always, the way you pitch your offer will have a big impact on the perceived value by potential purchasers.

    And remember, on flippa, their own employees will bid and bid.
    And at the end of the auction, their own employees will do one of two things:
    1. Pay what they bid
    2. Not pay what they bid

    This is how flippa shows so much action on many of their auctions there.

    Are you saying the the Flippa employees bid up the prices and then renege on paying? That does not add a lot of credibility to their auctions.

    Being reported more and more.

    They usually do this for their friends.

    But now and again will do it for any auction.

    When I bought my Jaguar car at auction I was bidding against the auctioneer, and when I went to pay I was told that it was below the reserve price, so had to pay the reserve price, sucker me.

    Hi,

    Thanks Guys I was hoping to sell my celebrity site. However I have way to much time and money into it to let it go for 10 to 12 times the average monthly current income. I can just sit on it for that. Maybe some where down the road I will have the time to make the site active again.
