[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1] [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]As a seller you should provide me with an appraisal first. This is a reasonable practice.

I've found not all the appraisals are accurate. So I accept real manual appraisals from trusted sources only.

I don't trust $14-$20 services. Nobody will do a research for $14. We need a real manual service.

[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]As to the most known brands: the more orders the company gets, the less time they can afford to spend on each appraisal.

I wanted to use but looks like this company has a bad reputation.

I also considered, but now it's clear their service is not reliable enough.
Just read this:
"Afternic Appraisals really SUCK!!!"
Afternic Appraisals really SUCK!!! - DiscussNames
"Capsule Review: After lots of complaints, Afternic is no longer a recommended service. We will re-review the service in the near future."

I was told about manual research service from It costs - $200/hour.

Many experienced sellers suggested us as a trustworth manual service. They charge about 40 eur name not per hour. We've read only positive comments about them. And I have my own positive experience with this company and their support. [/SIZE]

[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1] Unfortunately , Sedo is not acceptable as an appraiser because your names
are listed with them and they are not independent.

Last but not least, they are interested in earning 10% commission on every
sale. I need appraisals from a company
which is not interested in selling your domains.

dont fall for these cheap marketing tricks from name-investors , I firmly believe that they are the fraudulent guys , i also received some offers worth of 30 K + USD for some of the names owned by me and try to lure me to spend some bucks, I simply ignored them after goggling about their fraudulent behaviour.

After i replied

Can you accept 25,000 USD?

I have a 100,000 USD budget for 10-15 domain names. Have you had your domain names evaluated in the past? Without a valuation certificate we cannot be sure in the sale price. Moreover, my accountant and tax services always ask for valaution certificates :). On the other side, it's very important for me in terms of reselling too. Of course, we must engage a valuation company with a REAL manual service. So I will only accept valuations from independent sources I and my accountant trust.

To avoid mistakes I asked domain experts about reputable appraisal companies. Please check this blog with suggestions from other sellers and buyers:
Domain Talk

If, for example, the valuation comes higher you can adjust your asking price accordingly. It will be fair. I also hope you can give me 12% - 15% discount.

After you send me the valuation via email (usually it takes 1-2 days to obtain it) we'll continue our negotiations. Do you sell domain with a web site or just the name? Domain without content is ok with me. Web site is not necessary.

What is your preferred payment method:, International wire transfer, or something else?

Hope we can come to an agreement fast.

Looking forward to your reply.
