I was recently approached by someone looking to sell me a couple of domain names that are 2 and 3 letters with .org and .net endings. I have not heard much about valuations for such sites and I wonder if anyone has any experience or has seen any recent auctions for them.

Would they be valuable, or does the .com take all the cake in the short domain name market?

2 and 3-letter domains in gTLDs are indeed valuable. End user value would of course depend on the letter combinations, but I would say minimum of $3000 for 2-letter .net/.org and minimum of mid $500 for 3-letter .net/.org.

If you've been randomly approached by someone looking to sell you 2 and 3-letter domains, check to make sure they're not stolen. 2 and 3-letter domains tend to be highly targeted for domain hijackings due to high value and liquidity.

You can get some idea of current prices at the 3character website.

Generally far less unless they are word domains. However, even word domains may not have value depending on what function the words serve in language: flawless (value) vs. flawlessly (little value).
