haha - thanks for the info.
So, I have a would-be buyer for my .co domains. Actually they're pretty good domains and I feel like I'm already offering a pretty freaking good deal ... but he's insisting I need to go get "high quality" certified appraisals for these things. Ugh. That would cost hundreds of dollars, I'm sure.
In my experience, domain appraisals are BS. Its inherently a speciulative market; not real estate! And to webworks point, clearly some people are strongly biased for/against certain extensions ... and how the heck will that factor into any "certified appraisal"? Besides, .CO is so new, how could it be anything but a big guess? I feel like this guy is going to make me spend hundreds of dollars to get some bs document based on nothing that is a real craps shoot to having any actual meaning anyway. I think he's a newbie broker just trying to do homework, but I feel like he's causing undo issues to make up for a lack of confidence or awareness of the marketplace.
Any thoughts or suggestions how to proceed?
