We (David and Peggy) are a couple of entrepreneurs who were fortunate enough to have registered about 500 domains circa 1992. That was before the domain name market went nuts so, unlike today we were still able to find a lot of good/valuable ones.
We’ve sold (and given away) a lot of domains over the years. We enjoy helping other entrepreneurs whenever and however we can.
That said, domain names have annual registration fees which we’ve been paying since all the way back to 1992. (We’re talking about several hundred thousand dollars which equals a cost to us of around $1,000 for each domain.)
So, unless it’s for a good cause or there’s some other very good reason for us to consider less, $1,000 U.S. is the starting point for even the least valuable domains.
Good luck in your acquisition and venture!
