just wanted to share that i just sold a hand registered a domain for 555$
I list these domains with a Bin price in the range of 500 -1500$
I registered this domain in January for 8.37$, when he was dropped.
The domain is a 12 letters single word domain, french word.
I have good success with the sales in the range of 500 -1200$
I acquire these domains at expired auctions or closeouts, so the cost is anything from 10$ to 100$.
A few of them get dropped, but usually you get the good ones at expiring auctions or closeout.
based on my experience , i had more sales under 1000$ than above 1000$
I have a portfolio of 1200+domains that I started 18 months ago,
the sales covered the renew for the last 6 months, with some good profits
seem that it is easier to have an impulsive buyer go for it in the 500-800$ range
my sales became more regular after i reduced the BIN prices on lots of my domains.
these last 4 months , i had more sales with brandables and niche related domains
I still list a few domains without a BIN price, these are high value domain

hope it help you in your Domaining venture,
