    I agree with you.

    I would counter with $200, which is more than reasonable considering "jobs in summer" doesn't even have a WT score and has less than 52,000 Google Results. After he counters back with another ridiculous price like $2,500, go up to $250 and then keep countering with $250 so he gets the message. I doubt he's had many offers in the past for that particular domain, so I don't think he'll want to lose this sale and will hopefully accept one of those $250 offers.

    Hope this helps.

    You're reading it wrong, the domain is JobsInSummer.com (as in "summer jobs").

    Terrible domain name - I wouldn't pay more than the registration fee!
    $3k would get you a nice 4 letter CVCV domain if you looked in the right places!

    After SummerJobs.com this is the next best domain. It's not a terrible name at all!

    I would actually prefer SummerJobs.net over JobsInSummer.com.

    The problem with JobsInSummer.com is that people don't seem to be searching for that phrase whereas "summer jobs" gets over 300 daily searches. Having said that, I also don't think it's worth regfee, and I would pay up to $250 for it if I wanted to develop it.

    a domain is worth for how much someonebody is willing to give for it.
    if i have a domain called jdjfdjdjdjs.com and people would pay a high price for it then why not cash in.I would just wait a while, and the longer time will pass the owner of the domain will get more deperate and lower the price

    He'd be crazy not to take that.

    I agree that unless you have some personal attachment to the phrase, this domain isn't worth more than regfee

    I would counter with a rude email telling him to p*ss off ;)

    Value of domains is largely linked to brandability, and the SEO value of that exact match phrase.

    According to google tools, "jobs in summer" gets a whole 36 searches a month.

    "summer jobs" gets 14,800. summerjobs.net is a holding page and I would be shocked if you couldnt get that for less than $1k. At the price that guy wants for his original domain, he's not even worth negotiating with. Too many idiots think a handful of crappy domain names they have registered are worth a fortune and they can retire off them. I do a lot of domain negotiating and the trick is to recognise these clowns and not waste any more time on them.

    I haven't checked the google tools for these myself but considering the
    difference in potential traffic I'd anchor the keyword "summer jobs" for
    jobsinsummer.com. It still could reach page 1 for that keyword as google
    would recognize jobsinsummer.com in the url (and MSN, Yahoo) I do
    think the sellers price is a bit high though, I'd check domail tools for intell
    about the owners domain stock. If you find that he/she owns say 20+ other
    domains (the higher the better) then you could haggle to get the buying
    price lowered.

    I've found this effective due to the fact that domain investors with large
    portfolios focus on tiring to sale (sometimes at any offer) to reduce their
    domain stock, whilst investors with a small portfolio tend to focus on the
    best price for their domain stock. Just an idea maybe you could entertain
    an offer of say $300 or less and quote that this is your budget limit "take
    it or leave it" (do this after your intell on seller) and see what happens.
    If you really want the dot com and are prepared to pay $xxx I'd also
    suggest registering jobsinsummer.net as back up. for $x :)
