    wow, is it too high that some guys will though that's waste of money. With $700k you can buy many many premium domains with related that domain or in the furniture market. just though so.

    Keyword product names are very valuable.

    "Currently we sell yearly $7,000,000 of furniture through BedroomFurniture.co.uk from a standing start in 2012 with only the domain name and no prior business or knowledge in this sector. We paid $60,000 for the name", the buyer said.

    Interestingly, BedroomFurniture.co.uk is #30 on UK Google for "bedroom furniture".

    That's a general keyword and it's not worth much, people usually search for specific keywords such as "bedroom furniture", "bathroom furniture", "kitchen furniture",...or sth like that, I though so.

    $700,000 is not much to you?

    The domain is not worth for that price, that's why I said $700,000 is too high for that name.

    A buyer paid that much so the domain is worth that amount.

    But it's what others are willing to pay that ultimately matters.

    Surprising. But I don't think it's so much valuable.

    It's a really nice name and furniture is a big business and we all have them in our houses and everyone knows the name.

    A domain worth as much as the right buyer is capable to pay. There is no such thing as too much and too expensive. :)
