    So if it generates around 145.000$ per year, the price will be 3x 145000?

    It's tends to be just 1 years worth for websites although it is 3 years worth in most other businesses.

    Exactly. And also any buyer will take into consideration if revenue and traffic are on the decline. Just because the revenue for a year works out at $100,000 doesn't mean it's worth that. If the monthly revenue has dropped from $30,000/month in the first two months to $3,300 in the last ten then it would greatly impact the value.

    Also you never know when you could get slapped, even the best of research could miss something that moves you from page 1 to page 10 immediately after the sale, personally I would never buy a site, too risky.

    buy a site with establishe traffic and also income will be a shortcut, that always interested for me, but only with low budget target and real orientation in my mind

    I've had a browse on the marketplace here and on Flippa and other sites and 99% of the sites for sale I could put together myself with minimal fuss with no investment, sure it might take me a year or so to really get it going but I'm only risking my time rather than my money.

    I'm also pretty sure I know what site the original poster is interested in selling and no offense but I wouldn't touch it for various reasons I won't post unless he's happy to talk about it himself.

    so its all about a choice, like you said, 2 things that we face in this case (established site take over) are money and time, just choose 1 from 2, if you choose time you sacrifice your money and also if you choose money you sacrifice your time, so this would be take it or leave it, cmiiw
