Default domain name selling

i have a few domain names i either no longer use or have inherited and was thinking of trying to sell them rather than just let them lapse. Any one done this and can enlighten me?

Those 'automatic appraisal' sites are worthless. I've sold a few on regular sites usually for $100 a piece.

tdnam.com and sedo.com. I think even on digitalpoint forums, some users will do manual appraisals.

My son has bought and sold on the site that is now http://flippa.com/

It has some good resources associated with it.

Generally sites that are developed and can show an income/traffic history or Google rankings do best. Although short, one word and keyword-based names are alos in demand.

It all depends on the name. Are you at a position to disclose?
