    I am looking to make an offer on a domain name that I think is very good, has good traffic even though the site is waaaay out of date, not being updated or developed...but of course, has the good traffic and name going for it.
    It would be like buying chicago.com, or houston.com for example~~~any thoughts on a fair price? The current site would be totally scrapped...traffic and name are the desireables here.

    Not sure about the price, but if you scrap the whole site, the traffic may go away...

    Point taken...will have to evaluate what to keep, but all is dependent on if owner is willing to part with it. I see little of value on site...it seems the traffic must be coming from the fact that if someone was looking for houston.org they may enter houston.com for example since the dot com is the most popular suffix...
    Anyway, once I show interest the owner may decide they need to do further development because there is an interest in it...We'll see what happens.

    The value is in the eye of the beholder so to speak. I own a five letter .com which is also the capitol city of a country. To me the domain is worth a million dollars. Unfortunately the best offer I have had is $100,000.
