How to Choose a Real Estate Domain Name….

Buy the Best name you can afford. With Over 90% of all buyers and sellers staring their search online, a great Real Estate Domain Name is a Must! Remember, the value you Luxury Property Domains, Luxury Real Estate Domains, Luxury Marketing, Luxury Branding,provide flows through your Domain name. And, if you sell Luxury Homes, It’s time to upgrade to a Luxury Domain name.

Joe Salcedo at Inman/Next recently wrote a good piece about how to pick a real estate domain name.. Check out the article here

Here are a few of tips:

  • Location, Location, Location — Your site’s domain is your location on the Internet. Put thought and a serious budget toward your domain name before building anything (website). You will save hundreds of hours  and thousands of dollars in marketing costs.
  • Avoid branded names. (Unless you have a a six-figure marketing budget.)
  • Buy generic names that the general public would be attracted to. (ex: Luxury + Home / Property + Location, etc.) Do not attach your name to your domain.
  • Think keywords; This means what you would search for in google if you didn’t know your personal or company name…ex: I want to see  Luxury Homes Aspen so that is what I would enter into a search engine. Matching Domain = LuxuryHomesAspen.com
  • Always buy .com
  • If the domain you like is available for registration price at GoDaddy, think very hard before you buy. This is a bad sign. You are not saving money by getting a domain at register price. Either the name has limited potential traffic or you’re acquiring a misspelling.

A good domain can make you a trusted source  Ex; LuxuryPropertyNewYork.com = trust & clicks due to the relevance, quality & resonance of the Domain Name.

Top Places to Buy aftermarket Domain Names:

  • DomainNameSales.com has some of the most premium inventory of aftermarket Domains
  • LuxuryPropertyDomains.com — for all things “Luxury.” Luxury Homes, Luxury Properties, Luxury Property Domains…
  •  RealEstateDirectory.com  has an extensive portfolio of geo-targeted Real Estate Domains names. They don’t sell often but  for $xx,xxx – $xxx,xxx you might be able to work something out.
  • Sedo.com
  • Afternic.com

And remember what Fred Wilson, VC said a couple of years ago: “Be prepared to pay up for a good domain. It is very unlikely that you’ll find a good domain name these days for less than $10k”

Lifetime Value of Luxury Real Estate Clients — $500k+

Luxury Property Domains , Real Estate Domain Names, Luxury Branding, Exlusive Domain Properties,The resources you use to generate leads and satisfy your luxury clients is an investment in the lifetime value your business. Here’s an example of the lifetime value of a Luxury Real Estate client….

Assume that the average sales price of the luxury home sale – either as a referral or a direct sale -is  $2 million. Assume that the average commission of on a sale like this is $27,000 (after splits, etc.)  Let’s also assume that the number of times this client is going to buy or sell from you over the next 10 years is 2. And let’s also assume that this client is going to give you 2 referrals per year. That’s about $59,000 per year in commissions from this one client. At the end of 10 years, this person is going to refer $594,000 worth of business in commissions. Now, imagine if this client were sending you two, three, or four deals a year? How can you grow your referral business?   (Read more here &/or buy Jack Cotton’s best-selling book, Selling Luxury Homes.)

You can clearly see that whatever resources you use to generate leads and satisfy your luxury clients is an investment in the lifetime value your business. How are you marketing and developing your luxury brand to cater exclusively to luxury buyers and sellers? As the above example shows, paying to find. reach and acquire the right customers is of vital importance to your business.  Start with your domain name… Buy a Clear, Descriptive, Category-defining Luxury Property Domain Name. What’s the value of a click if it brings you a luxury home buyer?

Joe Salcedo of Chase Int’l said “…one thing I learned that I wish I knew when I started: invest in the best domain you can find. It’s worth it. It’s market defining. It’s instant respect. And because a successful real estate site is achieved through great content and  marketing it, a solid domain name can cut your marketing expenses by half.”  –

Forget CPC and CTR: It’s Lifetime Customer Value That Matters Most
If we can identify channels, campaigns, media or propositions that deliver “better than average” customers we can begin to see how much more profitable they are and decide how much more we should be spending on them.

In fact whatever resources you use to generate leads and satisfy clients is an investment in the lifetime value of clients and your business. Read more at the FragerFactor... 

Value of Clients — More Than One Commission

At some point, buyers will become sellers. And sellers often have other properties they would like to sell. Regardless of whether they are buyers or sellers, new clients can become repeat clients.

In every business, including real estate, referrals represent the most significant source of new business.

Whatever resources you put into developing and maintaining referral systems are investments in the lifetime value of clients. In fact, whatever resources you use to generate leads and satisfy clients are similar investments. Read more

Why $10,000 For A Domain Name Is Still Cheap

Luxury Property Domains logo, Real Estate Domain Names, Luxury Branding, Exlusive Domain Properties,Domain names continue to rise in value. Here are a few articles about domain advice and pricing guidelines….

Why $10,000 For A Domain Name Is Still Cheap

Domain names are now an integral part of any business. Whether the use is primarily for email, a company website, or part of a marketing campaign anyone starting a business must secure a domain name.

“The difference between a domain name and other marketing expenses however is you are acquiring a presence which help future customers define you, not leasing one.

Owning a premium domain has become expensive with the average price of a domain name hovering around anywhere between $5,000 and $20,000 however how expensive is this?”

The real question is not how much a domain name costs but how much value the right domain name can bring to your business…….Read more at .BusinessInsider.com

Successful VC Advises: Spend Up to $50k on a Domain Name

“We’ve noticed the average price of a good domain has risen fairly dramatically in the past year. We used to advise companies to spend $10k or less on a domain, then we upped that recommendation to $25k. We recently upped it again to $50k.”  –Fred Wilson , VC  2011

How much should I pay for a Real Estate Domain name?

Remember, Florida Realtor Tim Ryans’ advice: “A great website with the exact match domain name will give you, as a listing agent, INSTANT credibility. It is as though you are the expert and you are a 4th generation listing agent in that community”. His formula for how much to spend on an exact match real estate domain name can be found here.
So, how much should I pay for a really good domain? Obviously it varies: How many homes in the area, what is the turnover, what is the median sales price, what is my commission? …..but I would say it is worth between $30,000-$50,000.

Valuable Asset: ParkCityRealEstate.com sells for $60k 

Rob Grant owns the world’s largest collection of geo-targeted .com real estate domains. He sold ParkCityRealEstate.com to EW Partners of Park City, Utah for $60,000 in 2011.  Grant said, “”We rarely sell any of our valuable geo-targeted real estate domains unless the offers are significant and reflect the true value of these names. ParkCityRealEstate.com was a domain that I originally hand registered back in the November 1996. This is a great example of how valuable these real estate .com domains have become over the years as a unique asset class – despite ongoing recessions and our current global financial crisis. Frankly, there’s no better investment out there.”  Read more about Rob’s real estate domains at RealEstateDirectory.com.

How to Avoid Dot-Com Disasters
The first tip is to invest in your domain name as you would secure a primary location for a storefront.  Location, Location, Location!  Always .com and buy the best you can afford. Generic, descriptive and memorable adjectives make great website domains. Skip dashes, long names, broken language and made-up terms. “Don’t cut corners with your online identity,” says Frank Schilling, founder of DomainNameSales.com and an Internet entrepreneur. “A better domain name will lower your lifetime marketing costs.”
