$99 appraisal no longer required to list domains for high prices.
Domain name marketplace Sedo has removed its requirement to purchase an appraisal before listing a domain for over 49,999$/€/GBP.
Previously, sellers had to pay for an appraisal to confirm the value before listing a domain with a buy now or make offer (with asking price) above this threshold. This would also apply to domains with a fixed price that were included in SedoMLS.
Sellers could always reply to a make offer inquiry with a price above $50,000, but they couldn’t list that as the initial price without first getting an appraisal from Sedo. The company charges $99 for an appraisal.
Now, sellers can ask whatever they want without going through the time and expense of an appraisal.
Sedo is on a roll making seller-friendly changes. Earlier this year, it dropped its minimum commission on domain sales and lowered minimum sales amounts from $90 to $20, making it easier to sell low-priced domains. (I bought a domain on the platform for $30 last week.)
