u want to buy a website which is guaranteed to be making money ? no one in their right mind will sell you a profitable money making site unless you are willing to pay through your teeth for it. you may get a good buy if the site is either very small or not doing very well.

my site generates around 2k a month, and i would surely be asking at least 1 million for a buy-out. why ? say my site has a growth of 20% (which is pretty small for websites), it will be generating 15k after 12 months and 132k after 24 months. see calculations below.

Month Income Accumulated
1 2 2
2 2 4
3 3 7
4 3 11
5 4 15
6 5 20
7 6 26
8 7 33
9 9 42
10 10 52
11 12 64
12 15 79
13 18 97
14 21 118
15 26 144
16 31 175
17 37 212
18 44 256
19 53 309
20 64 373

If you can get $1 million for your site then great for you. Not many sites can generate as much as yours does. If you are making alot of money with your site, i don't want to buy it from you. I preferred you to keep it and make even more money. But what i'm asking is if you do have a profitable site* and would like to sell it because 1) you don't want it no more because of time constraint 2) i have bigger and better things to do 3) i need money right now 4) whatever, then let me know, i might be interested. I'm looking for a bargain not to steal anything away from other website owners.

*profitable site - income - total expenses > 0, a penny earn is still a profitable site!

20% compound monthly revenue growth is absolutely stratospheric for a medium-large property. You may or may not be able to sustain that level of growth, but there wouldn't be many buyers in the market willing to value a property according to those assumptions. The days in which the 'new economy' represented infinite growth potential and PE ratios of 100+ are merely a memory.

For a site generating $2K revenue a month, based upon original intellectual property, I would pay no more than $30K. Failing to make one's capital back in two years after clocking up growth as incredible as that proposed would be a disappointment to any investor.

Czar's valuation seems pretty close to home, I've got a site generating about $2,000 a month in revenue and everyone I talk to about a sale seems to come to the $30-40k range. It's a tough decision to sell, I see a lot of growth potential that buyers of course can't see, and why would I not just wait a year or two to make that money, then sell it then, or not sell it at all?

I would be interest in finding out how much money you will be generating in 6 months, a year and two years.

I certainly hope that you do make that kind of money, but I seriously doubt it is achievable if we are talking about the site on your signature.
