Who's sold a board?

It depends on the content of the board, what software it is (if it's a licensed/commercial product like IPB, etc) and how many members and posts it has. If it's a large board running IPB it can go for hundreds of thousands of dollars. it all depends on the size of the forum and what software is used to power it. I would imagine free forum softwares like phpBB and MyBB will earn you less money because they are free solutions and you don't include them into your price for the site.

Well, it's not the price you're willing to sell for, it's what a buyer is willing to give :)

 

I have sold 2 forums last year and was pretty pleased with the deal. One of them didn't fetch my desired price at first, so I waited for few months and tried again, geting more than I asked before. When setting a price customers look for traffic (and quality of it), content, forum activity, revenue.

I have bought a forum and sold it at a loss. I think I paid around $200-300 for it and it was a forum with a TON of threads, some traffic, only some bots and 1 or 2 members logged in at most times. The person that bought the forum from me resold it within months for $600 after making some tweaks. My loss, his gain. But I'm glad to be rid of it anyhow, I couldn't stand the design and I like to start from scratch!
