What are the factors we should consider when you do the appraisal for the domain.
Here is some of my thoughts.
1. Short letter
2. User Friendly names
3. Online marketing names
can you give any other tips?

Easy to remember?
That always helps. Good TLD? That is a plus to. I wouldnt buy a name with a bad TLD. Make sure the other TLDs are free (at least the main one (.com)).Seeksadmin - For all your administration and security needs.

I got following info from DomainIQ.com. It is very useful.
If you are serious about the domain name market, you have probably noticed that everyone and his brother are calling themselves domain appraisers these days. This makes it difficult to know what the best options are. You can't judge by the the website itself. Almost anyone can design a professional looking website.The following are some important things to consider when selecting a domain name appraiser or domain appraisal company.
Actual Domain Sales Experience
It is important that the domain appraisal company you choose has it's own in-house sales data available for use in the valuation. Comparable sales data means the difference between a guess and a real appraisal. The more sales data, the better.
Domain Market and Appraisal Research Experience
Again, the ideal domain appraiser has extensive experience in the domain market and knowledge of specific industry data relative to the industry that your domain name relates to. Appraisals should be based on this knowledge, research and a compilation of an extensive amount of sales data acquired while in business in the secondary domain market.
Domain Appraisal Companies: Size and Staffing
This is an extremely important part of selecting an appraiser. You have probably noticed that most domain appraisal companies guarantee to have your domain appraisal finished within a few days or less. But is the appraisal company well staffed and large enough to perform a large number of thoroughly researched appraisals within the time alotted? It is not uncommon for a professional domain appraiser to receive hundreds of appraisal requests per day. Without appropriate staffing, your appraisal could be nothing more than an assembly line "quickie".
Regardless of which domain appraiser you choose, please take the time to carefully evaluate the quality and thoroughness of the services you are about to pay for. Always remember that an appraisal is worth the respect it generates in a perspective buyer. If a buyer takes a few minutes to look for these qualifications on the appraiser's website and does not find them; the appraisal may have no value at all. We won't be listing domain appraisers who, in our estimation, do not meet the preceding requirements.

I look at the following:
- Extension (.com, .net and .org are the best imo)
- Lenght (don't go above 10 characters if possible)
- alphanumeric (no "-", also no numbers if possible)
- Word(s) are dictionnary words?
- Domain is easy to remember?
I also think the value of the domain(s) goes up if you have more than one extension, for example if you have something.com and also something.net + something.org, the total value of the domains goes up.For reliable shared and reseller hosting, visit RadixHosting.
