    What should this sell for?

    I have a website that I made for my old web host (for free!), but I think he ran out of money and now all of his websites are dead. There is also a good chance that he committed suicide, he did talk about it in his blog before everything died. But anyway, I want to either sell or auction this website so that it doesn't go to waist.

    I really dont know what it is worth so I'm hoping you guys can give me a estimate.

    It is:
    • A full website
    • Fully XHTML 1.1 and CSS Valid
    • Not made with tables
    • Clean code
    • Only uses 2 images (1 is optional)
    • Because it only uses 2 images it is EXTREMELY customizable
    • Uses PHP
    • Works in all major browsers
    • Lowest resolution is 800x600
    Images of it are below:

    Why? The graphics are useless because they're brand specific. The rest is just a few orange and grey borders.

    Compared to all these (which are free)
    http://www.freecsstemplates.org/css-templates/

    If you look at the prices on sitepoint, even the lowest price have way more to them than this.

    Don't get my wrong, I'm not saying its crap. Just not something that someone would want to pay much money for.

    And the real value in any site is in its potential monetization. Thing liks number of unique visitors / page views per month will determine value more than design. Other factors include:

    Ad revenue
    Product / referral sales
    Membership base
    Email base
    Unique concept or functionality

    and similar

    Looking to sell an un-complete design will probably generate very little income for you.

    Maybe if you promised updates when needed, and put up some pictures of what it would look like if they customized it. I'd say maybe $20
