Forum Two
Genre - Game Based (Mobile, Tablet, Facebook)

Reason for sale? I just dont have the time to look after and grow these two forums any longer.

Any help greatly appreciated.

The answer is they are worth however much you are willing to part with them -vs- how much someone is willing to pay for them.

If you can manage it, it's always nice to have a continued revenue after the sale... ie... X new owner agrees that even after the sale, for Y time, they will continue to promote your ads, allowing you to collect revenue and will not compete or remove said revenue until such time has expired.

These are the deals I like to do for example.
