Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Godaddy as they probably know..
Hmm, Well See to find that you need to be friendly with those who are new. Friendships will eventually give back..

It depends on your luck too. You can have 2 possibility prices from a don't-know-marketprice owner: Low price or HIGH price. Since they do not know the market price, they value their domain(s) "way too off". Why? Because they don't know the value and assume the most out of it. I have some prices from owners of some alright-domains in the 10+k prices. Silly? Yes very.
I've approached about 15 owners of what I would consider premium HostGator names, mostly poker, ringtone, and top-notch 1-word .cc names. I targetted specifically domains with no website on them. I got about 9 or 10 responses back. About 7 of those had a price. 2 of those prices I considered reasonable and something I'd pay if I had the money. I tried negotiating the price down on all of them, only got 1 to do it.
Everyone here that has commented on it has said I got a killer deal on it even though the true value of the name is up for much debate given it's .in extension. The deal was Poker.in for $2,650..
So yea, you can turn up good deals. Still, I wouldn't say that guy didn't know what his HostGator was worth. I would more or less say that he is probably less confident in the .in extension than I am and was willing to get solid money now than expect more money later. I rarely see sales where people simply don't know the value of their name and give it up for a small fraction of it's CURRENT worth. I do see a decent amount of sold names that, with some development and/or some time, would increase to at least 10-fold of what it sold for, but again, that's a matter of it's owners not wanting to put in the effort/money of developing the name and not believing it's worth holding onto as opposed to getting solid money now...
