    How could I express, in English, the sentence below:

    "Io credo che, considerando le caratteristiche dell'oggetto, si possa proporre bene"

    I am aware that it sounds a bit "slang" because the real meaning is that, due to this item's features, I think possible to place it in the market and sell it at a considerable price.

    My try:
    "I believe that, due to its features, we could well offer it"
    but I am not sure that "offer" is the right choice.

    Thank you.

    It's appealing.

    " ... , we could ask a good price for it"
    " ... , it could fetch a good price"

    Is that what you are after ??

    " ... , we could well offer it" sounds as if you are still considering the possibility of placing it on the market, and you will probably ("might well") do so, but the decision is not yet made.

    Thank you Paul and Baldpate!
    I think I'll choose "it could fetch a good price".
    Thank you again, guys.
