    I Need Advice on a Six-Figure Sale

    After contacting a celebrity with a domain name valued at $250,000, the famous potential buyer responded with a $100,000 offer. Would you have accepted the offer at this point? This investor opted to counter with a $175,000 asking price.

    However, the potential buyer hasn't responded to this counter offer. What should this domain investor do? Should they wait to hear from the potential buyer?
