    You said you've been paid $1,507 for the two domain names. But you're retaining the domain names. So it sounds like the payment was for services. What services are you offering?

    As for the TM idea, I've never found value in spending extra money to file for one. There wouldn't be a point since I'm not actively using my names to sell goods or services.

    Rich, I think you need a technical partner to help you with your thread posts. ;)

    You think:xf.wink: Between running a little business I've owned since 1987 (National 1099), juggling startups like 9Time, Discover Scotch and Broad Bay Realty, LLC., it's a wonder the domain business keeps rolling. Thank God I'm borderline ADD or I'd never keep up. As for PreQualify.realty, I'm meeting with a top mortgage broker and a friend who owns FetchaQuote.com this week to discuss online mortgage approvals.

    Finally, it's been about a month now since the .realty domains went on sale, and like Rocket Mortgage we're fueled and soon to launch(y)

    Go .Realty

    I guess we won't be discussing the "sale" of those two domain names? No worries. I'm glad you're bringing in some money. I just figured the other .realty investors might like to hear about the services you're offering in case they want to use the idea as an alternative to trying to actually sell the names.

    Yes, all those businesses of yours must really be cooking along! 9Time alone has been in the works for over a year now, right? I bet that website is going to be mind-blowing when it's ready.

    Good luck with the meeting! Hope you "make something happen".

    Do you know what it means to Eat Crow Joe? I already told you the business is buying the domains from me.....is that too hard for you to understand:xf.rolleyes: I know you're here to try and discredit me, but my agenda differs considerably from yours. Didn't I already tell you that most domains I create have a business model/plan behind them? You just might want to give it a rest Joe and concentrate on selling Nichols.realty.
    Good Luck!

    Actually you said the following:
    Which means there is a condition on the names being sold: your site going live.

    This is vague, so I was hoping for clarification:
    • What site do you mean?
    • Why does it have to go live before you receive payment?
    • Are you selling the names alone, or services as well?
    No intention to discredit at all. It's just that your sale disclosure was not clear.

    Don't have time to mess with you Joe....i know you're anxiously awaiting my every post. All you get with this one is that I just registered the domains Library.realty and it's .com compliment, LibraryRealty.com. I'm sure you'll never figure out why, but if you would meet me at my office (the library:xf.wink:) I'm sure you'll understand.

    Go .Realty

    Joe...thanks for rooting for me. In the last few hours I registered;

    Minority.realty
    Cultural.realty
    Ethnic.realty

    Followed by;

    CulturalRealty.com
    and
    EthnicRealty.com

    with all the contrived social unrest in America, these are perfect domains to promote housing to Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and American Indians. I would have liked to own Progressive.realty, but someone beat me to it.

    Go .Realty

    I feel like you may have missed the mark with those...

    "Minority" and "Ethnic" are buzz words that privileged white folks like us have used for a long time, but I'm not sure the communities you're targeting will identify positively with them.

    out of context as usual Joe. I'm sure you're aware of the target audience for these domains:xf.wink:

    Cloud9.realty - not vague at all Joe:xf.wink:

    "A term that is widely used in texting and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and elsewhere on the internet."

    Since starting this thread a little over a month ago I've personally added another 450 .realty names to my portfolio. All told about 14,000 names have been added to the .realty registrar since the .99 cent promo was started by Epik on September 26th. Pause.....so in the middle of keying this I planned to say this experience has been a whole lot like fishing where I've caught some citation's and some keepers. For those of you who don't know what a citation fish is, it's a trophy, an accolade, an award, a prize. Then i diverted my attention from keying this to see if Citation.Realty is available, and Voila! So I register it as well as CitationRealty.com that was available as well. Then for a little topping on my new trophy, I see where Estibot appraises my Citation.realty for $1,600.

    Getting back to the fishing analogy....like Forest Gump said, “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” This is what makes domaining so much fun for me.
    My domain boat is full with citations and keepers, and it's time now to prepare them to sell. Oh, like with real estate, you can try to sell your domains yourself, or you can get help from the likes of Epik etc. As for me, I plan on using every tool in the shed to sell my .realty and xxxxrealty.com domains.

    Finally, i know some of you have sent me encouraging messages, and I especially want to thank Joe Nichols of Nichols:xf.wink:Realty for all his help.

    Let the prep work begin.....

    Go .Realty

    Thanks for the shout out, Rich, but I just sold Nichols (dot) realty for $1. The dot realty roller coaster was fun while it lasted, but that 1% ROI was too tempting to pass up.

    Looking forward to hearing about all your sales too.

    LMAO....i knew you would get a kick out of my shout out:xf.smile: So why when I key Nichols.realty, it shows it's still for sale for $999:xf.rolleyes:

    Question for you Joe? Of the two domains I bought earlier today, which is the one most likely to sell?

    Citation.Realty
    or
    CitationRealty.com

    Maybe I should have registered BoGo.realty where you could buy one and get one free, but i see where someone already picked that up on 10/15/20. Was that you Joe?

    Go .Realty

    Looks like the current owner must have listed it at that price.

    Have you heard of WHOIS, Rich? It allows you to look up the details of a domain name, including the current owner. It looks like Anonymize.com owns Nichols.realty now.
    The better question might be if there's a decent chance for either of those names to sell.
    No, my foray into the .realty game is over now. I was thrilled to get out with my 1 cent profit, so I don't want to push my luck.

    I use WHOIS all the time Joe, but thanks for the tip.

    I feel real bad for you Joe so I'll throw you a bone....i just registered Accelerated.Realty, but Accelerate.realty is still available for .99 cents. And if you need a loan you might try Accelerated.loans:xf.wink:

    Ever caught a citation Joe:xf.grin:

    Go .Realty

    Marek...there are still a lot of good .Realty names to register. Just today I registered;

    BigBang.realty
    HomeLife.realty (Estibot valued at $1,100)
    LittleHouse.realty
    SilverStar.realty
    Touchdown.realty
    TopGun.realty

    As it turns out many of the short catchy two word domains are as memorable as the one word. I know you're a realtor so I'm sure you can appreciate how .realty fits. Remember the movie Top Gun? A local realtor/broker formerly a Naval Aviator F/A-18 Hornet went to Top Gun school, and I can't wait to see his reaction when he learns I own TopGun.realty. I also happen to own another dozen or so .realty names for neighborhoods/communities here in Virginia Beach the Top Gun realtor serves. Each community has a population over 5,000, and 2,000+ homes. One part of my strategy is to bundle community .realty domains to sell to big brokers for their individual realtor/agents.

    That's it for now, and Good Luck!

    Go .Realty

    Sounds good Rich :) I think you have full inventory now, ready to go.

    Price them at $999 each (IMO), and I am sure you will sell a few very quickly.
    Keeping fingers crossed!!!

    PS: will you be sending some information in PDF to prospects vie email/DMs, or are you going to call them? Realtors always pick up their phones and are friendly in most cases, so maybe calling is the best way!

    Thanks Marek....i plan on pricing all my .realty domains under a thousand dollars, and a sweet spot for me has been $875.
    Being a realtor yourself you know, "realtors always pick up their phones and are friendly in most cases". While I still plan on using email and some snail mail (post cards), personal contact will be my main focus. Fortunately I have a friend who has had more experience with telesales than I have, and he'll be working with me to develop the best strategies.

    Realtors are always looking for ways to get more listings and make more sales so if a new name like International.Realty or TopGun.Realty accomplishes that, a thousand dollars is a small price to pay.

    Anyway, opportunities like this don't come along very often so shame on me if I don't take advantage of it. Thanks for your input(y)
