    No one will ever turn down a nice offer. Except it's not so nice

    I dropped apple.com back in '98, they offered me a small sum of 157k back then. Turned it down. Dropped the domain, and now you know the rest of the story. (thx Paul Harvey) lol.

    My friend hand regged a very brandable domain for a project and invested almost $3000 into it..

    While the project was under development, he got a price inquiry. We reseached and found out that the client was one of the kingpin in the adult industry and invested good amount in 15-20 domains. We asked $67000

    Within a day he countered with $34000.
    Our next offer was $59000.

    He said $34000 was his max. We turned it down.

    Can't reveal the name here as we would give it a last try.

    Just like I turned down a billion dollar offer for Microsoft.com last year. I'm from the UK though so dollars just aren't the right fit for me.

    Hate to think of the figures I've turned down over the years ...But, equally sold a few in the tens of thousands that probably would struggle to get a single thousand today.

    My Bugbear is the number of domains (.coms) I've sold over the years that constantly appear on TV adverts, around half-a-dozen of them are still live adverts. Can hardly get through a day without seeing at least one I've sold - Wouldn't mind but they all went to "then" anonymous purchasers at around 1 to 2k. And we are referring to the big boys toys.

    All touch technology stuff, that I went into in 1999/2000 as a good future market prediction

    Have an 11k offer today, about to turn it down.

    Biggest I have turned down was about 35k. Ended up with an agreement at 88k and then the buyer went cold after starting escrow, after assuring me multiple times they would send payment even while in escrow. And it was a Chinese law firm. 4L.com matched the 4 names of the law partners.

    That's reasonable, I even
    don't get offers below 1,000.00 USD / EUR / GBP * because all my domains do have at least this or a higher amount as minimum bid so no one can even make an offer below that amount.

    * At least not via SEDO.

    I had a good old domain I meant to develop for about 5 years. I was actually getting offers from GoDaddy's buying service, but I didn't have the phone operating. Got a new phone - first call was GoDaddy offering $2k for that ol' HVAC domain! I'd have taken less, but I didn't know they were offering, so I'd turned them down by default …

    So we were having couple of drinks with a friend of mine. He offered me $2 bn for google.com and I respectfully declined.

    Of course, I don't own google.com, but he doesn't have $2 bn either, so all is fair and square.

    PS on topic, regularly turn down low 5 figure offers on e/l/i/x/.com
