    Hi Fam,

    Buying Good Domains is HARDER than Selling Good Domains!

    Do you guys agree?

    Thanks
    MaX

    🌻 It depends on the price. Buying good domains at a low price is as hard as selling good domains at a high price.

    I think selling is always harder, so would answer no.

    However, the better job you do buying, will help the selling be easier.:xf.smile:

    I like researching and buying way more than selling, and that is a problem. I suspect I am not alone in that.:xf.grin:

    Every brandable needs to be a dictionary word?
    Reason I added brandable..
    Nonetheless, we all have taste for what is brandable

    Since you didnt mention what TLD, i think, my names Sport.House , Ask.Capital, Extreme.World are worth $5k and above each.

    I agree with Bob, “However, the better job you do buying, will help the selling be easier.”

    I ain't a .com fanatic.

    I think if it was Sports.Center you could have asked for $5k to an end user...I am a reseller 😁

    Have you tried a request with a very clearly specified set of descriptions. That is TLD, must be dictionary word, perhaps some popularity measure, length, positive. I have never tried to buy a $5000 name but would be surprised if you do not get goid replies, but maybe you have tried that already.

    The best way to get a great name for that is to seek out a name no longer in active use in some end user hands. But I agree that is hard work.

    Bob

    PS There are often some nice names in auction promoted in the paid featured along with NameBio listings. You might also check the MakeOffer section here.

    No specific TLD.

    Dictionary word/s or combo word for .com or dictionary word/s for .co or dictionary tech word for .io or dictionary word/s for popular cctlds, even ngtld that look/sound/feel good

    I dont see much difference in those two new tld. Sport.house has good traffic coming. Has been just few months that I acquired them. My first new tlds, will wait for good offers.

    Another way to try, if active on social media like Twitter, is to ask show me your best available name at $xk. When people like Rick S does it he gets many responses. He usually gives a one day limit. Some of the bloggers also do it from time to time.

    It might work even better in request thread at NamePros. Allow each person to only submit their two best, with your criteria.

    I don't think this thread is right place to get specific suggestions. Not even sure if by NamePros rules we are strictly speaking allowed here to suggest names for possible purchase.

    Best wishes,

    Bob

    It's a general discussion.

    People are commenting if there's some budget good names are readily available, which ain't true imo.

    So, mentioned some figure I am willing to spend for good names to up the ante!

    Anyone, think having to good names can dm me instead of posting on this thread 🙂
