    I think this can be one of the points. Talking to the buyer can clarify a lot of things in just one call, and mainly prevent to lose that buyer due to a lack of dialogue.

    You make more money on the buy IMO.

    I have made steady sales for more than a decade, but recently I have had much larger profits on paper as there are fewer reinvestment opportunities.

    Yes. I certainly did make money. Got into full-time domaining around August 2018.

    Total approx dollar volume of sold domains in 2019 = $35,000+

    Very much in the green after deducting the commissions and covering my renewals upto end of March 2020, and any other business expenses.

    Eagerly looking forward to scale it up in 2020.

    Total revenue for me this year is just over $82,450. About half of that was invested back in my portfolio and on renewals. It's been my most profitable year as a domain name investor since I started 7 years ago. Wishing everyone a profitable 2020.

    $4,000+ net profit this year from a portfolio of 121 domains.
    75% - Afternic BIN
    25% - Outbound

    1st half of the year was very good for me, second half almost dead (only one sale in October).

    Unfortunately very little money is being made with parking in the industry these days. Only a small fraction of domains make more than a couple of dollars a year.

    The money I was referring to was from selling my domains.

    The money I make at NameCult and my lists here at NamePros is affiliate commissions .. not quite the same thing as parking.

    I suggest you take a look here to get more specific answers:

    In August I discovered namepros & went on a spree registering about 100 .coms till date. It’s been a learning curve. I’ve made my money back with a $1,999 sale in December which I didn’t expect..

    Actually I was going to price it at $250, but decided to make it $1,999 and it sold after 1 month..
