And there's people replying to the thread. That's the more interesting thing I find.
Probably with the following:
Hey, I know you were looking for 3L and 4L's but how about some of these fantastic 7C's (hd2d1e4.com) for $400 each.
i see those kinds of examples on daily basis
member @johnn created a thread other day, seeking LLL net/org/ and .us
and one member couldn't wait to post if he wanted .biz too
It’s not even reseller pricing when certain buyers want to pay way less than you acquired it for, less than acquisition and renewal and way less than they could ever get it on the average reseller marketplace.
There is a number of people here who want to buy way below reseller pricing.
It’s one thing if you simply want to get rid of a name and are ok to basically give it away but that kind of buyer should NOT expect award winning names for their lame budget.
Domainers as a general rule are super cheap here. And yes some are rude. Lately I have had very polite interactions which is an improvement. There were some idiots in the summer reporting people for no reason.
I was thinking to suggest a new feature, "Premium WTB threads", with verified sellers and buyers. With minimum $50/domain. With no sharks, no tire-kickers and no time-wasters. Pros only. But I lack motivation, because I don't buy or sell too much here on NP. At any rate I could elaborate more if this feature is something that people would want to use.
In defense of the "up to 2% for 50k Estibot appraisal": there are domain names appraised by Estibot at over 50k that none of us would invest more than a few hundred $ in. I did pay over $1000 per, and also only a few hundred per. I do not expect any very short or one word .com among those offers, but there will be a few two-word domains that will end up being a win-win. That post closes on average one deal per month. Cheers - happy domaining.
WTB PEARL OF THE DAY
"I'm looking for a 3 characters domain .com .
Any combinaison :
I can be a LNL.com, NNL.com, NLN.com, NNN.com or LLL.com.
I'm willing to pay 300 usd, by paypal only.
PM me anytime."
Domainers like to talk about the need to 'educate' end users, but they could do with some education.
Most of them are seem to be newbs.. A little empathy can go a long way..
just wondering, from your perspective....has anything changed much in WTB section?
old post, but it's a good example
Domains wanted, The greatest comedy on the net.
WTB section problem is the word "wholesale". Even end-users are pretending that every name they are buying is for resale(when it's not so). And brandbucket names are all expected for $25(even good ones). We have made the whole section only wholesale, and we have not defined wholesale as, anything that you can make a good profit on. Someone once sold MrSmile.com to me for around $250 and i thought that was a monster deal.... and not surprisingly it sold for 6k on BB. I would have spent $500 to 1k on it if i could have afforded that.. at wholesale. Because the possible profit is what determines wholesale for me. Right now wholesale is defined as $25 and $250 if you're lucky to have a nice one word .com lol. There is no room for retail or even solid offers. Most domainers are not willing to spend on their own business name, so imagine anything else.
Even today, I saw a request that I had two great names for. I literally started to submit the names within their budget and I stopped right before I could click send. Though I could use some extra cash, I literally thought it would benefit me more, developing a site myself. Sometimes you can't let people value names for you. Lastly, if you do send a name valued way over their budget, but you send it close to their max budget...they think you probably did it simply because it's their max. When in reality, you're underselling by a mile..
Like wtf, you think $250 can buy launchup.com? nyam.com? gotbrands.com? please... At this point I don't even look at that section. That section is should be renamed to>.....
Something like....... what's the word for needing money desperately...so you need to sell fast even for ridiculously low prices???? I know it, but it just won't come to mind.
seems like nothing much has changed over the years.
One of these?
Separate names with a comma.
