I was offered $500 for a name on GD. I countered at $2500. He, presumably, countered back at $750. I was considering the send it to auction option. I considered the counter back option. I did have it listed on my @toughdomains account for $1975 BIN, which I did edit prior to my counter. I decided that although I like the name a lot, I could use the money more today than waiting it out. It was a name I liked enough for the longhaul to keep for years to come. However, I decided to accept the offer and move on to another name. I did think their initial offer of $500 suggested they were interested a bit more than kicking tires. However, I think it could have been another domain investor that may have it ready to go for an end user. One bird in hand is better than two in the bush! I can use the money for other projects. And ultimately in life I could use the money today. I do think left money on the table, but I thought the risk of no deal was far scarier than leaving money on the table. I accepted the $750, and the extra $250 covered my GD fees and a little something extra Once the deal is final and I have the money Ill share the domain name!
