    Has anyone ever sold a domain during a fad?
    What were your expectations?
    Did you get what you wanted?
    Did you hold too long and lose out?

    I saw Clearthelist trending so I bought
    Clearthelist.com
    Clearing the lists.com

    10 days ago - it already has 500 visits and it’s growing. The movement on twitter is getting larger.

    I had a broker from Godaddy call last night and offer $300 - I declined

    I had a direct contact offer $300 and I declined- she owns a school related business that just raised 2 million in seed

    The problem is this is a charity movement for teachers so not much money
    I reached out to the person who started this and their partner site - crickets

    What did you do and any advice

    Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing the info. Maybe I'll invest in some fad domains too, and much later share my experience.

    What is "fad" or "a fad" ?

    It's an old word for "viral"
    Rich is dating himself! :xf.wink:

    Fad: an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived and without basis in the object's qualities; a craze.

    A fad is a craze, movement or interest that last a short time.

    Fad is like a trend. It comes and go.
    Domains remain - if not sold during the "shelf-life" of the fad.
    So you need to calculate the risk.

    I am in negotiations now for a good price- we will see.
    I was wondering if anyone didn’t sell and regretted it?
    Fake news.com comes to mind

    Yes, So you have to sell at the right time
    Not too fast because you might get higher offers, but not too late, because the trend will be over.
    I think you did the right thing uglydork, simply redirecting the domain to an offer page and waiting.
    I didn't sell or register any fad domain, not fast enough

    By the way, what are trending now, or have potentials of being the next fad?
