Hello,
I have sent outbound email to 15 companies and after 20 min i received a reply from one company and he replied me:
"whats your price for this domain"?
And my reply was:
"price is only $1880"
After 10 hours he replied me:
"Okay thank you i will check this possibility with my partner."

Tell me he is looking serious?
His company using same name with hypnated with .net extension but i have .co.
Thanks

Tough situation... I have had few similar experiences... and I can tell what happened to me :) When prospect replied like the one you contacted chances are small that he will contact you again. You have two options after awhile. You can contact him again and show that you really want to sell that domain which will decrease domains value in his eyes, or sit and wait for his call which will probably never happened. In both situations you can make mistake. That's viewpoint from my personal experiences :)

I've had similar replies only to receive "best we can do is $80" (after my $500 offer) or never hear again afterwards.
 
You got a reply, thats great!
Reasonable price. Be patient, not all leads pan out but some do.
Hopefully yours will(y)

Wait for atleast 2 days atleast then contact him again if you don't get reply!

He may need sometime to discuss with his partner. So if you send email again in short time, they may think that you are too desperate to sell that domain.

Hope for the best!

"Okay thank you i will check this possibility with my partner."

Quite often a polite way of saying "It really isn't on our agenda or priority list" Thanks for the contact, we will keep it in mind IF we go looking for a new web identity

OR

hmm, if it was $100 we could just take it from Petty-Cash

His company using same name with hypnated with .net extension but i have .co

Hence the problem..... it is a .co

Running 5 companies myself and even being a domainer I would hesitate to use a .co in business.
The odds of a mistake to .com is just too great, especially when it comes to lost emails where people accidentally put an " m " on the end.

If I was running a .net for my business I would not switch to a .co which saddens me to say as a domainer.

I would seek out my country code or make up a new .com if necessary.

Hello,

You sent out 15 and got a response from one with a few minutes...Impressive stats!!

1/15 email is way better than mine..including direct message on Linkedin!

Hope the sale goes through!

I have sold my two domains of .co via outbound under $500.
.co not a problem it's a beautiful extension.

Agreed, it is a nice extension and for the money you are asking it is a deal but in the end only a few businesses will actually ever put the extension to use. I remember seeing a tech startup using one and even hyping it and eventually they bought the .com and forwarded the .co to the .com.

I'm racking my brains trying to remember the company but it escapes me at the moment but that is similar for a lot of the .co extensions in use.

Chances of you getting this domain name sold is quite slim.. when they say they will talk to their business partner, it is usually a slim. They might change their mind after, which is why I don't like to hear such.

All the same, good luck!

He wouldn't go from a .net to a .co for the exact same name, not for $1880. The only slim factor you have in your favor is that you're apparently saying he will lose the hyphenation, but still, for $1880., das bezweifle ich, as the Germans might say.

It doesn't really matter what the domain name is, if I understand you, you are trying to sell him what he already has in .net, minus the hyphen, in .co

Yes, or no?

Most German endusers don't buy .co even for regfee.
If he don't interested in my domain than why he replied me, "Okay thank you i will check this possibility with my partner."?

My post was regarding Germany.

Regarding hyphenation...
It is popular in France... that's why such .net

French endusers rarely spend above 1K EUR for Non-.fr/.com domains...
This is from my own experience and observation.
