After lurking on NamePros for the past ~4 years... I've finally made a sale that I'm extremely proud of.

I purchased this seven-letter-keyword .xyz back in the summer of 2019 for ~$300 with the intentions of developing it into a social-network-style website. Hard to believe I was a freshman in college. Fast forward 4 years, and for the past couple months I've been getting tons of offers for it on DAN.com. After doing a little background check on one of the more serious offers I received, I find that this person is a majority owner of a content creator subscription service. They threw a solid offer to begin with, but I politely declined. After waiting a month, I sent one last message saying that I'm still open offers (just higher ones, lol).

No less than 2 hours later, they offered $50,000. I contemplated using the brokerage service that is integrated with DAN.com, but I opted to negotiate myself because the 20% brokerage fee on top of DAN.com's 9% transaction fee seems absolutely absurd. I counter with $150,000, and we go back-n-fourth a few times before basically settling in the middle of where we started. Yesterday, it was the 5th highest .xyz sale according to NameBio.com, but I see that Swetha has done it again with the sale of wrap.xyz... so now my sale is the 6th highest .xyz sale. ;)

I'm unsure about the etiquette of revealing the buyer, domain name, and the exact sale price... but if it's appropriate, I'm happy to share the details.

I'd like to say thanks to the NamPros community for teaching me over the past 4 years, and also to @DNGear for showing everyone the true value of .xyz domain names.
