    I have around 6,600 domains now. Part of those are with a partner. Trying to grow to over 10,000 domains in the next year.

    I don't want to advocate NameWorth here, I was just referencing my prior post that at a particular point in time I was making an effort to up the prices on 30-40% of my domains in an attempt to increase revenue and get higher sales.

    If I had less domains I probably would have manually evaluated all the prices. But the thought of manually re-evaluating over 6,000 names was painful, so that's why I ran them through the tool first to identify the top names, then manually reviewed the domains that were flagged.

    After 17 years, I've gotten 2 of my highest sales so far in the last 12 months, so the effort has been successful in that respect, but the total revenue is about the same as mentioned in my post above. The end result is I've sold and leased 40 names in the last 12 months, instead of 60-70 domains like I had in the prior 3-4 years.

    I'll say congrats to you as well NameBuyer. A few questions and a few observations. Did you personally have an "end user" or a "use" in mind for plantogrow.com when you registered the domain in 2016? Regardless, do you know what the "end user" intends to use it for now? The reason I ask, if you attempt to access plantogrow.com it just takes you to a login page where you need a user id and password to enter.

    My first thought was, "plan to grow" what?....corn, assets, your business etc? As you know, most of us don't reach our potential or goals because we "fail to plan"

    Like you I follow NameWorth and their valuations, and I see where they value plantogrow.com at $34,500 while GD values it at $2,134, FreeValuator at $2,375 and Epik/Estibot at $460. Note, i see where Estibot just changed their valuation to $25,000 based on your recent sale:xf.rolleyes: To make another point, of the thousand domains I own, 50 of them have valuations from $5,450 to $44,500 at NameWorth, and as a result of your sale, i intend to pay more attention to those domains:xf.smile:....thank you!

    A couple more observations...i see where you have a "partner" in your domain quest. It's pretty much a fact that two heads are better than one, and while I'm able to create comparable names to plantogrow.com almost daily, i need help bringing them to market.

    Finally, i think I read where you liquidate less than 1% of your portfolio annually? While that works for your business model, it most likely doesn't work for everyone's. What I'm saying is, there's more than one way to succeed in this business and you've carved out your way....good on you(y) and thanks for sharing.

    One last thing...i just hand reg'd a domain very similar to the name ProfessorBrad.com, that btw is already registered. However, Nameworth values ProfessorBrad.com at $1,750 while it values the domain I just registered at $7,450. My point is that I seem to be getting better at this every day, and NameWorth is confirmation:xf.wink:

    Do you mind sharing if this was this a BIN sale or negotiated? I would love to know how the negotiation went if you are willing to share. I am always curious to know how 5+ figure sales are negotiated...
