    It's definitely not about bragging of ghost sales!

    The other day I added up most of the offers I turned down over the years on regfee or next-to-regfee domains (goes into the 5-figures) and I kick myself when I see these domains either still sitting in my portfolio and my enthusiasm about them has dwindled (I matured as an investor) or some of them being lost (accidental drops, etc)

    I think about how I could've used those profits to get even better domains than the ones I was holding.

    Lesson learned. Unless a domain is liquid/obvious value way higher than the offer price, take the money and upgrade your domains. $500 hard profit now beats the *possibility of a $1000 profit 5 years from now. $5000 hard profit now beats the possibility of $8000 profit 5 years from now, and even then it's still a gamble.

    If anyone reading this now wants to treat domain investing as a real business instead of a gamble/lotto-hobby, realize you cannot and will not hit a home run every single time. Every $xxx offer you turn down for $xxxx, that $xxxx may not ever come. Cash is king. Take your profits and feel good about it. The universe rewards turnover.

    Completely agree with you here, but sometime I like to push the boundaries, but that just me.
    This depends entirely on how capable you are on valuing your name, else its all a gamble.

    Why do you want to embarrass yourself further by just talking about ghost sales...

    This is completely true. In 5 years I spent about $7,500 on gTLDs. $0 in sales. Recently I bought GreatBrand//com for $7,500 on a 2 year payment plan. I would rather take the money I save on domains that are not making money and buy another Ultra Premium name even if it is on multi-year payment plan.

    I just checked the website on your sold .xyz domain name, actually that is a pretty nice developed site :)

    Well, I do not think DeliDomains needs to mention any name here, I personally still derive value also from this type of posts. He got "group disliked", which I think is unnecessary, but for each their own.

    But you see, you were able to sell your 3 worder in .xyz for 3k....so I assume you can understand that other's are also selling their names, and I would leave it up to them what they share. I personally can tell lot only from checking the porftolio of others, I do not necessarily need an information from them about sales (and definitely not about their offers, or "offers" ... if you know what I mean)

    Nice domain man. And at least you'll know if ever you needed some quick cash, you'll be able to get *something* for it right away and it all comes with a $8 - $9 annual renewal fee, verses hundreds/thousands of dollars worth of recurring fees on risky domains. Asset > Liability.

    Once again I am right...I used my "a-brain", lol.

    And this is lesson for others as well: learn to extract infomation, even when it is not delivered for you on a silver plate..do not be so called "lazy domainers" :)

    None of us had a problem extracting information. That was never the point.

    Regarding nTLD aftermarket overall...
    My current average result is $1K+ per domain, sold 13 non-premium domains as of today.
