    You will Dan, and I say that with all the confidence in the world. I just sent you an invite from Linkedin and just maybe we can help each other....here are a few more i just reg'd with a purpose in mind;

    GoTeam.realty
    GoWild.realty
    and a dozen sports teams nicknames like GoBears.realty (Chicago) and GoDucks.realty (Oregon)

    For ships and grins I just registered GoDaddy.realty. And for those of you who say "you can't do that"...you know what I say:xf.wink:

    Finally, where it's appropriate and the .com is available, I own Taste.realty and TasteRealty.com. Also where appropriate I may own the singular and the plural.

    Good Luck Dan(y)

    It's just been 10 days since .realty went on the market for .99 cents, and it took me all this time to find and register Stoner:xf.eek:realty. I may need to ship this one to Colorado to get top dollar:xf.smile:

    Something I'll share, .homes (Dominion Domains) was just sold to the top level domain registry xyz. The reason I mention this is because homes and realty go together like peanut butter and jelly:xf.wink:

    For example EXPRealty.com could just as easily be named EXPHomes.com. I happen to own domains like FloridaHomes.realty and OrlandoHomes.realty where the homes and .realty are a perfect match. What I find interesting is that Estibot appraises FloridaHomes.com @ $60,000 and OrlandoHomes.com @ $224,000.
    This is all good comparable information to show an "end user" buyer who certainly understands comparable's when it comes to real estate sales.

    Finally, I have a check in hand for $375 for BroadBay.realty that I can cash as soon as I get a business license for Broad Bay Realty, LLC. Mission will be accomplished by no later than October 31st. Have a good week ladies and gentlemen(y)

    As for the poll, I am not sure I can say yes or no on that, its way too early. I suppose its going to depend on adoption. .XYZ is too generic for it to be a good ext. What I like is that the .99 promo lets us buy it and go out and promote it to the real estate professionals, for a relativly low cost, and then if we sell them for a decent amount it can help us keep a few other ones. I got a few with the name of lakes, as I figure those properties near water are more high-priced. Higher prices mean higher bid prices for the domains since they are going to make more money selling near water.

    Joseph, I just bought IndianLake.realty. Ever hear of it? I had a cousin who was Mayor/Barber of Russell Point way back in the 50's. I'm actually an S.O.B. or Son Of Buckeye...my Dad from Wapok graduated The Ohio State University in 1937. Before I go too far off topic...check your Linkedin and Good Luck!

    Linkedin.....actually FrogPondRealty.com is taken and leads to a Chinese site? Regardless it's a catchy name, and you of all people should own it:xf.wink:

    Not sure what you mean by "i get maximum visits"? Any plans to "outbound market"? Thanks for sharing and Good Luck!

    Still thinking outside the box....just registered;

    Minority.realty
    Ethnic.realty
    Cultural.realty

    Another one i picked up a few hours ago was FirstPlace.realty, and a selling point is that FirstPlaceRealty.com is for sale at GD for $49,888. This is the sort of data that may help when selling to a potential "end user" for your .realty domains. Good Luck!

    Go .Realty

    Thanks...i have 465 .realty and 28 realty.com listed/parked at Epik as well. I've sold several domains at Epik and find their 9% commission very reasonable.

    Just a suggestion for anyone following this....if you own a domain like Progressive.realty, check to see if ProgressiveRealty.com is available and register it if you can afford the $8.50. From a pure business perspective it makes good clickcents:xf.smile:

    Go .Realty

    465 .realty domains are huge numbers..:xf.smile::xf.smile:.are you confident of selling of many of these in one year? what about its renewal after one year if you could not find some resonable sales if these within one year..??

    Inbetween progressiverealty dot com was registered in 1998 dear friend..😉

    I have a total of just $688 tied up in my 465 .realty domains and my 28 realty.com domains. However I do have at least 100 man hours creating, researching and registering my portfolio, and I still have another 10-15 hours of labor to finish my landing pages at Epik.

    My plans beyond this involve developing a simple cookie cutter site very similar to tweet.realty to promote my realty domains and use Epik as my back end. I also intend to do some click internet marketing at NAR or the National Association of Realtors, and some targeted email marketing to potential end users. Finally, because realtor/agents are easy to get on the phone, I'm planning with a friend to do some outbound marketing via telesales.

    Finally, while I may renew most of my realty.com domains, it's unlikely I'll be renewing any of my .realty domains unless I can cut a special deal with Epik and the owner of .realty.

    As for ProgressiveRealty.com....i only used it as an "example". I'm sure I didn't say or insinuate I own it. However I own many domains just as good if not better. Thanks clickcents:xf.smile:

    Go .Realty

    You're welcome...i've learned in life that in order to be successful at anything you have to be "inspired". Another seasoned/experienced domainer who posted on this thread said, "the industry hasn't caught on to the .realty extension, and that it's been out for some time". It was his comment "it's been out for some time" that caught my attention, and after doing 60 seconds of research I discovered it just introduced 04/2017:xf.rolleyes:

    Finally, I've been successful at "most" things I start because I never give up. I may need some help along the way, but "inspiration" is in my DNA. Thank you for contributing clickcents(y)

    I'm just looking back and analyzing some of the fine work done here. Both your pricing and exposure look great . Where you're asking $299 for a domain, I see others asking $5,000 plus for similar domains.

    Every time I say I've filled my boat, a new name seems to appear #500 was Wrangler.realty #501 Accelerated.realty, #502 Cider.realty and #503 CiderHouse.realty.

    Just 50% of mine have pricing similar to yours, and a few have background images so my work is cut out for me. I'd gladly pay someone .99 each to set mine up when my SS check comes in around the 15th of the month. Maybe I could get my neighbors kid to do it:xf.wink:
