    if you want 5 million the buyer will be very happy to get diamondgemstones.com for a low price.

    https://uniregistry.com/market/domain/diamondgemstones.com

    the strategy will only work if:

    there are no other options for that price and below.
    the buyer believes he is paying the fair market value (comparable sales in the marketplace)
    the buyer badly wants the domain
    the buyer has the funds to buy it.

    if you look at Rick's 7 figure sales you will see that he does not just get lucky and it is not just him having the balls to ask for a lot of money.

    Ebet.com - Over 1 million - The company was called Ebet. They had millions in the bank.
    There was no other good option than "Ebet.com". Ebet.com was the best domain they could get.

    e+word domains had sold for some good money in the past. Eflowers sold for $1 million. Gambling terms are high value. The price could somehow be justified because of other domain sales in the marketplace, they had the funds and they wanted it.

    Ireport.com - CNN was the buyer. They had millions and millions in the bank. There was no other best choice than ireport.com for them.The domain might have had traffic that alone could have been worth a lot. I+keyword domains had sold for some good money in the past.

    Candy.com - $3 million. best domain name in the candy industry. Buyer badly wanted it. Price could be justified by looking at other product.com sales like vodka.com Type-in traffic was said to be 40k/month. That alone would be worth millions over a decade.

    xxxvideos.com - 1.4 million - This sale was not completed but it was a pure traffic sale. Traffic not the domain was sold.

    Porno.com - $9 million - Buyer wanted it. Extremely wealthy. Great domain in the adult industry. One of the most popular keywords globally. Traffic alone worth millions. Porn.com sold for $9 million.Porno has same keyword stats or better. Traffic alone would have paid at least a part of that purchase or even all of it.

    So what I mean to say is that 7 figure sales don't happen randomly or because you get lucky or because you put a high asking price on your domain. They happen for a good reason, when the buyer does not have other options, really wants the domain, has the funds to buy it and the sale price can be justified.

    7 figure sales are also rare. The domains don't sell because an eccentric billionaire just happens to visit a domain that he likes and falls in love with and doesn't mind spending millions for it because he is so filthy rich that he doesn't care.

    Maybe this will happen one day, so far it doesn't. Domains are not real luxury goods, collectors items or status symbols yet.

    So the value of iMurder is 800 grand!?!?!

    Yep, I can see the boys on death row getting their change together so they can buy this one...maybe a dating site for serial killers!?!?!

    I stopped looking at the list after this one, I am sure there are others just as oddly priced...however, using some of these valuations I've decided my portfolio is worth one...no TWO billion dollars! (insert Dr. Evil sneer here)

    Unless you have millions in the bank or get a time machine and go back to the 90's, there is no chance to get those type of domains. All the top domainers already own them. There are a few exceptions but as a whole most of the top domainers started early. The rest of us are just living through them.

    %95 of the fish are caught by %5 of the customers on party fishing boats. Sure there's some luck, the %5.

    There are few quick bucks in life, it's about ability and talent.

    It takes knoledge and experience in a spefic industry and a forward thinking mindset to do this well. At times sitting behind a computer and tracking metrics is simply not enough. You have to be inside...looking out and understand trends, ahead of the curve.

    Many of these 90s guys came out of the pay per porn industry over the phone, and the business of selling telephone numbers .

    Truly experience pays....obviously.

    Darn.... some of those estimates gave me a good laugh.... while some, or most of those are VERY good domains, i bet one or two of those could be sneaked into any namepros auction and not get more then $100, if that. And Hes asking 6figs....

    No disrespect intended of course, most of those are killer domains, we all know that.... ;).

    Of course you forget that all NPer's are cheap by nature.

    So if the domain sells for less it doesn't really speak on the quality of the domain but on the quality of the audience.

    :wideyed::ROFL::xf.laugh::xf.wink::xf.grin::angelic::whistle:
    Even if it is one of those domain mentioned here.

    The glass is only half empty if you were drinking from it.
    Yet it is half full if you were pouring/adding into it.

    A domain is only worth what someone will pay for it TODAY !

    So when a price is ASKED and it does not sell,
    it is more telling of what it is not worth TODAY,
    otherwise it would have sold TODAY.

    Auctions are not a fair determination of 'value' at all.
    At auction, it is the 2nd highest bidder who determines the price.

    The winner might have been willing to pay twice as much.

    If you leave money on the table, who does it belong to ?

    WHO WILL CLAIM IT ?

    I think this is also because 99 percent of domainers only do one aspect of domaining. They don't utilize multiple aspects to generate income from there domain names nor how to increase there wealth with them. Buying the domain and listing it for sale is an easy aspect of the industry anyone can purchase one. Knowing what to do with it in the meantime after purchasing is where there skills come in that benefit the most.
