    One of the names I sold for $699 received an offer of $1,000 on Sedo within two week after the sale. Notified the buyer that since the initial offer is $1,000, and the name is great, you may be looking at a price tag of $5,000.

    The buyer denied, saying that he doesn't want to have a deal and has different plans with the domain name! It was surprising that there has been nothing on the domain name for over a year.
    I mean, people leave thousands of dollars on the table, and this is an individual buyer I am talking about.

    Looking back, I believe I learned the lesson that it is very important to hold on to your domain names, and after proper research, believe in your names that it would sell, price it right and then, wait for the right time to come.

    OK but why did you receive an offer on a name you had already sold? You kept it on Sedo?

    The lesson here is to remove your listings from all marketplaces immediately after you've sold it. Don't be that guy that leaves listings so the new owner has to contact Sedo/Afternic to get them removed.

    The lesson you should have learned is that when you sell or let expire your domains, remove them from the marketplaces you had them listed, so the new buyer will try to contact the legit owner, and not somebody not owning the domain name.
    You will save everybody's time.
    A lot of mess has been reported because of people not removing the domains they don't own.

    So, I figured there's one thing that most people like to do (but probably won't admit to doing)-Texting Your Ex. Needless to say, my hand-reg adrenaline drove me to Google, and boom! Over 2 billion results! The next idea was obviously to register a domain, and lucky me, I got it!So now, I've got TextAnEx.com, worth 2 billion results but apparently worth painfully less on the domain market! Sucks!

    Yes. I didn't remember removing it. Neither do I ask the previous buyer to remove the listing from marketplaces. I think I should do that! Both when buying and when selling!

    Sure! Valid point! Noted!
