buyer got a steal congrats to all the winners
Thanks for this awesome and inspiring tale of shooting for the moon! Congrats and happy holidays to you!
@WhoaDomain.com would you like to share how many handregs do you hold?
Who would have thought that junk became a gem. Congrats again kabayan, isa kang legend.
Actually I thought that but Reit's aren't just your run of the mill ones.
I'm banking on datacenter Reit's. It's a solid investment.
Also any reit with self storage in their portfolio.
It's easy enough for anyone t check that using tools online. I think over 15,000? But that's my business.
Note. I have been holding bags of cryptos since the beginning.
And 2. I have been selling domains with NDA I can't ever talk about plus sales here and there that are so negligible I forget about them really. $50 $100 sales here and there t end-users for quick flip.some are less than a year old. Many are exact match domains for the address of a big development.
And then of course there is the parking money on domains I snagged that have tons of backlinks.
So before you go and say "oh $50,000 is going to get eaten up with your renewals."
Relax. I've always had my backend covered.
Everytime crypto moons? I sell sell sell. Then pay my renewals.
Or use money from parking or the $50 -$100 sale here and there.
So yeah. I'm good. Thank you for asking.
Correct! $127,000 actually. Sometimes you need to feel your out. Don't get that mistaken for feel your buyer up because that will just end ruining the sale and you in jail. Lol
Congratulations, Reits are big business.
That was the ultimate point of creating this thread. Not showing off. Anyone who really knows me knows I'm not that A Hole.
In fact when someone else makes a big sale I'm the first to cheer them on.
Every big domain sale legitimizes what we do especially in a world that demonizes us as cybersquatters.
Well anyone who knows me knows I don't put buy nows on my domains by design. It just limits potential.
Usually buyer reaches out asks price I look at @namebio and other stats them quote a price.
In this case the prices were for $127k for a .com.au in the "starting with invest" sales and the next one down was $50k+.
Then you factor in coronavirus times and economy.
Ultimately you need the feel your buyer out.
In my case buyer wasn't fortune 500 type but I liked the young man. So I dropped my expectations. But trust me I worked at it. But $50,000 was fair.
Congratulations! Amazing selection of domain name. I compiled some hand reg stories here
I thought that too but few things I considered.
1. He registered the exact match social media accounts. No one really talks about this but a domain with its matching social media accounts taken by others or the buyer ? Kind puts the seller in a pickle.
So here's a thought. Should domainers try to secure the exact match social media accounts for their domains to lock in value?
2. Coronavirus economy = you take what you can get.
3. Payment plans really are a Godsend.
4. The price was originally $50k but got bumped up to $55k to cover transaction expenses plus since it's in installments I needed to get some interest also. Epik was paid 9%. I can say this publicly because seller agrees to the terms.
I did this with a few of my domains, not easy to find social media names available (at least not on twitter and ig)
Note. I noticed I was getting emails from people who were registering free social media accounts that are exact matches for my domain names for $250 a pop.
Basically they somehow can get a list of domains registered that day and pick and choose which ones might be developed and then register the twitter Facebook and Instagram even LinkedIn.
Then sell each for $250 a pop.
I can see a domainers doing this.
Forget paying to hand register domains. Just wait and see what people register today and cherry pick the good ones.
Now that's genius and if you are broke? Great way to make money.
@WhoaDomain.com what's your sell through rate for your 15k domains, let say % of domains sold above $500 . Here everybody talks about 1 to 2% STR per year, but i see something like 0.5% only on my portfolio. whats your take on it. And congrats on new milestone sale
I think 1-2% is about right. Again I do have sales under tight NDA's. Those basically covered about 3 years of renewals with profit on the side.
Not really here to give up all my financials to just anyone who asks. You know?
Let's just keep things strictly about the magnitude of the sale.
And as far as me keeping a float and the "concern" relax.
I'm on a Boat!
Heartiest Congratulations @WhoaDomain.com
Is this the same domain for we all learned and did payment planning class
I already congratulated you in that thread that before Xmas this deal will conclude in your favor.
Anyway congratulations once again, this is the best way to begin the final month of year...head start, keep rocking
it is real a magic！
last month i reg TheReits.com
@GreatBrand.in same to you! May you and your family enjoy the holidays. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Strong. Best of luck!
nice. Good luck!
Nobody else would think that name is worth 50 K or that someone would be willing to pay 50K for that name. He has a skill at picking up names in this case pearls nobody else notices so yes there is skilled hand regging going on.
But getting 50K for a domain that is 3 years old and would only matter to a select few (niche)in a very bad year is a lucky break. Its very hard to justify that price for better names or get someone to pay that amount in general. He is lucky his buyer had the amount he asked for. I am pretty sure less than 2% of sales come in at this range or above.
This is really a great news, congrats for the sale @WhoaDomain.com. Thanks for sharing those info.
Congrats! Good catch several years ago and most important - good price you was only agree with.
