What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

Seeing that some people would cash out if giving the oppurtunity I think it's a pretty good question to ask yourself.

I believe there are others who would quickly follow with posting their entire portfolio, apartment, & next door's yard furniture if Edwin's portfolio gets bought out quick.

So what would be a good amount that would make you cash out in the month of May 2006. This is going to be a public poll, also please post why you would at that price (even general info is fine)...

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

As I've already posted elsewhere, I'd sell out at the right price because I'll still have 1,700 .co.uk domains (including maps.co.uk, logo.co.uk, britain.co.uk, kids.co.uk etc.) and another 1,300 .com/net/org ASCII domains. So while I might miss the bulk of the IDN growth under such a scenario, I could harness some of the cash for other purposes that might prove equally lucrative, while still keeping both feet deep in the domain game.

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

If it was this month I'd be happy to go for 2 to 3 mill with my portfolio of 500 domains. Some of the competitive words in the job related field especially. Many of the companies in Tokyo would easily pay between $50,000 to $100,000 to rank number 1 for these 5 terms I own. Why sell the domain for less I figure.

The travel related terms will probably go for $2,000 to $50,000 to end users depending on the places.

They'd also get terms like adult video, TV Games, PC Games, Bikini Idols, Sale, Kyoto, Rotemburu, Daytrader, plus the collection of alcoholic beverages..

You know what... After remembering all these I own.. It does seem cheap.

I do think with that kind of money I could develop a huge multi million Japanese dollar portal though.

If you can really land those kinds of sales in the near-term, you should be selling domains as fast as you can and multiplying your potential earnings by buying other stuff cheaper on the aftermarket! From the evidence on this forum and elsewhere, $50,000 will buy you virtually any IDN you like, take your pick...

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

I have contacted many players to sell my 50 names or more for low to mid xx,xxx$ in january

In March I was asking high xx,xxx$

In April I asked low xxx,xxx$

Right now I think I would take 150,000$ which equal 3000$ per name

I think in 2007 or 2008 I won't accept 100,000$ for the top one only

but people still has no ears to listen and my emails will be witness of their slowness.

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

I'm clamping down a bit on the cheap sales & this week getting a friend of mine to organize about 400 domains in my portfolio for the Japanese market.
I'm also deciding between 2 friend's companies to actually take the inquiries for a good percentage for perhaps a year.

Are you actually getting UNSOLICITED inquiries at the moment? Or do you mean to generate leads and approach potential corporate buyers?

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

If IPTV becomes a reality, then I will make 500K (in 10 years)

If 80 milllion Telugu speaking indians use telugu IDNs, for my 50 domains I will make atleast 500k (10K per domain I know I am dreaming...but worth a dream)

If all other languages are well used in india, I will make 100K.

That makes 1.1 million, man I am rich .

Its always nice to dream, one thing we can sleep happily, while all the already rich can't dream as much.

With my other ascii domains...I can retire....

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

Preparing a portfolio site in Japanese & will start doing promotions of it in Japanese. No unsolicited inquiries. I probably wouldn't even notice if I got them.
There are target companies to pitch to that I already have ties with anyway.
I think I did a good part in getting good domains in the hands of IDNF members worldwide, I'm going to start looking for sales in Japan. This way I can get end user prices...

Re: What amount would you sell your portfolio for?

Sounds like an exciting plan. I guess if you can find the right approach/process to reach - and persuade - end-user buyers to pay end-user prices, then you can start gobbling down other domains and even entire portfolios, safe in the knowledge that you'll be able to turn a massive profit on them.

Even in the ASCII world, the gulf between reseller and end-user pricing is often 5x-10x or more, so I suspect it will be much higher in IDNs for some time to come...

Just don't forget you are going to have to share with the tax man! To retire in style these days your talking $2 to $3 mil, generating maybe $ 150- $200k income per year off the principle. Thats still not living extravagent if you figure basic retirement communities, health care, travel, etc.

Anyone with a _potential_ substantial future asset value on their hands needs competent tax structure advice NOW.

If you suddenly find yourself with millions of dollars of domains in your personal posession, you might need a case of vaseline handy because your relevant tax authority is going to LOVE YOU LONG TIME.



DO IT NOW, DO IT PROPERLY.

http://sovereignsociety.com/ might be a good first stop.
I was told this is the way to go , im going to do alot of reading up on it
