Re: Living from IDN sales

Some old timers may have been able to live off from idn parking revenues if they so wished.

There should also be those who are making enough to live well from the idn development. Most if not all of them are probably not on this forum tho.

But for me IDN may be taking too long to come to the mainstream.

I expect there are a very few that may be making a living from IDN but as yet I doubt if there are many making a profit from sales/parking/development.

An investor is somebody who buys and waits for growth.

You are not an investor, you are simply a would-be flipper.

Flippers generally miss out on the big time, because they sell one off opportunities, which are really speculations, before they come to fruition.

Of course they can make a quick buck, but only to the extent that they are more knowledgeable than the Market. Of course from the dumb questions, we can tell that is not you, but I guess if you have an inquisitive mind, then you will eventually become a Savant.

Dude, i'm not selling my entire portfolio..... just indian and german idns; since i think the market is right for them....
if an investor shouldn't sell an asset when the market is right, when should he sell....? when the market is long dead......?

i may be knowledgeable, dumb or a savant..... i don't see how that concerns you.....

Sunbrunch wanted to know if selling idns was a good bet..... he was hoping to hear from the sites's senior members...... if you don't want to help him, fine stay out.... instead, you decide to use his thread to insult me.....?

and i'm not saying i am, but if i am a flipper, what's wrong with that.... what's wrong with looking for a quick buck and not a long term investment.....?

Thou shalt not judge lest be judged thyself......

Are you saying the market is right for selling Indian and German domains right now?

I would say you're in totally the wrong business if you're looking for 'a quick buck'

Re: Living from IDN sales

indian domain names to IDNforums members who are interested ( who are looking for a good quality idn for the long haul)..... and german domains seem to be doing well at sedo.... whether one likes sedo or not, they seem to be the benchmark for determining what's hot right now.....
that's my belief sir.....
market doesn't seem to be right for latin and french domains..... i believe they will pick up in a few years; so i'm holding on to them.....

But I haven't seen you attempt to sell any domains nevermind Indian ones.
I still don't understand why you think the market is right for them.

Yes, but generally with the .de extension and unless you live in or have an administrative contact in Germany then that market is closed to you.

Re: Living from IDN sales

I'd love to see the annual "returns" for an IDNF flipper. All that work to identify domains, go for them, sometimes get them, sometimes not, and then stick them up at IDNF .....

which one time in a million turns into "big bucks" - often turns into no bids. Most common outcome is a meagre sale. Many names get dropped the next year.

Maybe it does beat flipping burgers, you get to stay at home, sit in front of computer all day.

But I can't imagine its a way to make a real living of any kind ....

Each to their own of course, I respect that fully. If flipping is for you, flip away. Personally it woud kill me to identify a good domain, manage to grab it, then sell it for $15.

But good luck to ya if its your bag.
