Why selling

your domains or even portfolios these days, just before imminent IE7 release?

This selling wave is strange to me.

Re: Why selling

The wave of names for sale is not matched by buyers.

Re: Why selling

Maybe, but the value of the majority of the IDNs offered now will still be worth more, whether they meet the buyers requirements or not.

That may or may not be true, depending on what the names are...

What is indisputable is that domains cost money to renew, and many people here have portfolios containing hundreds or even thousands of IDNs. That's a substantial amount of cash to find over the next few months, especially considering IDNs, on average, currently generate very little parking income.

Re: Why selling

Some people have registered thousands of names...and intentionally have registered enought to be able to sell on the "way up".

Also, there are still plenty of good opportuntites to find .coms and .nets.

Crunch time for reg fees is coming for many...first quarter of next year should kick off that for many, so thats when I think you will a lot more sales than you do now.

Re: Why selling

I agree with both of you, I apologise I was basing my posts on the size of my Portfolio which is around 45 names.

Most people who know what they are doing have more less got the first quarter of next year covered already. If you are waiting for a melt down, it is more likely to come next summer. On the other hand, perhaps it won't come at all!

You only have 45 names and you constantly feature in the sales threads? What kind of Micky Mouse operation is that?

Agreed! I got first quarter covered with the Domainsite $6.49 special .

But first quarter should be the start of selling to cover second and third quarter.
Most will probably just sell the minimum...and keep as many as they can for the run up.

Your current sales price for your portfolio does not reflect this.

If I didn't constantly feature them in the first place I wouldn't have sold 3 names totalling $X,XXX.

Don't mock my sales methods, I'm looking to sell and by posting them on a regular basis may increase my chance of a sale.

Thankyou~

I am sure there are still one or two stone left unturned, but it is going to be very hard for most Newbees to spot them. I think those gems that are left will only be registered by native speakers.

For the most part English speaking Newbees are registering very low grade domains rather than investing a few dollars in the after market. In most cases that will prove to be a very costly error.

I believe that with my current sales price, an investor can take the package and either sell the domains seperately or as a group for a higher price when the IDN is better established.

This is what I meant by this.

Re: Why selling

I am not knocking your names or your sales, but your proceeds to date have far outstripped your investments. Lets face it, on your proceeds acheived, you could have renewed what you hold for many years ahead and still have a postive cashflow.

Many business people would regard this a being prudent. In this game it shows a lack of commitment.

Agreed, but as previously mentioned I am in need of funds. I am not a Business person, and at this moment I would like to get out of the domaining world that I've been addicted to for so long () and invest the money in other projects.

Thats why, to answer Dabsi's original post, I would like to sell.

Richard
