.net .net + more .net

Seems most of the sales offerings here have switched from primarily .com to mostly .net .

Is that a sign that names are getting scare, or that people are holding their .coms?

Re: .net .net + more .net

I think there are a few factors.

1). Buyers are now less willing to pay more than $xxx for a .com.

2). Sellers are now less willing to sell for less than the price that was achieved just a few months ago.

3). Most of the secondary sale for .com are done by chinese drop catchers. Ever since Snap came in, they lost most of the .com to Snap bidders, and end up catching .nets that people are not willing to pay $60. Just look at the sale forum, and you'll see many of the .nets that recently dropped.

I think the best chance to sell is the Feb to June period when the euphoria was at it's peak. Now is the long hold - to wait for IDNs to really become popular for end users. Hoarders must be prepared to hold out. I'm personally prepared to hold out for at least 4-5 years. Some of us here already waited 5 years, so waiting is nothing new in this game.

I really think its a combination of both , tough to give exact %'s but things are drying up and revenues are starting to add up
