So I got an offer for a domain that I paid $800 for. X🖼 (that’s a frame) in the dot com. The offer came in the $1000 range. I was actually wanting to sell a few domains to free up some cash because I’m wanting to buy more domains. I’ve blown through my summer money already (on domains and taxes) and I’ve got quarterly taxes this week so I could use a sale. And I’m addicted to buying domains. So I countered at $7800. I really think I could get more for it later but she found me at a good time.
They countered at $3K which didn’t do it for me. I want to sell but not that bad. I responded with $7500. They came back with that was as high as they could go. I responded with a sorry but not interested at that price and wished them well in their project. A few days later they came back at $3500 and it was their absolute final price. As I said earlier I was in the mood to sell. So I set my Efty account BIN to $4000 and told them that price would be up all weekend and I would take it down on Sunday night.
Tuesday night they get back to me and said they would still like to buy it at $3500. I told them they missed their chance to buy it at $4000. I had it up for 4 days and they didn’t buy it so I was out. I moved the BIN up to over $10K at Efty but secretly left it at $7800 at Godaddy. Yesterday they asked if I could put the price back to BIN $4000. I didn’t respond and I won’t respond. If they want the name they can use the BINs. I ended up getting my money a different way. I bought call options in AAXN and they doubled so I took my profits and put all of them towards my taxes. Paid and done.
My windows of taking low prices are getting shorter and shorter. It used to be months, then weeks and now I will get in the mood to sell something for a day or two. After that I snap back into the “wait and I’ll get more” mood. Patience comes from 3 things. One, the quality of my names are good enough that I can be patient. There will be another buyer later. Two, experience. Experience tells me that good domains get more valuable with time. Three, if you don’t need the money you can be more patient. My problem is addiction to action. I like buying and selling. So I am usually just buying. Lately I’ve been trading options to get my fix. But when I run out of money I have to wait. And I f’n hate waiting. I have been super fortunate in that somehow I end up making some money right when I’m Jonezing to buy. I hope the trend continues.
