At the end of last year I sold first-last name domain to an end-user for US$5,165. The domain name was listed in DnJournal as well. Thanks to Ron Jackson for listing the domain.
I contacted the end-user and his initial email wasn’t so impressive. It seemed he wasn’t very much interested but asked for the price. I asked £3,200 equivalent to US$5,165 and told him that I have some flexibility so if he is really interested can contact me. Soon I received an email that he is not interested in negotiation and is willing to pay what I asked for!
It was really exciting and most importantly shocking that an end-user is not in the mood of negotiating the price and willing to pay what I wanted. The deal was completed very quickly and all was done in good manner.
I wish the buyer best of luck with the shorter domain they bought. Currently they operate with EmilyJanesFoods ((dot)) com
In my next post I will try to explain in detail whether you should invest in these first-last name domain because the possibilities are very limited as compare to selling product/service related domains.
In the meantime if you care to share any first-last name domain you have sold to date and how was your experience with it?
