More Five Figure Domain Sales

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

It’s been long time since I shared my domain sales. For the last couple of months I think including this one too, I had 3 domain sales and one was a real special one. For the first time, we leased our domain with having the buyer to makeย payment for a period of 24 months and later the domain will be transferred to him.

Several months back, I decided to re-list my domains with Sedo to see how things work for me because in the past I didn’t see much response from there. However, I quickly made 2 sales of Buddy.CO and Smooz.com. I had acquiredย Buddy.CO for may be $29.99 in 2010 and sold for $7,500. It was decent ROI and I always buy domain keeping in mind that it will take 5 years to get sold if I need fruitful profit out of it. Smooz.com was a nice small sale of $3975.

For Buddy.CO, the buyer started off with $100 offer and at the end it was a good deal for both of us.

The domain which has been leased to sell was actually a deal in 5 figures and making consistent money for a period of 24 months is a great thing and I am happy with this new way of selling domain which might not be new for some butย I am sure most domainers would love to sell their domains on lease to buy option.

Finally this week I sold another domain for $15,500. Unfortunately can’t reveal the names of last both sales. It took longer than I anticipated but at the end the deal went smooth and buyer was a great guy to deal with.

Care to share your recent sales? I would love to hear it. Any questions, feedback is welcome no matter how good or good it is ๐Ÿ˜‰

” a dozen of years have passed since the appearing of the first platforms”

actually the years are even more than a dozen, I guess. So much time that I do not even remember, and we have to say “new way of selling domainsโ€, in 2016โ€ฆ

Spelled the same in Urdu?

Maybe I missed it, but did you mention which platform was used for setting up the lease? I know of a few โ€“ just curious which you’re using and how you found the setup process.

Thanks for the info.

Leasing platforms โ€“ there are a handful out there.

A domainer friend of mine recently moved some of his domains over to Epik, primarily because they offer leasing. So far, I haven’t tried Epik myself. But I have set up installment payment plans through Ecop.com (as a seller) and helped buyer clients who wanted to use Escrow.com in that way. My understanding is that Epik handles the leasing directly, which would be an improvement if they do it well.

Thanks Joseph. Although we keep a pretty low profile, Epik is probably doing more domain leasing transactions than anyone. We were the first to combine a leasing platform with a robust registrar back-end. This allows us to protect both lessor and lessee during the lease. It also means that once the lease is started, we can provide full-service support to the lessee. As a result, it becomes very turn-key. Lease proceeds are deposited commission-free and tax-free into the Lessor’s Masterbucks account, from where the lessee can spend them or cash out. If cashed out, there is just a 5% commission.… Read more »

Hi Abdul,
Congrats on great sale. I enjoy visiting your website every now and then looking for new posts.
How were you able to negotiate from $100 to $7500? ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you counter offer like 10K. then you settled on 7.5K? Looking to learn some negotiation tactic. Thank you
