Advice for domain sale

Post by limejuice on Wed 12 Jun 2013, 12:02 pm

Hi I've just received an offer for one of my tld's on Sedo which is not a .tel

Although the offer was inline with Sedo's price suggestion being about 300 euros I did feel that it was a little low, as Valuator which seems to show some realistic prices seems to value it at about $15,000

Under normal circumstances, I could push it into their Auction, then let it run and wait to see what happens.

But this offer came to Sedo via Go Daddy which because it is a Cross Platform whatever that is, I cannot push this name into their Auction.

As my potential buyer is not dealing with Sedo direct, I cannot get in touch with them to try and negociate.

It does seem to be a bit of a clever move on the buyers part, as because they have gone through Go Daddy any other potential bidders have effectively been locked out.

The only thing I can do is to submit a counter offer but in doing so I might scare the buyer off.

This is all a bit of a new one on me, so maybe you could give me some advice.

I don't want to say what the name is but its pretty well sold out and fairly hot.

@limejuice - How can you expect forum members to give advice over whether to accept or reject a 300 Euros offer for a domain name if you won't say what the domain name is ?

If you need forum members help in solving a problem you do need to give out the necessary information - why would you want to keep quiet about a potential domain sale if you are seeking better offers ?

If it doesn't work out then the resultant publicity (remember TelTalk's posts are heavily featured in search engines) may result in another offer - perhaps this time via Sedo itself where you can kick off a 7-day auction with the offer as the Reserve price.

Don't forget if you post the domain name here to make it a clickable link, preferably to a Sedo parked page which will have their "For Sale" link on.

Although the offer is via GoDaddy the payment will be via Sedo in the situation you have described - Sedo are very quick payers once they have received the buyers funds and I have used them successfully many times to sell domain names (mostly .coms).

Good luck with the sale !


PS. To get an idea of what others are asking for similar names, go to http://www.name.com and enter your domain name in the search box - you will see many alternatives offered for sale showing the prices being asked.
