I have come across a website (which seems to be run by an individual) who has many prime domains for sale. I have spotted a key .net domain listed for 15k, with its .com counterpart listed upwards of 45k.

Would approaching him with a high level interest be foolish if I wanted to attempt a negotiation?

I want to make it clear that I want to negotiate but don't want to come across as cheap or desperate (I am not).

thanks to everyone in advance for your valuable input!

Simply state that you are costing a new project (i.e. you are not desperate) and you might be interested in buying one or both of the domain names if you could reach an agreement on price. You might then suggest a price being about half of what you might ultimately stretch to. If you are on the same page, he will reply positively.

There's certainly nothing wrong with asking - the worst you will get is a "no". It's interesting that the .net is 1/3 the price of the .com as often times you see a much wider gap.
