The domain seller asks for a price above $5000 and has not interest in negotiation.
How would you deal with a seller like this? Do I waste my time or is there any chance to manipulate this person ;-)
Thanks for any tips.
Hope this helps,
I tried the "walk away" strategy a year ago and it did not work. Now the guy even doubled the price for the domain.
The crazy part is, that the domain is unused and does not generate any revenue. The name is so weird, that I doubt that it has many type-ins.
Because of personal reasons I would pay $1000 for this domain, even if it is worth $50.
Would you get a broker involved or should I go for a $1000 straight?
Others view their "unique domains" as 1 of a kind things, that they are the only one who can offer it and therefore you have to either pay their price or suffer without your loved one.
Listen, love isn't always reciprocal. Hold a ceremony. Burn a piece of paper with the domain on it. Bury it. Move on. You are likely dealing with a seller who, possibly, you are feeding their insanity: You proved their unique name will have suitors and has value. It just might but such sellers are entirely free to keep their special domains and be buried with them if the bond is that great.
Make your offer, if it will give you peace, expect that it will not work and if it does - great - and if it only feeds the beast move on and rest with the comfort that you have deepened this domain owner's belief that his/her domain loves him back and that a greater payday awaits. It just might but in my experience and observation the domain highway is littered with the hulks of tens of millions of special or unique domains.
Just in case I'm the nut holding the domain you should know that you don't know anything about my domain's unique value. Muhahahahaha . . :-P
Your words gave me hope. I will shoot the guy a last offer then go back to my old projects.
I wonder if I should act like this with my real top level projects/domains. It is kind of fun to ask for $2.000.000 for a $50.000 project :-)
