So I get a $1K offer from a Godaddy broker on this domain.
I respond with a much higher price by simply saying "the price is $xxxxx".
They respond with $3500, claiming its a great offer because its a little more than the Godaddy valuation and then embedding the GoDaddy valuation into their response.
That's the first time I've had a GoDaddy broker try and use their own valuation to tell me their offer is a good one. Has anyone else heard that from a GoDaddy broker before??
I hope that broker is just using that tactic on me - and didn't mention that to the buyer - because if he did, he just put up a serious mental roadblock in the buyer's mind. I get it that he's stuck working with the buyer's budget, but damn, their valuation tool is so off base when I know I've had many 6-figure transactions where they value it at $10K or less.
So now I'm deciding how to respond, and I'm considering saying precisely that, that I sincerely hope that he didn't derail any potential sale by bringing up their valuation to the buyer. And then for good measure I could start listing off all their ridiculous .ca valuations...
Anyone have any thoughts?
