I had an inquiry on this one from a CSC broker yesterday. I said make an offer. Any bets on how pathetic their initial offer will be?
rlm said:I told them to make their best offer. He replied back with:
I’m looking at a few options for the client so if it’s easier I can tell the client this one isn’t for sale and concentrate on the other domains – let me know how you want to play this.
Cheeky Brit.... Well, either they are interested or not, so I'm not playing that game either. Maybe there will be no offer.
rlm said:I would always encourage any buyer to take their #1 choice, whether its more expensive or not, or whether its my domain or not. They should love it, and it should be perfect for their particular business.
Eby said:That's where the trouble lies. Wish everyone thinks like we do..but they don't. Budget plays a serious role in making decisions, even in the business world.
rlm said:So in some respects, I don't even think it's about money/budget but more about ignorance/stubbornness.
In any case, the point is that sometimes it's not even about money - just thick headed people.
What we really really need is a way to educate buyers, put them into the right mind frame _before_ they see the price.

He didn't tell me he was a realtor, and he kinda flipped out on me and said thats nuts, "I'm out" and referenced the whole, "you know, with covid and all" excuse. He's a successful realtor in Toronto area and I threw that back in his face with the facts about record real estate prices. I even told him with the current situation you can't afford to NOT buy it right now with all that extra change in your pockets and the fact that if he even gets one extra sale in his lifetime with this domain, it was inarguably worth every penny.
