The following is some advice for prospective buyers who are interested in buying a domain name brokered by pronamer.com.
1) When you find a domain name on the website or somewhere you learn that the domain name is being brokered or managed by pronamer.com, you are encouraged to contact us directly. Particularly do not go use a big company like godaddy. Why? Because they do not care much if they fail to broker a deal. There is a high risk of their failing to broker the deal for you as a buyer. If you want to use a buyer agent, you may want to use an experienced domain broker or a smaller brokerage firm who would work much harder for you.
Many prospective buyers pay a fee (upfront $69 plus a hefty commission) to use godaddy.com or afternic.com or another domain name brokerage service provider, which may not be a wise act. When you hire them to broker a potential transaction, it will be automatically assumed that you represent a big corporation or business organization. That means that the offer made to you will not be lower, in many cases, can be higher which would make it harder to reach a deal.
When you do not directly contact us, your message may not be accurately relayed and the communication between the two parties could have been compromised, which can be a hindrance to a potential deal.
Pronamer.com prices a domain name rarely based on who you are. It is very unlikely that just because we do not know who you are, we would give you a lower price. Our price is largely based on the following few factors:
- a. The intrinsic value of the domain name including the looks, the length, the age, the traffic from search engines, the popularity etc.
- b. How valuable is the domain name of concern to the current owner. The value of a domain name is ultimately determined by how the owner uses it. For instance, the current owner can use this domain name to develop a multi-million dollar business, then he may not sell it for a low price that is the value in the eyes of a prospective buyer.
- c. When a domain name needs to be sold. Obviously, if the current owner of a domain name wants to sell his domain name today, he should price it accordingly. But if he does not mind selling it in the next 10 years, then he expects a much higher price because he would have more opportunities of selling it.
- d. Pronamer.com considers multiple appraisers’ opinions but those estimates are only for your information only. How we appreciate a domain name in a particular market is one thing we consider.
- There is a projection as to how could use this domain name. Remember that a domain name is NOT for everyone. One man’s trash can be another man’s treasure.
- A domain name may be so priced partly because of a business strategy. That is, other domain names in the same portfolio may have an impact on a particular domain name.
2) Prospective buyers are advised to make offers based on one single factor: How valuable the domain name to his or her business. If you want to use the domain name to make a big business, may want to use it to obtain funding or prepare for your business to go public, then prepare to make your offer accordingly. Many owners expect to sell their names to big buyers or buyers with a deep pocket.
Many prospective buyers estimate the selling price based on the “current market value” appraised by some bots. When the seller asks for a much higher price, then the buyer would think that is a rip-off. Wise buyers need to avoid this.
3) In any case, prospective buyers are encouraged not to assume that the selling price for a particular domain name can be too high to even bother to try it. Sometimes, opportunities are there even though the asking price is very high. In many cases, the seller has a lot of flexibility while in other cases, the flexibility may not be too much. For those who know estibot.com, a reminder of the fact: that bot rarely predicts the future selling price for a domain name. It faithfully records many sales data. What is lacking is the characterization of a particular domain name and potential usability and potential buyers. Many premium domain names tend to be under-appraised. Seasoned domainers tend to ask for a price that is 2 to 10 times higher.
Eventually a price should be acceptable to both the seller and the buyer. There should be a compromise in the selling price (The seller tends to ask for more while the buyer tends to offer less).
以下是對有興趣購買 pronamer.com 管理下的域名的潛在買家的一些建議。
1) 當您在網站或某處發現域名由 pronamer.com 代理或管理時，我們鼓勵您直接與我們聯繫。
許多潛在買家支付費用（預付 69 美元外加高額佣金）使用 godaddy.com 或 afternic.com 或其他域名經紀服務提供商，這可能不是明智之舉。當您僱用他們來促成潛在交易時，您將自動假定您代表一個大公司或商業組織。這意味著向您提供的報價不會更低，在許多情況下，可以更高。
- A. 域名的內在價值包括外觀、長度、年齡、搜索引擎的流量、受歡迎程度等。
- C。當需要出售域名時。顯然，如果一個域名的當前所有者今天想出售他的域名，他應該相應地定價。但如果他不介意在未來 10 年內出售它，那麼他預計價格會更高，因為他將有更多機會出售它。
- d。 Pronamer.com 會考慮多個評估師的意見，但這些估計僅供您參考。我們如何在特定市場中欣賞域名是我們考慮的一件事。
許多潛在買家根據一些機器人評估的“當前市場價值”來估計售價。 當賣方要求更高的價格時，買方會認為這是一個騙局。 明智的買家需要避免這種情況。
