I am not sure what is going on with buyers this week. Is it the weather or something?
I had 3 offers this week that were close to the price I was thinking about the domains, 2 of these domains are now in Escrow.com and still I am not sure if I will sell any of the 3 domains.
On the first one, a geo/job .com, I got a $2,000 offer and I was asking for $3,000. The buyer told he that he was going to think about the $3,000 price over the weekend. On Monday he said that he thought the domain was only worth $1,750. There is no better way to end negotiations with me than to lower your offer. I told him that the $3,000 is good for a week. Then it is $4,000. He actually opened my eyes on this domain as it has a double use.
On the second one, a 2 word .com, I got a $4,000 offer that I accepted and started the escrow.com transaction. 2 days later and the buyer had not replied to my email and had not accepted the transaction at Escrow.com. So I call him and he says that he is still thinking about it…
On the third one, a .org, I got a $2,000 offer that I accepted and again started the escrow.com transaction. Today I got an email saying:
In further exploring this option, I still think that $2,000 is going to be beyond my budget. Would $1,000 be accepted by the seller?
This is part of his email from 2 days ago:
Would the seller be willing to entertain an offer of $2,000 USD?
This is my reply today:
Your $2,000 offer has been accepted and we are in a binding contract.
Please make the payment at escrow.com.
At this time I am not sure if the 2 transactions that I have in Escrow.com will go through but the odds are against them.
I am not sure how I should treat these people. They seem to lack some basic understanding about trade and society in general. When you agree to a price you can’t make another lower offer 5 minutes later. I bet they wouldn’t do this if we were face to face. Or maybe they would…
