    Yesterday i got an offer regarding domain "PIZZA.AM" . I asked 1000$ for it but he said he would buy it for 500$, he said he would pay me through escrow, is this the fake buyer or is it the real deal? i am new domainer i never sold anything on internet so am kinda freaked...:confused:

    Please advice me.... what should i counter offer? or should i accept the offer or should i hold it? because i registered this domain 3 months ago..

    Thank you...

    I wouldn't do it, you are only getting 1/2. and I have never heard of it, but they seem legit.

    Dont try get to greedy. Usually never works that way but you can try. Maybe try haggle with him like go for 850 and its a deal and see where he goes from their.

    If you feel so then ask $1000 itself... I dont think it will fetch $5k.... as its not a premium domain....

    If you really feel they will pay $1k or $3K then tell them you want to do, or did a professional evaluation of the domain. If you are honest you really can get one done and share the results with him, if you are not so honest you can say it got evaluated at $5k... keep in mind though they may be able to see through you and may have already done a professional appraisal.

    One other option, if you are positive they are an end user and positive they are willing to pay big for it... tell them you changed your mind, tell them you forgot you had it listed for $1000 and that you aren't that motivated to sell. If you drop the "not motivated to sell" offer on the table that pretty much sends a clear signal to them to lay all their cards on the table and let you know what they are willing to pay. Then you can go from there... but do realize they may walk away and if you have to go crawling back to them they may play hardball with you and try to get you to sell it for $300. Negotiations are tricky touch and go things. But I wish you the best with it.

    I may be wrong, but if you already put it on Sedo you may be legal obligated to sell it for whatever price it goes for.

    They are probably reading this thread right now. :)

    Your Alexa Rank is crazy for only being 3 months old. I would hold onto it for a hot minute. Get a professional evaluation before selling. Show that to the buyer and tell them what you want.

    Next move: Evaluation.
