Finding More About A Potential Expired Domain Buyer

Selling your expired domains to a potential buyer could be a very tricky issue. Segregating a serious buyer from a casual one is very difficult as you may deal and interact with hundreds of them. Some of them may be very dedicated expired domain traders who are looking for very good domains expired while a number of others are not too serious in their buying intentions. In fact, non-serious expired domain traders keep looking for their domain names but never buy one. Finding a potential buyer is very difficult when someone does not learn and master the techniques of domain trading. Here are five important things that you must remember before selling your stock of domain names:

1. Finding the location where your buyer lives could be a tough task. Most of them are almost anonymous when they quote their price. Most of them also send their messages through their email ID's. Hence, you will need to know from which location your prospective buyer is sending his or her e-mail. Make sure that you are checking for clues about the origin of e-mails you receive from the buyers. To find out the location from where you are getting e-mails from, you can use tracking software to check the origin of the mails. However, the sender can send e-mail from a location that is entirely different from his or her place of actual residence.

2. Most of the newbie or minor domain traders bid or buy domains on their own. However, some traders solicit the professional help of a broker or a lawyer while buying domain names. You will need to know whether the buyer who is showing an interest in your domain is using professional help. Such buyers could be very choosy and methodic as they look for every detail about the domain name, its origin, previous history, legal status and registrar details.

3. Some expired domain traders make it a point to call their buyer to talk to them about the domain and its price. When you interact with a buyer through a telephone, you can make out if they are really showing an interest in your domain. Their voice and the confidence with which they talk can provide many clues.

4. Does the potential buyer ask for precise details about your expired domains? If yes, he or she is sending a clear signal that your expired domains are good enough for buying.

Whatever the case, never sell your domain names for a price that you feel is very low for its perceived quality. If you are happy with the price offer, you can definitely sell your domains almost immediately. If possible request your buyer to chat with you about the purchase; video chatting is possibly the best and the safest way to sell your domain names. Once you strike a deal, you can ask your buyer to deposit the money in an escrow account; an escrow account can safeguard the deal for both of you with mutual guarantees.
