Daily Poll: How Often Do You Make Purchase Inquiries and Offers?

I spend a good percentage of my day emailing offers and inquiries to try and buy domain names. A great deal of this time is spent trying to find the right contact at a company – or trying to find the correct Whois information for the domain registrant. It has gotten a bit more challenging with GDPR.

Because of the low response rate (or acceptance rate) – even with offers I deem fair, I don’t recall ever running into an issue where I have more accepted offers than funds to buy domain name. From my perspective, that would be a good problem to have. If that ever would ever happen, I am sure I could finance a purchase at Domain Capital, sell some liquid assets, or even offer up one of the accepted offers to a friend.

I thought it would be interesting to see how often readers are making purchase inquiries and offers.
