One of the neat features on Frank Schilling’s Domain Name Sales website is the recent price quotes tab on the home page. This tab shows you all of the price quotes given by domain owners on the DNS platform. The quotes aren’t exact, but they do give you a price range for most of the names. This may be a good way for you to buy domain names.
I recently purchased a domain name after seeing it listed in the recent quotes section. I don’t want to mention the name because it’s a private deal, but I liked the name and the price range, and I was able to reach a deal with the seller (currently in escrow awaiting the domain transfer).
There is one important reason why you might want to look at the recent quotes for dealmaking opportunities. The names that appear there are in demand by at least one other person. If someone has given a quote for a name, it means someone else has inquired about it. Perhaps they passed on the price, but it’s always a good sign when a domain name has interest.
In looking through the domain names that are listed under recent quotes, you can see that most are end user prices rather than great deals. As a domain investor who is able to pay immediately without any complicated terms, you may be able to get a better deal. Reading through the recent quotes every few days can be a good way to find good domain names.
Yes, the prices may be higher and you may not get a great deal because an end user likely just inquired about the name, but perhaps you’ll find some good values if you look hard enough.
