For Domain Brokerage, Size Does Matter


This is a guest Post by Dave Evanson, Senior Domain Broker at Sedo.  I asked Dave to write about the differences between working with a large domain name brokerage and an independent domain broker. Previously, Andrew Rosener wrote an article about the benefits of working with an independent domain broker.

There are certainly some capable independent brokers in this business, and I commend them for their ability to deliver for both domain buyers and sellers. However, even though there are situations where an independent broker's services may be preferred to those of a large brokerage firm, there are some crucial benefits to working with a large firm. Having been an independent broker myself, I joined Sedo knowing that the vast resources the company has at its disposal would enable me to get better results for clients. At the end of the day, working with Sedo, I have better tools and more time than I would working independently, and so I get higher prices for sellers and great deals for buyers.

Work With a Domain Broker


Maybe it's the economy or the holidays, but I have been receiving a lot of requests for domain brokerage services. I do not broker domain names. I would rather take on all of the risk if I think a name is well priced than use my connections to sell a name to possibly earn 10% of a sale. It's too much of a pain in the you know what to negotiate a sale between buyer and seller when there isn't enough commission to make it worth the effort.

I also have never wanted to create a domain sales newsletter, since many of those start out strong and seem to peter out after some amount of time due to poor names or high asking prices. Never the less, there are a number of people who do broker domain names and are very good at what they do. Of course, the domain names most accept depends entirely on the quality and the price.

During my daily Whois lookups, I frequently see domain names registered at NameView, using a privacy guard. On many of these domain names, there is a note in the Whois listing indicating that the name might be for sale - or is at least potentially available to acquire. The message says, " is  authorized  by  the  domain  owner  to  facilitate  the  sale  of  this  domain."

Until today, I always passed on these domain names figuring the acquisition cost would be too great for me, however, I figured I would take a shot and inquire about a domain name I was interested in buying. In order to make an offer for one of the domain names, you need to sign up for an account, providing name, company name, and contact information. I am sure this is to deter tire kickers and others who aren't serious about buying a domain name. It also gives the domain owner the opportunity to learn a bit about potential buyers.

Today, I decided I would sign up for an account and found that this registration process was simple → Read More
