all of your questions have been asked before and many of the answers are right here in this section.

also, wondering why after all that ebook reading, you still have so many of the same questions that every other newbie asks?

please, don't get insulted or take it personally, but geez, 15 questions

1. what do you think? with so many newbies entering the game every day, would you expect competition to be high?
2. true, if you have one or some
3. in general that's one of the reasons
4. that's called "speculating" based on research, which 'logically' should produce desired results.
5. you define your own budget, based on your business plan.
6. I've never ventured to ebay
7. what others make is not my concern
8. there has always been some demand for that category
9. there is no best tool! only the registrar/dropcatcher, current/former owner or the ppc service where the name was parked would know that data.
10. why would you want it?
11. anything is possible!
12. buying strategy, should come before selling strategy!
13. Overture tool, which died in 2007
15. I suppose

Good Luck
