Not sure if this is the right thread but anyway.

Had an offer via one of the main sites for one of my "better" names, just in excess of $xx,xxx, I responded with a figure that was around 90% higher.

I then had a response of the original $xx,xxx + 35%.

My response was a small reduction in my original asking price.

"Buyer" responds with $xx,xxx + 45%

I then reply with a figure whch is $xx,xxx + 55% ( we are just over 10% apart) and would close at that if the buyer would keep the deal confidential!

Bang, gone- was a 10% difference the problem or the confidentiality request or just another wind up( had many)?

Sometimes people have set a limit.

and sometimes people just gauge your asking price and get his friend to renegotiate for cheaper price.

Acting as a buyer, I once cut of negotiations at a similar point. A few days later the seller came back and was willing to take less than my final offer.

Sometimes threatening to walk.. or actually walking can be part of the negotiation.

If it is worth that much, it doesn't matter. Hang on and you'll get very close to your price.

Sorry, but the reason I started the thread with "not sure if---" was that if considered the inappropriate category then normally mods move it?

Why did you ask the buyer to keep the price confidential, you were selling it, not buying it to resell ... so maybe when you requested this, they thought you were ripping them off ??? Just a guess .... no idea ... stuff happens

I've also had "buyers" who may have been kids or others just playing with me with no real intent on buying or financial resources. They are usually high dollar offers of which I'm often skeptical. I treat them all as serious, but always have in the back of my mind this may just be a troublemaker playing games.

Occassionally the appraisal scammers lead you on this way to wet your appetite for a big sale before they try to scam you.

It may so happen that the buyer had set a limit for himself , or it was his maximum he wanted to pay for that domain. You can check down on the price he wanted to buy the same for, mabey he will respond back,If u r willing to try out..
And if the domain is that good , u will sure get someone else to buy it down from u , so Best of luck for the same..
