I’ve finally put my entire portfolio of domain names on the market, with all my really good New Zealand phone numbers too.
It is a little sad to see the advertisement go up, and to think that many years of a pretty major investment is finally coming to a close. I’m doing it for two reasons – it is a little harder to manage the names from offshore, and we can use the money at the moment up here, getting building of the SWAP HQ under way, to be precise.
I’ve priced the portfolio to sell with a 56 day listing. I’ll be interested to see what develops over this timeframe. When we listed the Go Kiwi Internet clientbase, we still had serious enquiries coming in more than a month after the advertisement was first placed. The funny thing about that sale was that we actually sold it to one of the first enquirers, even though many did due diligence and one even put a non-refundable deposit on it, only to lose it through defaulting!
