Offers on 4L .COMs going strong as some investors are still going long

A while back I wrote about the increase in 4L .COM offers I was seeing and it sounds like I’m not alone. Just about everyone I know who owns 4L .COMs has reported a steady increase in offers, albeit far off their Q4 high.

That being said, it’s fair to say there are some investors out there buying up just about every 4L .COM they can get their hands on. They’re going long on 4L .COM at a time when many investors are liquidating – it will turn out to be either genius or foolish, only time will tell.

Today a broker posted on popular domain name forum NamePros and said he is buying domain names for a buyer with a massive budget, he set the following prices and recommended buying in batches of 10+ names:

Non chips – 200 – 400
Chips – 1600 – 1900

You can read the full thread here. The broker also said that the buyer is okay buying up to 1,000 domain names per transaction. That means whoever it is has a pretty strong feeling that these prices represent the wholesale price of a 4L .COM now, or close to it. It also means they are betting years from now these are going to be worth a whole lot more.

When everyone is liquidating and some are buying, it does make you scratch your head a bit. What do you think? Is this one foolish investor, or is now a time where fear causes people to sell an asset that is going to grow in value over time?

Only time will tell, but I’d like to hear from you. Comment and let your voice be heard!

    I still think it’s the right time to buy the decent combination of 4L .com and it will pay off well in future. Just need to hold it for the right buyer to knock your door.

    I have strong feelings that 4L .com will rise again and this time with more power which we saw back in 2015.The number of inquiries and offers has been increased since last 2 months. Those investors who have experienced the era of 2008 are more convinced because they know these domains will get true value in no time.

      Great feedback everyone, looks like many do feel that now is a great time to buy 4L .COMs and that the prices we are seeing now are much lower than we’ll see 5 – 10 years from now. For all our sake I hope that turns out to be true! 🙂

    It has never been a better time to get on the investment. These are going up up up up!
    I predict none below $10,000 by end of 2017. with CHIPS closer to $20,000.

  • Samit May 25, 2016, 3:59 am are at the same stage were at 5/6 years ago – highly undervalued. Those who are buying now are smart, long term it will pay off in spades. Tthose who are selling need the cash, it’s that simple. The supply is limited and getting smaller every minute as portfolios are moving to people with deep pockets, who won’t sell cheap when the buyers come knocking.

    More risk now in the investment with tons of extensions, increase in udrp filings and limited liquidity.
    Until, there are financial penalties brought against those that file udrp’s and lose there are better places to park one’s money.

    Yes I agree. I am liquidating all my 2 and 3 word domains in favour of 4L and 5L if it it’s in the dictionary.

    What about good
