I'm an advocate of proposing a new way to invest in domains. It's called a seller buyback. Or, a seller leaseback with option to buyback. Or, seller lease to own back. This is when the seller of the domain leases, or agrees to buy it back on terms that will yield the Buyer/New Domain Owner a handsome return on their investment. We back our offerings with real estate. The domains make sense. The numbers make sense. Think about it. Looking for a way to beat inflation? This is a way.

Hi

once the name is sold, i'm not looking to buy it back later.
now, if they drop it some years later, then i might backorder it and try to catch and resell again.


imo....

What about from an investment standpoint as a buyer? Would you buy a domain that a business is leasing for 20% roi?

It's simply LEASE-TO-OWN, and buyer get to own the domain, payable in INSTALLMENTS.

"seller agrees to buy it back" --> If I own CANDY.COM, and lease the domain to a candy maker for X years, and he sells his candy using the .COM, I might be entitled to get X% as royalty. But, who will take the pain to lease a domain, and build SEO links on a domain, they might have to eventually surrender? Why would I let someone dictate price for a dot-COM, when I can own any gTLD?

What you say may hold good if you owned CANDY.COM, and its related trademarks, a matching phone number like 1800-CANDY-COM. There are many people who are selling vanity tags, phone numbers, and fancy number plates. Good luck finding such a package deal for a client with fat pockets, who wants to waste zero-time doing branding.

If you to find one such candy maker, the said party will be FRANCHISEE, provided he agrees on non-exclusivity, which means you can use CANDY.COM for number of sellers and get a cut on sales, which is non-practical.

Explain me who will take the pain to lease a domain, and build SEO links on a domain, very knowing that they might have to eventually surrender the domain to somone who did nothing but regg' it in 1992? Is it his fate to have been born in 2000s, and not get CANDY.COM? If I was the candy maker, why would I let someone dictate price for a dot-COM, when I can own any gTLD and build my own marketplace?

If you even leasing the domain, you don't get much RoI. The candy maker may continue paying $x/year, because he has a long-lease. And, technically, if he makes $1bn profit or $800/mo loss, you will continue to get ONLY $x/year. May be, if you are to sell this its called FINDER-FEE ; ) The candy maker will want the domain at any cost, because he has spent a fortune in marketing the domain and not YOU.

I speak neither for seller, or buyer. But, if you really have a compelling idea, please build a startup, and send the link. Test it with atleast 3-4 users, who might pay you for a long lease. Eventually, your time would be reduced to owning a domain, which is non-practical for 2022. I won't be satarical and ask you to start collecting NFTs, but this is a speculative world and, your beliefs will shape your reality. Wishing you good luck on your endeavor.
