    I've got a charity pushing their charity status and they want the above for £100 previously wanting it for free. I'm not a scrooge but I don't like charities when in the main they're money hungry fuelled organisations who waste the majority of what they're given. Charity begins at home. any higher offers before common sense goes out the window and I fall for this charity status rubbish, they're a charity yes but they want to make money - so do I.

    Why dont the charity lease it of you for £100 a year, as a charity and the way they would account for it, it would be well worth their time, you could even offer to give them 25% back each year as a deductable from your business.

    They would be mad not to accept.

    If you would like me to speak to them for you, feel free, I have some experience working with charities.

    Leasing it would be entirely new to me, how would that benefit them rather than a one off purchase? and it would have to be a fifty year lease, their offering on org.uk is for ten years minimum.

    The charity can claim it the same way they do expenses, lots of these small charities run them very poorly, with only a small portion of every pound raised actually donated elsewhere or spent on their cause.

    I wont go in to detail, but anyone who has worked for a charity will know what i am talking about.

    With them offering £100 and my thinking you were only after a multiple of say 3, i thought a lease for 5 or 10 years would be worth it to you.

    Straight lease £100 ten years etc

    Option lease, £100 year one, £150 2, 3, 4, 5, and £200 subsequent years.

    Only liable for 5 years etc, so if they decide to pull out, or as many charities do, fold, they owe for minimum 5 years. you also have the option to re-negotiate the lease at this point.

    Built into the lease, would be an option to purchase, 1500 in year one, falling to £500 in year 10 etc

    Gives you a guarantee of £700, with a chance of more if the charity is a success.

    PM for any finer detail.

    hmmm complicated, I'm tempted to just say £150 and seal the sale, I'm no good at asking too much. I'm not sure if the difference to 2005 to 2008 is me or others, as the standard rate back then was £500 and most (end users) thought that was a blinding deal.

    I asked £300, charity or not it's still reasonable and I have to live. I know it's difficult but they could still turn their operation into a profit making one.

    The thing about charities is they think they should get everything for free.

    The funny thing about this is the person emailing to make an enquiry is on a salary from that charity. :rolleyes:

    They all blag it. They probably turn over £5 million but as I'm not ordering a report on their company I'll never know. At some point I have to find my balls again and get back to business. I still can't believe I only manage to sell on two forums, I tried other domain forums but they're rubbish, have to start selling on more forums somehow.

    I'd be interested to learn which other forum you're having success selling on apart from this one, if you don't mind revealing it? Thanks.

    Yes others forums maybe bigger but the quality of members and domains on them is mostly crap :mad:

    Acorn is by far the best place to buy and sell as far as i'm concerned :cool:

    Scooter : Good point !!!
