    I'm curious, who actually buys the domains listed here and on sites eg.domainlore.

    Is it end users, or in your experience mostly resellers?

    Thanks

    In my experience resellers who will either speculate on them or use the traffic stats to bolster their own projects.

    Here is mostly domainers/developers. There are some end users on Domainlore, but most of the prices things go for are bought by resellers.

    I've only ever sold domains here to investors/resellers. However there are a few end users like myself that will sometimes pay a bit more than resale price to develop the domain.

    Some of us are end users, but the % of domains that are worth proper investment in developing from scratch is tiny, far less than 1%. IMHO.
    There's a much bigger market in selling to speculators/resellers, waiting for end-users could take 5 or 10 years + with no guarantees there will ever be one.
