Does Anyone Else Here Go On Domain Purchasing Binges?

Looked at my domain provider accounts this morning and it's astounding how many domains I have purchased and done nothing with. For example, I'll come across a domain that sounds cool and just purchase it or I'll see 3-character .com domains (my weakness) and have to buy them. I have spent over $850 just in the past week and a half on domains - to be honest, I'm not even sure I'll really use them all.

I can't be the only one who loves to buy domain names. Anyone else like this?

    You're not alone. I buy lots of domain names. My rule of thumb is a humble 600% bare minimum net profit for a domain.

    Project HERE.

    Yes, often do.

    Got the buying part down to the T, just need to work on the flipping side of things.

      I'm always looking for new domain names. Some I build a website and flip it. Others I wait a year or so and sell it.

    Crystal, You are not alone I'm a "domain-aholic " too, I just cancelled 5 domains that I got 3 years ago, these domains were event related, they seemed a great idea at the time but not anymore. For me buying keyword related Domains worked better because I know for sure that there is a market for it and I sold a few of these domains & sites, one of them was in The IM niche" facebook" related. But I didn't sell a single Domains from the "Cool" ones, I guess I've learned my lesson
