In 2018 two domains that I personally financed for the new owners were paid off. In February I received the last $1 Million owed on Candy.com. Then just last month I got the last 10 payments for Teem.com and that deal is now paid off.
I have always been willing to help a SERIOUS buyer with a PLAN to get into one of my domains for a very reasonable monthly fee. Sometimes just $1000 or $1500 a month just to allow them time to find their footing and make a REAL decision. I am not out to choke them. I am out to help them with life Support".
Today I inked a deal to lease Mens.com for $1500/month for 24 months with an option at $250,000 during that lease period. It's an $18k investment on their part for the first year to see if they can make their idea work. That's CHUMP CHANGE! That's not a big number. That's less than a kiosk at your local mall. So if someone has a great idea and they can't manage to get over that small hump, then they probably don't have much confidence in what they are doing and why should I?
