With the increase in demand for shorter and memorable domains, the price has recently taken a big increase in the price. The easier the name is to remember the higher the competition individuals and companies are faced by being outbid and out priced in this market.
Don’t be afraid to ask the seller if they would be interested in structuring the highly priced domain name over 6 months or 12 months of payments. This will make it more accessible to use the domain name for your business as you make a return and buy it outright.
Just like renting your office space or building but you know at the end of the purchase term it is owned outright by you.
