Mortgage/Real Estate Domains for Sale (and Announcement)

Services for Real Estate Pros with Visual Approach Aerial Photography (Visual Approach Photography) Remote Pilot - FAR 107

I don't really like to advertise here on AR, but I have come to a decision to exit the mortgage business completely, at least for now.  I closed my mortgage business as it became cost prohibitive to operate, especially solo, and focused on a mortgage rate forecasting business, which may return after summer or in the future.  We will have to wait and see about that one as it had potential.

I have decided to focus solely on my new photography business, which friends of mine had highly encouraged me to start after seeing my work.  Below is a list of websites I have that are under development for that business, so feel free to check them out and you decide if my friends were right (they said my talent was too good to not share).  Keep in mind that these sites are still under develop and it will take me a while before they are completed and have the pictures I want uploaded. 

Robert Ashby Photography (all around site for seeing my broad range of shots and capabilities to buy canvas prints of any you like as most are suitable as art)

Ashby Pro Photography (will cater to the commercial, fashion, advertising, real estate, etc. world - more of a marketing website than "sales")

Fotógrafo Robert Ashby (website catered to my local portuguese speaking clients and thos ein Brazil)

Facebook Page (mostly pictures of models, though some travel and other photos will likely get uploaded as well)

New AR Profile (where you will see me writing now on AR)

That was the announcement, now on to the main part of this message, which is the fact I find myself with a lot of domains I no longer have much use, but most are valuable.  Take a look at let me know what you are interested in and let's get you a site you can maximize your profits with!

Some of these domains were never implemented, some just have a Wordpress or Joomla installation, but some have some serious Google juice despite laying essentially dormant.  Most are domain names that have some serious potential for the right marketer, so I plan on keeping them until they sell, or I get around to implementing my own marketing strategy to make serious money with them down the road.  In blunter terms, don't expect to be able to just let them sit and I let them expire and get them for a simple domain registration fee.

Again, take a look at them closely and let me know which ones you are interested in.  If you want to buy one, feel free to name your price and if it satisfies me, its yours without creating a bidding war.  If not, expect to see me auction them off to the highest bidder that meets my "minimum" for each.

Thanks for taking the time to check out the domains available and don't forget to start following me under my new profile (which may stay as members only for a while since it is not a "rainmaker" account).  Look for some good posts on photography and probably even some marketing, among some other things, which I expect to make it worth reading, just like this blog has been.

Thank you.  I am sure some will be worthwhile to someone here on AR, especially those doing mortgages in Florida.

I've been hoping for four years to get to know you well enough to call you Bob. Now you're leaving.

Best of luck!

Good luck. It's worth a shot. Buy the domains market them with back links and then sell them.

Thank you.

I am not leaving entirely, just switching to a photography business for now.  I may yet return to the mortgage biz, especially the mortgage rate forecasting one, but for now I am sticking to real estate (and other) photography.

And who says we can't meet up just for the sake of doing so?  Our paths may yet cross.

Best of luck to you as well!

I have had these domains for various time frames, some dating back to 2004 or so.  Many are developed, but I just don't have a use for them anymore and do not foresee using them in the future, though things may change. 

I have never played the "buy to resale" game, but if some of these do not sell, I may build them and see where it goes, but I do not have time to do that right now.  I am not in any rush to sell them, just thought someone else may be in need of some good domain names and I could use the money to buy more photography equipment. 

Thanks for stopping by and best of luck to you!
