Question: How long do you hold onto a site before you sell it on this marketplace ?
Answer: We don’t follow a rule, but we normally will not sell a site till we have had a chance to clean up various aspects of the business, such as support forums, payment workflows and design aspects (where relevant). If a site is on sale on SiteBuyr.com, you can be rest assured that we have owned the site for a minimum of 1 month, but usually much longer.

Answer: Of course, please let us know your contact details ( at [email protected]) and we would love to chat with you over Skype or via a phone call.
Question: How long do you take to conduct your due diligence on my site if I want to sell to you ?
Answer: That entirely depends on the level of access you provide us to your site and its workings, but usually we complete our due diligence in 1 week, but can go to around 3 weeks if the business is complex and needs a thorough check. We usually undertake the checks via screen share sessions with your representatives, and also perform offline checks using publicly available tools.
