    Problem is how you get paid. They don't do escrow or anything like that, so after they close the sale you're on your own. The buyer can request cash back from paypal and you're screwed.

    If the sites are older then 2 years, I don't see why would they bother removing the links.

    Now there is a different story if they have already disavowed those links through the google webmaster tools.

    There are a lot of things that could go wrong man, just make a simple decision:

    If you like it, buy it. Satisfy yourself.

    I didn't know that.

    How can they do that and win?

    The back links to the domains are not in GoDaddy's control. They are controlled by the webmasters of the various sites that link to the domain. They may or may not delete the links in the future. Before you buy the domain check the links out in Majestic Seo and Ahrefs websites and gauge whether the links are natural or whether they have simple been setup to give the domain a temporary page rank boost (footer links or blogroll links). If they are natural and are contextual, there is a higher probability that the domain will retain the links.
