Recent Acquisitions

My Final Acquisition of 2012

75

I just completed what should be my final acquisition of 2012. This afternoon, I won the NameJet auction for PreForeclosureHomes.com. There were only 23 bidders, which is fewer than I expected. I think this will end up becoming a decent flip in the new year.

A few other recent private acquisitions (via auction and private negotiation) include the following:

  • LandscapeContractors.com
  • Distraction.com
  • SanFranciscoDogWalkers.com
  • EducationAssistance.com
  • LivestockMarket.com (or LiveStockMarket.com)

What were your final acquisitions of 2012?

Why I Share My Recent Acquisitions

11

There are a number of reasons why I share my recent domain name acquisitions with you. I thought I would give you some insight into why I do this.

The first and most important reason is because I think it’s helpful for people who read my blog to know what types of domain names I am purchasing. Readers can see what I believe are good domain names, although it is a small sample set each time I share, and perhaps they can learn a bit from my experience.

Another reason why I share my recent acquisitions is because of the potential opportunity to sell one of these domain names. I have closed at least two sales after readers saw names they liked and were able to work out a deal with me. I also encourage readers to share their acquisitions for the same reason. You never know when a domain name will pique a buyer’s interest.

By sharing some of my investments with readers (and vice versa), we are able to quickly share feedback about acquisitions. I can often gauge what will sell quickly and what might be longer term holds. This is another reason why I like sharing this with you.

I also believe sharing information about my business is a good way to show that I’m not just blogging, but I’m actually actively investing in, and selling domain names for a living. It’s easy for people to say to do one thing or another, and I sm actively involved in hid business and work every day to improve my domain portfolio.

Now that I’ve some reasons for recent acquisitions posts, I’m interested in learning what motivates you to share yours.
