Chicago.com was sold a couple of years ago, and George Kirikos found an IRS filing that seems to indicate it was bought for $1 million. Assuming the million dollar figure is accurate, this sale would be one of the largest reported geodomain name sales.
Chicago is one of the largest cities in the US, and it is one of the most visited cities as well. I have been several times (mostly for work when I had a corporate job), and I had a great time visiting friends in Chicago a few Summers ago.
Assuming the purchase price was $1 million, how would you describe this sale?
Way way way too cheap. If Vegas is $90M, Chicago is at least $20M if not even more than Vegas.
Way too low. Worth low-to-mid 8 figures IMO
Ridiculously low, a total steal, no thanks to some famous people in domaining drinking buckets of Kool-Aid.
(And serving it.)
Far too low
Imo all City dot com names are too cheap right now. A smart national real estate chain should be out there buying them all
Not sure I agree.
Denver.com was bought for seven figures by one of the largest real estate firms in Colorado: https://domaininvesting.com/boulevards-sells-denver-com-in-seven-figure-deal/
Although it reportedly “paid off” https://domaininvesting.com/7-figure-denver-com-purchase-its-paid-off/
Denver.com now seems to be a site focused on cannabis rather than real estate.
Just like “sex.com” is no ordinary 3 letter.com, Chicago.com is no regular geo domain.
When it comes to cities…. Chicago is a beast!
The sale price of 1M is at least 10 times cheaper. I suspect the sale to be around 10million minimum. The seller probably got compensated through other means as well. If it only 1M then the seller must have part sold and donated for a good cause as the buyer is the community trust which is not for profit.- DomainAstro.com, AroChemicals.com
