As the year ended, Escrow.com shared its 2023 Domain Trends report. The report left me with a few questions primarily related to total sales volume compared to the prior year. Now that 2023 has been finalized, my question was answered. Here’s a look at a comparison between 2023 sales volume on Escrow.com vs. 2022 sales volume on Escrow.com:
2022 full figure – $411,539,415.04
2023 full figure – $383,283,044.49
When the report was sent to me, the quote of “more than $300 million USD,” in sales volume for the year caught me off guard. If volume was in the $300 million range, it would have been far lower than the prior year and indicated a sharper drop in aftermarket sales than I expected.
I don’t know if there were additional sales closed between when the report was produced and the end of the year, but $383m+ doesn’t seem all that bad all things considered.
