Favorites.com Sold for $165k – Did .CO Owner Buy It?

According to a post Mike Mann made on my Facebook wall, his company sold Favorites.com for $165,000. The domain name had been previously listed for sale at Domainer Mardi Gras in 2009, but it did not sell.

The new registrant of Favorites.com has privacy protect on the domain name, so I can’t be sure about  who owns it. However, the message on the landing page is that same message that is also on Favorites.CO as well as on f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e-s.co (in fact, Favorites.CO forwards to f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e-s.co but Favorites.com does not). Favorites.CO and f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e-s.co are both owned by an Andy Weinstock.

While we’re discussing this, I want to give some advice to domain investors. Go through old auction sales lists to see what names didn’t sell and are still owned by the same people. Now might be a good time to contact them and make an offer.
