The Brannan’s auction is ending today, and I want to share my top five names based on the posted reserve prices. The company is using Proxibid to host the auction, so you’ll need to sign up for an account to place any bids.
I asked David Clements, founder of Brannan’s for his thoughts on the auction. “We worked hard to bring domain buyers good deals. I feel really good about the 50 names we have for sale. If anyone reading this needs inventory, we’ve got names and we’ve got them at low prices, too.”
I also asked Clements how he thinks the auction was going to play out, and he was very optimistic. “We expect a lot of activity and bidding is going to be interesting to watch since our auction ends today. Our Returning Visitor percentage has spiked so the same people are coming back again and again to decide what they want to bid on. I think that this is going to be Brannan’s best and biggest auction to date.”
My top five picks for the auction are the following names:
- BullRiders.com Reserve Range: 3,000 USD to 4,000 USD
- OfficeRentals.com Reserve Range: 40,000 USD to 50,000 USD
- Renovate.com Reserve Range: 50,000 USD to 100,000 USD
- Scrimmages.com Reserve Range: 1,000 USD to 2,000 USD
- Taxidermist.com Reserve Range: 10,000 USD to 20,000 USD
My two favorites are probably OfficeRentals.com and Taxidermist.com.
The first one is great because office rentals in large cities like NYC are very expensive and competitive. You can expect to pay a minimum of $1,500/month for a single person office in my neighborhood.
Taxidermists.com is great because most taxidermists are individuals, and it’s something people who do it are proud professionals. I could see someone wanting it for egotistical reasons, not to mention that taxidermy can be a fairly lucrative profession.
What are your top picks?
