According to a tweet this morning (embedded above), Sedo broker Dave Evanson has brokered the sale of FlashCards.com for $250,000. FlashCards.com has been registered under privacy protection at Fabulous since 2009, so I am unable to share information about the buyer or the seller. I will attempt to reach out to the company that owned the name back in 2009 to see if they were the sellers and if they can provide any details.
I reached out to Dave Evanson to see if he could share any additional information about the sale, and he was unable to do so. He let me know that the buyer is an end user buyer, so I would assume this domain name will be used at some point in the future. As of this morning, the domain name is still parked, but perhaps the usage of the domain name will shed light on who bought it.
$250,000 seems like an excellent price for this domain name. In February of 2009, Ron Jackson reported that FlashCards.com sold for $40,200 at a NameJet auction. After the sales commission was paid (assuming the owner was the NameJet buyer), somewhere around $175,000 in profit was made between the original purchase and this sale, not including pay per click revenue that was earned or renewal costs during the last few years.
Congratulations to the parties in this transaction.
