  1. Elliot, Great marketing domain, keyword always grabs a lot of attention, If I had a broker executing this sale, I would say $200K-400k…

    Everything comes down to economics, maybe seller needed to push money elsewhere, no clue, after commissions, they probably looking at $150K

  2. Agree with Ron

    Just goes to show you prices transacted nowadays appear to be what they were back in ~ 2005 (before the go-go years)

    Would appear that Dotzup are happy to get cash for any reasonable offer

    They sold for $70,000 recently

  3. I used to park with dotzup back in the day, fair payouts, and they had a great portfolio of domains, I am sure they know the metrics better than anyone on their domains, sometimes you have to take these offers, as they don’t come along everyday, I had a similar situation on a domain that is worth more where I was offered 20K, start escrow today, but I just couldn’t get more out of them, if you can source more domains, or have more in your portfolio, at the end of the day, a little safety in the bank, is worth a bit more than one less domain in your account.

  4. Dotzup selling such premium domains for peanuts its a huge redflag that the domain business is sinking…add to this sedo’s report on parking revenues and it looks like the business we are in hit an iceberg but we don’t know yet….i just hope there are enough life boats this time around….

    • For my business, parking is a inconsequential number (under $500/month). Even if I tripled my monthly PPC earnings, it wouldn’t move the needle.

      The one area it has hurt my business is that other domain investors who do rely on parking aren’t buying as much these days. End user buyers don’t really care about PPC revenue and are more concerned about the general economy.
