I wrote a popular post a couple of days ago asking people what recent domain acquisitions they made, and that post has received 71 comments as of this afternoon. Steve Morsa followed it up with an email suggesting another post asking readers to post some of their recent sales.
At first, I was a bit hesitant to post this because I keep just about all of my sales and sales prices private. However, I don’t mind revealing some of my recent sales, albeit without sales prices.
If you’d like to post some of your recent sales with or without sales prices, feel free to do so. It’s an interesting look at what the aftermarket is doing.
Did you sell them direct or through a domain brokerage service?
Can you step us through the sales process (locating a buyer) for one or two of the names you listed above?
I’m not asking for the specific details, more so the general approach. I would like to hear about UniqueInk.com since it was a developed site.
I sold these 2 the other day.
A few recent sales, mainly end user:
MultiCurrency.com – $2,000
ImmobilienPortal.com – $3,800
WomensTops.com – $9,000
LCDFernseher.com – $2,500
GastronomieJobs.com – $5,000
QualityClicks.com – $1,000
CashmereSocks.com – $1,900
UsedFoundry.com – $1,500
StudentLockers.com – $1,500
BakeryEquipment.net – $1,400
BakingEquipment.net – $900
Bnu.com – $9,500
IronBalusters.com – $700
LiftEquipment.net – $600
UniqueInk.com was a sale to a friend who is going to use it for a blog for his wife who is into tattoos.
The others were private sales, with all but two small sales being sold by me directly. One was sold by a blog reader who had sold similar names and the second (GunCollection.com) was sold at DomainFest.
I sold addictiontreatmentservices.com for $150
the offer came through godaddy.
I paid 10 bucks for the domain a couple months back.
Thanks for the insight!
Sold DividendInvestor.ca last month for x,xxx
I sold CareClub.com to an end-user who contacted me via SEDO.
just sold doghill.com, serenitycreek.com + a few others
trying to unload casualdining.com baskingridge.com – any takers?
Sold Recently from myself
and a few I cant disclose due to nda.
I have sold and bought several others through my brokerage for select clients.
Currently looking to sell Ayr.net – Current offer of $750 USD… Looking for a Fast Sale anyone interested shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
Seal A Deal com (hand reg from December)
thanks for sharing all.
Sold – HandheldVideoGames.com at DomainFest last month. (Drop caught in Dec.)
@Rob – err, a little shameless spamming there!???!?
Good luck getting to 70+ comments on this one 🙂 I don’t spend much time selling as I am mostly buying to hold/develop… but I did sell FreeDesktopWallpaper.org via Sedo for mid $xxx and OnlineBackupSoftware.info via Bido this month.
Speaking of Bido, I was doing very good volume (for me) at the end of last year but for the extensions and keywords I deal in, Bido’s activity has really dried up. I had about 2-3 to 1 sell through rate prior to the “latest” Bido release in mid December. Since then I’m something like 0 for 15 or something crazy.
Can you do this next?
What Domain Names Have dropped Recently?
@ Michael Carter
@Kevin M – for how much???
@Andrew As the auction results were recaped in various blogs – $900.
Hi, Just sold my first one!
Ask again in six months – hopefully have good news to report!
I sold sax.com $xxx,xxx
Sold a hand-regg for $15,000 a few months back. HHOGenerator.com
Another semi developed site GarraRufa.com for about $5,500 in 3 months after I grabbed it at Snapnames for $60.
StocksToBuyNow.com several months ago. ($775)
Can anyone comment as to “how” they sold the domain?
……godaddy, forums, direct contact,etc.
Made my first profit by flipping BakingCups- and EspressoCup -both .net- for almost double regfee, both were handregs.
Since the New Year, Domain Sales have picked up dramatically (at least for me and my marketplace, http://www.MediaOptions.com). I won’t mention other members sales, but personally I have sold some of the following recently:
GreenBuildingMaterials.net (BuildingMaterials.net still for sale)
…plus quite a few other small sales (under $500)
It has been a VERY productive 2 months!
Sold StocksToBuyNow.com $xxx couples of months back.
In the past few weeks I sold:
SuperMortgages.com – $7500
SuperFlorists.com – $3000
SuperMoving.com – $7500
SuperPrinting.com – $4000
bbwpictures.com – $2000
CruiseIndustry.com – $500
PearlEarrings.com – $50,000
About 50% of the domains I sold (see above) were sold in my marketplace (http://www.MediaOptions.com). The other 50% were through contacting End Users.
There are a few exceptions which I sold either on Sedo or Godaddy and a couple with Moniker Auctions.
I forgot to mention: VisitPalermo.com Sold at Moniker Live Auction.
That will be another post later today… someone else emailed me about that yesterday.
Also, you can add Grandmom.com to the list of names I recently sold 🙂
Elda.com – 11k
Adel.com – 12.5k
ShortSaleSuccess.com – 2.6k
and now in negotiations to sell Aristocracy.com
As many people know, I’ve mainly been a high-volume $xx domain flipper, but am gradually moving upmarket. Some recent sales in $xxx & $x,xxx ranges:
Zuggie (aged brandable)
several [State]Primary .com’s (I still own most of them)
I guess I bought your KeepKosher.com, I love this domain name……I’m actually in talks with a Lubavitcher Rebbe to run a blog for me….great sale..
@ steve – nice sale re: parkstreet.com – great name – i recall it sold for $1k in oct 2008
@ Michael Carter
thanks – I did buy in 08 on Sedo
A couple more names I just recently sold:
Overwater.org (hand reg)
LobsterRolls.com (buyer has a 6 month payment plan)
If anyone is interested,I am selling AcneNatural.com. It has an Alexa Traffic Rank of 12,858,876. Will sell for 6,000. Also ILL.net for $5,000. make offer on both at email@example.com
@ steve – Glad to hear of your plans for KeepKosher.com. I really liked that name, was reluctant to let it go … but a guy’s gotta pay his renewal fees somehow! 🙂
Where could one sell an entire portfolio of nearly 600 names – mostly dot-com domain names? Aside from BuyDomains.com… Are there brokerages that deal in that sort of bulk purchase?
icookbook.com? i wouldn’t take that pos if u offered it to me for free
Good thing I didn’t ask your opinion on its value. BTW, I turned down one other profitable offer before I sold it for just under $1k.
I’ve sold hundreds this year, but one that comes to mind is BankReconciliationSoftware(com), mainly because it was free, is a very long domain (imho) and it found the perfect end user for a price that made me very, very happy. It sold less than a week after acquisition!
I need to sell a few domains, as a newbie what would be my best avenue…can someone help me out. I have small list for anyone to look at if needed.
Maybe I should have directed my question to you. As a newbie what would be the best way to sell some domains. As I would like to raise a little $$$ to purchase some more domains.
P.S. Thanks for helping me on the EndBeginning.com /.net there gone got the big refund.
I don’t mean to be rude or sarcastic with this reply, but I wouldn’t know how to sell domain names like that. I guess you should search for companies that do what you think should be done with the names and ask them.
Sorry for the misunderstanding I don’t own those names anymore there gone (endbeginning). But I would like to sell a few like.
If the above domains are junk it’s ok to let me know.
P.S. By day I am an Insurance salesman with a book of business of 2500 clients. So believe me if I can sell face to face or have people scream at me because of claims not covered or a screwed up bill etc. for the last 8 years. Nothing on a blog could really hurt my feelings. So it’s ok to tell like it is.
Thanks just a newbie…
I bought one of the domains listed in this thread (freedesktopwallpaper.org), not sure I’d want the price published though(I believe it’s against the terms in Sedo)…as it’s searchable on Google hmm
