Gosh, I’m surprised how folks are almost giving their domains away.
Why sell so low on some of these?
Appreciate these posts on end-user sales.
PLEASESIGN.COM was a steal at 1k.
Love seeing a company like RightSignature picking up several in the same space. Someone, or maybe multiple someones in their marketing department are using their noggins.
well with the ending in 88 we know who is selling off their inventory cheap, for end user sales, these prices are cheap all these $1-2K domains should be selling for double.
This is interesting:
“Entrepreneur Magazine, bought EntrepreneurAwards.com for $2,088”
The magazine has a reputation:
This shows that at least they are willing to pay roughly the cost of a UDRP filing (w/o legal fees) in order to get a domain name.
Yea I am kind of surprised these went for so little. I can only assume that since they didn’t know who they were selling to (Afternic) – they settled.
