Dude, easily one of the best series of posts in the game. Thanks so much!
Domainers are leaving tons of money on the table with these very low sale prices to end-users, who obviously could easily pay much more.
Maybe it’s mostly the result of setting ‘BIN’ prices instead of ‘make offers’ so you don’t have an opportunity to negotiate based on who the buyer is.
These sales say a lot about not establishing low fixed prices, and also how you should know the buyers identity if negotiating.
P.S. Why does it appear so many sales reported here or elsewhere end with 88?

@ David – BuyDomains prices much of its own inventory to end with 88
