Here are ten sales from last month that caught my attention.
NameJet’s February sales include the NamesCon auction results, so the company posted nearly $3 million in sales of domain names over $2,000 for the month. Yes, that means Super.com ($1.2 million) and Great.com ($900,000) closed!
Ignoring NamesCon, NameJet posted 59 sales of $2,000 or more for a total of just over $300,000. Here are some non-NamesCon sales that stood out to me:
PrizeFight.com $9,000 – Yikes! This domain sold for $105,556 on Afternic back in 2006. The sale is in line with more recent comps: PrizeFights.com for $12,000 in 2015 and PrizeFighters.com for $20,000 in 2010.
FishingLure.com $7,600 – Comps can be tricky!
NewJerseyHomes.com $7,500 – The same domain sold for $8,600 on NameJet about a year ago. Most of the top sales of domains ending in ‘homes’ are for city names. FortWorthHomes.com for $34,100 in 2015, AustinHomes.com for $40,000 in 2012.
SuddenlySenior.com $5,350 – You’d think aging was a more gradual process. But as I get older I ask “where did the years go?”
Duffer.com $5,001 – I imagine the buyer is thinking of this as a surname rather than the dictionary definition.
Bismark.com $4,199 – Bought as a typo? Google will only show results for BismarCk unless you tell it you’re sure you want to exclude the C.
GCapital.com $4,188 – The buyer needs to be really careful about what PPC ads they show for this domain.
Infusing.com $2,500 – Infusion would be better, but there’s a good buyer base for this domain.
AirplanesForSale.com $2,355 – I can see some domainers arguing this is worth a lot more because “if you sell just one airplane, you’ve more than paid for the domain!” Yeah, but…
Sacrifice.org $2,299 – This domain could have a religious connotation so .org make sense.
