    It’s not mine. How did you come to this range and can you be more specific?

    Well currently for sale at sedo for 10k which i think is a steal for any end user.
    definitely worth pretty high 5 figures.

    Bids below the known reserve range don't mean ANYTHING, as there is a zero commitment with those.

    Bidding up just below reserve is for the auction game of non serious winning bidders helping with free publicity and “price discovery”

    Why do you think it's posted in "pre-purchase appraisals"? You are SPAMMING my thread

    You asked “Any other thoughts”, so I kindly provided them. That isn’t SPAM since you left the question open ended for any comment. Evidently, you thought you could disguise your auction publicity stunt.

    Nobody draws attention to their high dollar bidding activities, unless its for publicity. You bumped your auction pump again. If it was truly a real pre purchase approval, not a fake one you never would ask for public advice, and remained silent. Besides that, this is free speech and I happen to repeatedly call out such nonsense.

    My sincere apologies if you are a legit bidder actually willing to dump $250,000 or more and not afford a silent appraisal broker professional to help you. If true, You really need more than common sense, and seems very odd to see someone come here to this very public forum and publically ask for such advice. Normally this sort of thing is done in secret or through a buyer/broker. So, are you are upset I exposed you and the publicity club?

    Nobody who is serious about purchasing a premium one word.com in an auction format would open a pre appraisal thread in regards to it if they see value in the name. You are simply putting a target on your back.

    The name is listed on sedo with a listed reserve range of $250K to whatever, given all the end users out there, and all the years, the seller is maybe looking to walk away with about $215K on a worst case scenario, if they had better options along the way, they probably would not be at this point.

    Kind of like the guy who has been spamming people for sushi.com for years.

    Sure it is a good name, but it takes a special kind of buyer to pay those levels, most investors do not wish to pay $250K, and sit, and wait for an end user who may never show up. I am sure their brokers ran leads first, but came up empty, or on the low end, to finally try, and throw up an auction setting.

    I have less, and less trust with auctions in this industry, and the regulation behind them in regards to automated bidding bots, and agreements with large operators, bidding one bid under reserves, in many brick, and mortar auction houses the things that go on in domain auctions would never happen.

    Exactly, real brick and mortar auctioneers are licensed, protect their integrity with transparency and have competitor peer pressure, self govern and follow a code of ethics, unlike some of these digital platforms allowing bots, multiple bidder id’s, partnering, group bids, and exempt themselves “We are not Auctioneers” from such rules and scrutiny.

    I do see your point but I think you are being paranoid, I ask about premium domains all the time here. It’s not like the auction is a secret or something. Appreciate your feedback about silent appraisal broker. Do you know of any?

    Good point here, this is almost like game theory on psychology of bidding and pricing

    It was always going to go for that, if not more. 600k or 700k would easily be possible with this name in a private sale.
