    Now listed on Brandbucket just shy of $9K. Are you still the registrant, or is this new owner selling at a lose after commission?

    ice******.com

    Outbound
    Sale: low $xxx

    Handregged 3 months ago with $1 promo. End user dug their heels in repeatedly offering $xx, insisting it was all it was worth to them, it's worth more based on the targeted traffic.

    After some back and forth I just said look, come up to $xxx and I'll send you the auth code. Feels like I got beat up pretty bad but I have to consider these facts.

    It was previously owned by a domain seller and listed for sale for 8 years before being dropped, they're the only obvious end user right now. I paid $1 and the deal was wrapped over a few emails. I think it was a smart choice to take the money and move on even if I did leave a little on the table. I also covered my reg fee with PPC rev.

    VR+Keyword

    $xxx outbound

    Gambling niche can't disclose name, in bound via whois.

    High $xxxx

    Hopefully have another high $xxxx sale to report soon in the ecig niche. Strong start to 2017 after 2016 ended with a slump in sales.

    I sold GrowLoan dot com last week for $1495 via Afternic ($1196 after commission) - one of many names I bought at Dotster over the summer.

    I have also had two sales on BrandBucket since late December:
    • Plankk dot com - being used for a fitness app, already has a nice site built on it
    • Chefism dot com - coming soon

    Congrats, nice sales !

    If you don't mind sharing, do you have most of your domains with Afternic BIN ? And what % of your domains is with BB ?

    I have all my Afternic names with BINs on them. I'm a huge believer in putting a BIN on everything.

    46% of my domains are at BB.

    I agree 100% with Nat - It is a fact that the sell-thru rate of average-good quality keyword .COM brand domains is significantly higher for domains priced to sell at the major marketplaces.

    For obvious reasons, it is better to leave "make offer" for the higher-end names.

    Nat - was GrowLoan (.) com part of Afternic's fast-transfer network - or did you have to unlock and supply the AUTH code?

    Yes, it was Fast Transfer. It was already in the buyer's Enom account by the time I read the e-mail that it had sold.

    Great stuff. I take it both Dotster/MyDomain are partners of Afternic's Premium Network?

    Small sales to report, but I'm happy about it:

    Roofers/Dublin in king
    $89 BIN through Afternic
    Purchase price: reg fee, $10
    Regged in may or june 2016

    Did outbound on the name, no replies from end users.
    Decided that all my geo domains with no outbound replies were to be dropped this year so I put them on Afternic with a $89 Bin in November or December.

    So instead of dropping, I got just over $70 from this sale, which is always nice and can be used for a dropcatch or 3 closeouts.

    Weed/shop in io
    Regged september 2016 for $39
    Sold through Afternic in December 2016
    BIN price: $89
    Sale price: $60

    Just glad it got sold. It had a few end users but it was a gamble, I wanted to test the .io extension. Kind of regretted regging it, so I am glad I got my funds back.

    2017 for me is about damage control of my hopeful regs in 2016 (where I started domaining) and ending up with a portfolio I really like and has limited scale (aiming for around 100 domains max).

    No I just mean his threads and I asked him a question and ended up selling it when I took his advice

    Small sale for me again on Afternic.

    Domain name: VeganCakeMix.com
    Listing type: Afternic BIN
    Sale price: $99 ($79 net after fees)
    Purchase price: $18 (GD closeouts in 2016)
    Net Profit: $61

    I am currently liquidating my domains on NamePros for $20 each. But at the same time, the domains are also all listed on Afternic for $99 and a few are a bit more expensive.

    It was pleasant to have this sale. It is just a small amount, but its better than nothing, knowing I would have let it expire in one month.
