$600 afternic BIN
If I recall correctly, purchase price was about $25 from an expiring auction about 2 years ago.
I have the plural version too (ends with 'events', I'm going to toss an even lower BIN on it for a few days and see what happens.)
I've been playing around with pricing, dropping some names to levels that I think are too tempting for people to pass up if they stumble across it. Definitely leaving some money on the table if you've seen my other recent sales posted here, but my sell through % has been incredible.
Until a few days ago, this name was priced in the $1200 range. I wonder if lowering it is what got it sold, or if this end-user would have bought it anyways. Would they have paid 5k? 10k? I'll never know.
It seems like good inventory is getting harder to come by, so I'm likely going to try leaving more names un-priced. It's nice to get $600-$900 sales fairly regularly on a portfolio that's only had about 30-40 names in it until very recently...
But if I'm pricing things at tempting BINs, I'll never break through and get my first sale over 1k, let alone those multi-thousand dollar sales. Anyways, thanks for reading, I like to ramble a bit and give my perspective when something sells, I'm still very inexperience and always open to feedback.
Can I suggest waiting for the WHOIS refreshes with the new owners info (assuming it is not placed on privacy) and market the plural to them. Going direct you avoid the market commission and they would probably want to protect a competitor from getting it.
It was a make offer listing. There wasn't a fixed price.
opening offer $250, it was easy to do research on the buyer, distinctive, uncommon name, I could not imagine why he wanted Gamut.io, I countered at $888 he came back $700, I accepted.
Purchased at Name.com in their expiring names, for the lowest price rung for .io $58.99 on 4/30/2019.
Beagle / .cc $299
Via Afternic BIN
Purchased it right here on NamePros, in the Bargain bin for $5 in mid June
No offense... your counter was bit low...I would have countered $2500 at least, it's a dictionary word and .io buyers are all tech companies... recently got an offer on two Crypto words combo .io name of $100 countered $20k...now at $1100 will sale higher but the buyer is reluctant... anyways, congrats
I cared nothing about the name, wanted it gone, and from researching the person I don't believe they were ever coming anywhere close to $1,500 let alone $2,500. I am happy with 11x on names that mean absolutely nothing to me.
Granted . App $900. Cost 12+12. GD Auctions make offer.
Domain Name: I/n/s/I/d/e/S/h/I/p/p/I/n/g in King 9/19
Acquired: 9/18 Netsol Hand Reg
Venue: Sedo Make Offer / Initial $50 offer and got up to $600 but I pushed for $1000 and went cold for 2 weeks. Offer then came in for $300 and thinking it was same buyer I countered at $600. They countered for $500 and I agreed. $100 lesson learned..
Profit: Less the $75 Sedo Fee and the Reg
Handreg at fasthosts promo. plus 2 renewals. Afternic 2495 bin
Congratulations!!! I just tried to check this domain with appraisal tool and it showing this domain name is worth nothing! Also keyword tool shows zero results in monthly searches! This sale is showing to us we have to be focused on our own intuition! This name is catchy and someone will want to own it too!
For each sale, would be interesting to know if there are any additional expenses incurred on premium listings, if any

My first xxxx sale
Posting some recent and past personal sales after a very long time.
Almost all Afternic sales were BIN and DAN sales were make offer listings. Most of the sales were result of outbound emailing. Bought some average domains in 2016 and 2017 on high prices so was happy to let them go on less profit.
Current portfolio is under 200 domains. 75 .com domains and the rest .co or .info domains i bought in promos. Not buying .co anymore because of .co premium pricing. Few months ago i had around 200 .co domains and i let them expire. Most of them bought at 0.99 GD promo. Focusing more on brokerage nowadays.
Anybody relying only on the tools you mentioned isn’t doing this right. Appraisal tools mean nothing especially with brandables.
