Elliot Silver just announced the recent sale of 3D.com for $500K and I don’t think I am the first to say….only $500K? Five hundred thousand dollars is a lot of money and it’s a fantastic sale for Sedo but I would have bet hard earned money it would sell for double the price. Sedo’s job is to sell names and the seller was obviously willing to sell the name at this price so everybody is happy. Perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised considering the less than steller past sales in the 3D category.
Maybe the owner needed some money and could see all the negative press 3D has been getting lately and figured he needed to sell now or he/she would have to wait for the next wave of 3D love. Whatever the scenario I still considered one of the best two character dot coms on the planet and as one commentor on Elliots Blog put it, for it to sell for $50,000 more than meet.me say something. It says that Schwartz did a hell of a job with meet.me or 3D was sold at a discount.
If the buyer was an enduser then the got a great deal. If it is a flipper then I have to believe that they are sitting at a pretty good price to make a little money. Either way, Hollywood is going to eventually end up with this domain and if they just did then that’s the last time you’ll see this domain on the market for a while.
