The Daily recap of Shane’s Auction Picks, the 6th of January
I hesitate to even talk about this, but what the heck, why not. I think that most discussion on any topic has value. Through dialogue we learn things about others and ourselves, both good and bad. We can evaluate character to a certain degree through both spoken and written word. We can encourage, discourage, motivate, or hinder through communication. It’s beneficial to understand the other person’s point of view, not because you need to agree with them, but rather to enlighten us as to their intent, motives and biases. Understanding why someone is saying something or why they have a certain viewpoint is invaluable.
When I say that “most” discussion has value it infers that some has no value or perhaps value that’s not readily apparent. When we discount something right away, maybe because the person is just f-ing irritating, we might miss something important. The things we might miss are not necessarily in what they’re saying but maybe in what they’re not saying or possibly in their motives for saying things that are illogical.
Ok, so these points are just my general thought process in reading or participating in any sort of discussion, and not indicative of my following thoughts. Just thoughts, not facts, I could wake up tomorrow, have an epiphany, sit bolt upright and realize that my thoughts were total crap.
I can’t help but look at bubble and manipulation talk and think that the only manipulators that I see are those screaming doom and gloom at the top of their lungs. There’s no better way to shake prices up than to instill fear in a group of people that are listening and trying to learn. Any market relies to a certain degree on confidence. Trying to shake market confidence, like it’s your job, might make you the problem, not just a doomsday Prophet. If I was a shrewd, unethical manipulator there would be no better way for me to reap the benefits of fear over and over again. I would buy during the peak of fear, stop talking while waiting for the price to rise, sell and then try and scare the shit out of everyone again.
This seems like a fundamental of any buyer’s negotiation. Watch American Pickers or Pawn Stars, when they’re negotiating the price they don’t praise the object. Instead they look for flaws they tell the seller about the flaws, they present evidence for the flaws in order to get a better price. When they go to sell the object, I imagine that the flaws are minimized, not talked about or never existed in the first place.
The comparison to the housing bubble is just plain ludicrous. Every time I hear someone talk about the housing bubble and compare it to domains, it makes me want to punch babies in the face. (that is not true and a horrible joke) I bought rentals in 2005 after I got back from Iraq so I had a little bit of money. (I was not a soldier, just a contractor)
The banks were setting money on fire. I paid cash and used a credit card for the first house I bought, it was a HUD foreclosure. I went to my bank a week later to open an equity line since there was no lean on the house at all. They asked what it was worth, I told them a number well over double what I had paid for it the previous week. A random number that I thought it might be worth after a tiny bit of work. They gave me an equity line at prime of 85% LTV. So I bought a house and got almost triple spendable equity in 2 weeks total with closing.
Then I did it again. Appraisers appraised to contract, banks gave money to me and anyone who wanted it. Don’t have a debt to income ratio that works? Who cares here’s some money. There were numerous factors and politics involved in the housing bubble, but It was not built on any kind of sound business principles, and it was people using other people’s money to buy the overpriced assets.
Now take a look at domains. Yes I believe that there are those trying in whatever way to make money manipulating domains and anything they can. There are fear mongers shouting at whoever will listen too, but it’s not even the same sport. No one is offering me low interest money to buy domains for inflated prices. They’re not overlooking my debt to income ratio, or credit score, because lenders don’t exist in my domain world. Anything I buy right now is based on some idea of what I think gives a domain value. Maybe this changes as we learn, but the fundamentals of short, meaning, pattern are all there.
If all my LLLL.com’s 5n.com’s 6n.com’s are worth $ nothing tomorrow I will still come out ahead. It would suck lol, but the only thing that would be lost are the profits I’ve already reaped, minus the money I’ve already spent on other things. For any manipulators to completely destroy the domain market for some sort of short term gain seems crazy and impossible. They want it to thrive. Even if they shake it up and down, they still want it to trend up.
Anyway, anyone still reading this that hasn’t fallen asleep or slit their wrists, here’s the auction results.
8Way.com Sounds like a Amy Schumer joke but 8 in a short domain always means money
Ends in 3 Days
SSTW.com 18 year old LLLL.com with a repeating S. A good investment IMO
ZombieJuice.com 17 years old. Actually makes a pretty fun brand. Certainly memorable. If you name your liquor this it would probably sell well
577 USD Could be vape juice brand. Sounds like some kind of underground illegal beverage that all the kids are doing. “hey! not so loud, this Zombie Juice isn’t exactly street legal., Ok 2 pints for $100, Leave the money under that rock, You were never here.”
SexInLasVegas.com Just throwing this out there for you NamesCon folk. Just putting this name up here could get me at worse divorced, at best cut off for a few weeks. Be careful. No bidders
Hmmm seems this name was built out right after it sold. All it says is “call me next week and there’s a phone number. Looks like it’s an Ontario area code.
DebtNegotiators.com Plural makes it a directory but its a keyword that pays very very well
898 USD I’m surprised this didn’t go higher. There are tons of these and they spend a lots and lots of money on marketing.
HHMMC.com 16 years old. My opinion only but the kind of pattern that is going to be worth a lot more down the road. Of course, if you listen to me you will lose all your money and have to make a living refilling the sand in the ashtrays outside the Stratosphere
120 USD Nice one, AA BB and then the popular C at the end
CNB2.com and CNB3.com Just pointing out these types are getting bids and selling now. What you do with that data is up to you.
Not reported. You don’t need to buy an 4L.com Chip to participate in the Chinese Bubble. Get in cheap with CCCC.com It’s short, can have meaning and pattern. If the damn .BIZ anything is selling for hundreds and thousands of $$$ than any crazy 4C.com combination has value. IMO
EBMA.com Great Western letters. Take advantage of the fact that the vowels are still behind in value. Still has the same end user value
2248 USD and it’s pronounceable. All of these will be worthless next week, please sell them to me for $100. I’m only doing it because I have a kind heart and don’t like to see others suffer. I will bear your loss and help you salvage a little dignity with the $100.
FUPY.com These names always get me. I feel like there should be another P to make it work. Yet it always sells for a great price
1,645 USD I read it as FU Pie. Why would anyone hate pie?
8BL.com The snowman always gets the money
4,617 USD. That is awesome. Almost 5K
Waijing.com Wow, this is going to sell for a lot of money. Why? Because its a name that a lot of people like and know
10,817 USD I did not know about it till now. A google kept trying to change it to Waiting or Wailing
I’m going to try something different today. Since there are so many 5N.coms today and there is not such thing as a bad 5N.com I put all of them in a nice list. Easy to sort and use……………..I think
16766.com But before we get to the list I thought I would point out this gem of the group
45066.com 1,012 USD
41017.com 628 USD
45014.com 610 USD
