Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Sunday April 12th, 2020

First. Happy Easter to all who celebrate. Love to all of you, your families, and those you care about. Whether you celebrate it or not its still a good day to call or connect with those you care about.

Had a good sale of Happy Grow dot com that I talked about earlier and now that its complete I can talk about how it came about. The initial offer came through Efty and it was an opening offer of $5K. That was a pretty good opening offer so I knew we had a good starting point. I also knew that I paid less than $500 for it in 2018. But just because I got a good deal didn’t mean I didn’t know the value. In my industry of horticulture this is the kind of name you build a company around. It was easily worth mid five figures if somebody had the same thoughts. This company did. They were in horticulture and the more we talked the more we realized we had a lot in common and had more to talk about after the sale.

The deal did close in the low five figures. It originally was going to be the $5K downpayment and then monthly payments with a kicker at the end. Originally it was going to go through but they wanted to get the project going and getting verified there was going to take to long for them so they just wired the entire amount instead. No waiting, no monthly, the whole amount. The entire process took 2 days and I paid zero fees for the whole transaction. The perfect sale.

While COVID has hurt the economy dramatically and hurt so many local businesses, I am probably as fortunate as anyone can be. Everyone is stuck at home and wants to garden so the nursery is having a banner year and my domain sales are off to a record start as well. I almost feel guilty prospering during hard times but I do feel like I’ve worked hard to put myself in this position. I know I’ve worked hard to innovate and pivot to keep safe and still work. And domain investing was always made to provide extra income and it is. I choose plants because it was the right lifestyle for me and my family. I could have made more doing other things but its proving more than ever that it was the right choice 25 years ago. There have been days I’ve regretted doing it as my friends were making so much more money than me. They played while I worked two jobs . Nurseryman by day, domain investor by nights. But all things work out for those that push forward. And this will be the case for all businesses in these times. Just keep pushing forward and doing what you can and it will eventually work out.

  1. Congrats Shane on your great sale!

    The best part is “I also knew that I paid less than $500 for it in 2018. But just because I got a good deal didn’t mean I didn’t know the value.”

    Best wishes!

  2. Nice sale, Shane.

    I remember when you wrote about its acquisition. It’s not that you’re just being lucky as you saw the potential right from the start.

    One question, what were your lander settings when the buyer came along? Was it listed with make offer only or BIN + make offer?
