Domain sales in the second quarter of this year were much more robust than the acquisitions I discussed last week. It’s an imbalance that occurred in my Q1 sales and purchases as well, but I’d like to get closer to evening things out by the end of the year.
Here are some of my Q2 sales:
OJQ.com – Private transaction. Similar to my statements about my sales of VYH.com and VJZ.com in Q1, I could get more for the domain today, but I don’t have any seller’s remorse. This domain was acquired in mid-2013, back when wholesale LLL.com prices were in the $3-4,000 range.
777.asia – I’ll spare you the details, but I mistakenly bought it last year. I then sold it at a loss, just to be rid of my accidental purchase, but the buyer flaked out. The second time around, I sold it via NameJet for a few hundred dollar profit. Better to be lucky than good.
Handful of NNN.org – Such as 375.org for $1,500, 878.org for $1,311 and 949.org for $550, all via NameJet. I picked up a portfolio of NNN.org in Q1 2015 and planned to flip them. I still have three or four good ones left over, and it’s gravy at this point when compared to my original acquisition price.
Handful of LLLL.com – Mostly sold via NameJet, such as UAFO.com for $410, LZFQ.com for $360, and AYEV.com for $230. Similar to the NNN.org above, I picked up a portfolio of 80 or so LLLL.com in Q1 2015 and planned to flip them. I have about 10 left from the portfolio acquisition that I will hold onto for awhile.
Couple LLL.net – Including CMX.net and LJM.net, for around $1,000 each. After these sales, I no longer have any liquid .net domains…now it’s down to a couple keyword .net domains that I put minisites on 4-5 years ago; those continue to pay for their annual renewals via Adsense earnings.
About a dozen CCC.com – Such as 9NN.com for $4,520, 01D.com (NNL) for $2,510, P1Z.com for $454, and 1P6.com for $415. Most were sold via NameJet, but I also sold 3NM.com through Domain Name Sales to a company that is using it as a shortener for their new “Three And More” project (screenshot below). Acquisition dates ranged from three months to three years ago.
You’re welcome to share any of your recent sales, or offer constructive criticism on any of mine above.
