The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the past year that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
VidaHotels.com sold for $9,999 at Sedo, and the domain was an upgrade from the hyphenated Vida-Hotels.com, which has two hotels in Dubai. “Vida Downtown Dubai is a boutique upscale hotel concept.

Speaking of hyphens, Nursery-Rhymes.com sold for $6,000 at Sedo, and the new owners are developing a sing-a-long app for kids. Hyphenated sales in the mid to upper 4-figures are harder and harder to come by, even when the keywords here have search volume of over 450,000 per month, per Estibot.
