RealEstate.net Tops Trio of Six-Figure Sales in Big Week for the Domain Market
  

OK, recess is over! After taking a rare "breather" last week, the domain market was back in full stride this week, racking up three six-figure blockbusters and two dozen solid five-figure sales. The penthouse suite on our new Top 20 chart goes to RealEstate.net at a nifty $300,000

A new Australian company, Real Estate.NET Holdings Pty Ltd, acquired the marquee domain in a private transaction. The company was formed by a team that operates Rooms.net and Local.net. The company said it plans to extend its market reach and develop RealEstate.net into a worldwide agent solutions network, focusing initially in the U.S.

The first completed deals from the recent Moniker.com live auction at the Internext Expo in Las Vegas were also announced this week and that event produced another six-figure sale  - BDSM.com at $295,000. Moniker/DomainSystems also sold one - Yearbook.com at $237,500. Overall, Moniker accounted for eight positions on the elite list (five from their live auction) and had six of the top ten, including #4 TeenModels.com at $80,000.

Sedo.com had their usual strong performance, placing four domains on the Big Board, including #6 MissRussia.com at $50,000. BuyDomains.com charted three times enroute to a huge week that included three more five-figure sales just off  the chart and hundreds of solid four-figure sales. Their Name Media sister company, Afternic.com, also had a nice outing with two charted domains, including #7 MyMag.com at $48,888.

SnapNames.com hit the top half of the chart with #10 Rumble.com at $31,283. The final opening on the all extension list went to #19 Newswires.com which was purchased by the owner of Macau.com for $15,000 in a private transaction. 

If it weren't for that .net in the #1 position (a sale that is also the biggest to date in 2007), .com would have swept the field this week. Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, Feb. 4:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both.

Global Contenders (.biz, .info, .mobi, .net & .org)

RealEstate.net was a runaway winner on the Global Contenders chart this week. The $300,000 sale was not only the largest in the GC category so far this year, it was biggest sale in any extension for 2007 to date. .Net dominated the chart this week, sweeping 12 of 22 positions (there were two extra slots due to a three-way tie for the final position). 

.Biz blossomed in the #2 spot thanks to the $8,000 sale of Traffic.biz at Afternic. .Org then stepped to the plate at #3, scoring the first of three charted domains for that extension with IHO.org, sold for $6,200 at BuyDomains. BuyDomains claimed 12 of the 22 entries to lead all venues. 

.Mobi is still seeing steady activity and put four names on the list, led by #9 iPoker.mobi, a domain that went for $3,050 at Sedo. .Pro also got on the board with #16 Photography.pro snapping $2,210 at Sedo. Here's how all of the GC top sellers stacked up for the week ending February 4:
