Igloo & DomainNameSales Team Up For $600,000 Sale as Domain Market's Hot Streak Continues

So much for the summer doldrums! This is the 6th week in a row we have had at least one (in this week's case, two) six-figure (or higher) domain sales to report. Just before this week's deadline we received word that Igloo.com and DomainNameSales.com teamed up to close a $600,000 sale for ReverseMortgages.com. That news comes on the heels of Tuesday's report that Sedo sold DJI.com for $300,000 in a deal handled by their veteran senior broker Dave Evanson

That ReverseMortgages.com sale now ranks as the 2nd biggest sale reported so far this year, trailing only the $2.1 million sale of 114.com earlier this month. If you want further evidence that the high end of the market is back, I can already tell you that the weekly string of blockbuster sales will be extended to 7 next week when we will chart another blockbuster sale. The domain involved, which will move ahead of ReverseMortgages.com into the #2 spot on the Year To Date Top 100 Chart, will be revealed in a new Cover Story we will be publishing by the end of the week.

By Ron Jackson

There is much more going on that you are not hearing about due to non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). A leading broker told me this week that 90% of his company's sales of $100,000 or more this year have been subject to NDAs. Another major player told me privately that his group has sold $10 million worth of domains recently, including a group of 3 names that went for $2.5 million and another group that sold for $5.9 million, with the key asset in each group being a single great domain. It may not be time to start singing "Happy Days Are Here Again" but things are definitely looking up.

Now, getting back to the business at hand, those two six-figure sales, totaling close to a million dollars, obviously fill the first two spots on our latest weekly all-extension Top 20 Sales Chart. They also helped the .coms sweep the first 11 positions on the leader board, including #3 Yuge.com ($48,000 at DomainNameSales) and a pair of entries from Afternic - #4 DrugPrices.com at $39,500 and #5 Keka.com at $32,000.  

The .coms piled up 16 of 20 chart entries overall with the four remaining spots all going to non .com gTLDs - three of those being .infos and one a .org. The .infos on the elite list were all sold by Luc Biggs of Key-Domains.com on the Flippa.com platform and all produced sizeable profits for him. Biggs pocketed $18,900 for #12 Mortgage.info after paying just $4,600 for the domain last month at NameJet. He told me he made another $10,000 flipping #19 Homes.info for $12,230 and he scored another big gain with #20 Vacation.info, selling for $11,650 after being picked up on NameJet for just $3,000 in early June.

The only other non .com domain on the Big Board was #13 (tie) CancerVaccine.org at $18,000 via EndUserMarketing.com. The ccTLDs were uncharacteristically shut out this week with no reported sales from that category reaching five figures. 

DomainNameSales had a hand in eight charted sales to lead all venues. Also ringing up multiple chart entries were Sedo with four and Afternic and Flippa with three each. Chart honors also went to Justin Godfrey's DIS Inc. Newsletter for the $14,000 sale of #17 GulfOfMexico.com

Now, here is how all of the sales leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 28:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value cash only 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. Our procedure for verifying the accuracy of domain sales reports is available here.

Country Codes

While it was an excellent week overall the ccTLDs didn't share in the bounty this time around and that doesn't happen very often. With no five-figure sales reported in this category that left the door open for Lids.co to take the top spot on our latest Country Code Top 20 Sales Chart after changing hands for $7,500 in a private transaction. 

Sedo swept the rest of the top ten (and 18 of 20 places overall) with a roster led by #2 MonVillage.eu at $5,852 and #3 Beat.la at $5,300. HomePageBaukasten.ch at $5,187 and BabyShop.sg at $5,000 rounded out the first five. The only other venue that broke through the Sedo line was NetFleet.com.au who sold #12 MIT.com.au for $2,547

Switzerland's .ch led the extension race with four chart entries, followed by the European Union's .eu and Montenegro's .me with three each. The remaining 10 entries were split among 9 different TLDs. Here is how the country code leaders stacked up for the week ending Sunday, July 28:

A pair of .infos followed - #7 Domains.info at $7,150 (through Flippa.com for Luc Biggs) and #8 Sale.info at $6,000 (by way of Sedo). Rounding out the top 10 were CaliforniaAdoption.net ($5,500 at DomainNameSales) and Deduce.org ($3,888 at Afternic).
