7-Figure Sales Streak Reaches 6 Reports in a Row - Latest One Leads New DNJ Chart at $2,500,000

The streak is still alive! For the 6th consecutive edition of our bi-weekly domain sales report, a 7-figure sale headlines our all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. This time veteran broker Larry Fischer at GetYourDomain.com gets the credit after closing a $2,500,000 deal for Marketing.com, with his long time friend and partner, pioneering domain attorney Ari Goldberger (ESQwire.com) handling the escrow. This sale, that we first reported in our Lowdown section Monday (August 16), is the second biggest publicly reported sale of the year to date

 

The identity of the Marketing.com buyer initially was not revealed, but Theo Develegas at DomainGang.com quickly discovered that it went to one of America's top printing, marketing 

and logistics services companies, Color Art. James Iles at JamesNames.com further corroborated Theo's information and added some additional details of his own.

The #2 spot on our latest bi-weekly all extension Top Sales 20 Chart goes to Braden Pollock at LegalBrandMarketing.com who added to his long list of top tier sales by moving WorldClass.com for $400,000.  Another nice six-figure sales was turned up by - who else - George Kirikos!. While reading through an SEC filing made by the buyer, Bowman Consulting Group Ltd, Kirikos learned they had purchased #3 Bowman.com for $281,000 earlier this year. Soon after George shared the news, Hobi Michalec at Lumis.com confirmed his brokerage firm represented the buyer in the transaction.

George also gets the credit for finding the #4 sale of CyberWarfare.com at $85,000 in another SEC filing and he still wasn't through. In yet another, he learned that Kin.com and Kin.co were sold as a package for $307,000. Since the filing did not break out the specific prices paid for each domain, we can't chart them, but my guess would be that Kin.com would have been at least as big as Bowman.com, probably bigger. 

In addition to these important recent sales, George's spadework unearthed yet another previously unreported blockbuster from past years. As he reported on his FreeSpeech.com blog, Kirikos discovered that Better.com was sold for $1,820,000 in 2015. With that verification in hand, with have added Better.com to the 2015 Top 100 Sales Chart in our Domain Sales Archive where it now ranks as the 3rd biggest sale reported for that year. Our thanks again to George for the amazing work he has done in bringing so many of these great sales to light.

Getting back to this week's leader board, Sedo completed the top five with FastFood.com at $65,000. They went on to pile up 11 chart entries overall, including both of the ccTLDs that crashed the .com party on the Big Board. Those were #13 GPP.de at 12,000 ($14,040) and #18 Improve.ch at 9,500 ($11,115).

The non .com gTLDs also claimed two places on the elite list, led by Logan Flatt's $50,000 sale of #6 SmartContracts.org from his company portfolio at Media Code LLC. The 2nd chart entry from this category is #19 Guns.club at $10,429 via RU-CENTER

Everything else went to the .coms with BigHit.com contributing #11 GetBreeze.com to the mix and Mike Mann's DomainMarket.com kicking in two others - #12 SouthernCharmRealty.com at $15,000 and #14 PODGuides.com at $13,000.
