Nov 22 2015

Below is another look at a few recent domain flips and flops, with data courtesy of NameBio.

Flips

FourFold.com sold for 2,455 USD recently at BuyDomains, vs 360 USD on 2015-07-14 at GoDaddy. That would be nearly seven fold, in four months.

.

Pedal.com sold for 25,000 USD recently at Flippa, vs 8,100 USD on 2011-08-09 at Sedo. Interestingly, it looks like it was sold by an online car sales company residing at Peddle.com. Transfer hasn’t occurred yet.

.

BBOO.com sold for 18,400 USD recently at NameJet, vs 2,225 USD on 2011-02-26 at Sedo.

.

BXLH.com sold for 2,314 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 115 USD on 2014-11-13 at GoDaddy. 20x before commissions in a year.

.

SNYY.com sold for 2,351 USD recently at Sedo, vs 135 USD on 2014-10-06 at GoDaddy. 17x before commissions in a year.

.

Rested.com sold for 7,000 USD recently at Sedo, vs 1,101 USD on 2011-08-01 at Sedo.

.

GXV.com sold for 23,000 USD recently at NameJet, vs 8,450 USD on 2015-01-26 at NameJet. Nearly 3x before commission this year. I didn’t think the wholesale value of LLL.com with a “V” was this high yet.

.

Flops

BusinessGrants.com sold for 9,300 USD recently at NameJet, vs 10,600 USD on 2015-07-14 at NameJet. I’m not sure what prompted the second sale only four months later, but this quick flip didn’t go well. Loss of around $1,700 after commission.

.

FirstMedical.com sold for 3,600 USD recently at NameJet, vs 3,800 USD on 2015-07-31 at GoDaddy. Same as above —- a second sale in less than 4 months, and including a 15% commission, the loss is around $750.

.

USMT.com sold for 1,360 USD recently at NameJet, vs 1,600 USD on 2015-04-22 at NameJet. Who said you couldn’t lose money on LLLL.com domains?

.

AirCars.com sold for 1,280 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 2,850 USD on 2012-01-04 at Afternic.

.

CostumesForHalloween.com sold for 926 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 16,500 USD on 2012-03-28 at Afternic. Ouch. Previously developed, with the screenshot below courtesy of Archive.org.

Note: I didn’t do an exhaustive search of the ownership history of each domain. There are likely cases where there were multiple owners between the sales prices I list.
