    It seems like almost every time a domain gets re-listed on Flippa the highest offer of the new auction is lower than the highest offer of the previous auction. And this seems to be the case even if the domain didn’t sell the previous time either (e.g last time’s winner is not selling). Would be “nice” to see some actual data on that though.

    A.S. – I agree that there is sometimes buyer fatigue, and if a domain is continually listed, people may start to lose interest, assume it won’t meet reserve, and not bother bidding. However, if you mix things up, like changing the reserve or opening bid, or promoting the domain (rather than just listing it and hope for the best), there have been many successful sales in the repeat listings. I believe FileBackup.com was an example that didn’t meet reserve the first listing, and then sold for over $10k in the next listing.

    Indeed, it’s a combination of all of those, Aaron.

    I think it mostly comes down to how active a seller is in promoting the domain, and the domain’s pricing. Pricing expectations are more often than not out of whack, which is why so many great domains don’t sell the first time (or few times) around. We’re establishing a brokerage platform soon that will aim to address this.

    Thanks for the coverage and thoughts! See you in a few days…
