You know how when you throw loose change into a jar over a couple months, the pennies and nickels ultimately add up to something meaningful….you take the jar to the bank and you walk away with $40 or $50 in bills.
That’s kind of like my domain sales in Q4; via NameJet, I sold a variety of short, liquid domains that had accumulated in my portfolio, and although the names individually weren’t highly valued, they added up to something worthwhile in the aggregate.
I generally believe these short domains will continue to rise in value, but frankly I have no idea if it will come to pass, and there is no shame in selling on the way up, if that’s what ends up happening. I hope values continue to go up, because I own alot more than I sold this quarter.
Below is a sample of my Q4 2015 domain sales (following up on last week’s discussion of Q4 acquisitions):
- A few NNN.org – Four in total, such as 009.org for $2,020 and 727.org for $2,010. I have three decent ones remaining which I’ll probably sell this year: 199, 299 and 799.org.
- A few LLL.net – Five in total, such as IPJ.net and VYH.net, which I discussed were successful flips. I only picked these up in Q3, and mentioned at the time it was my intent to sell them quickly.
- Handful of non-CHIP LLLL.com – Ten in total, such as EEKC.com for $415 and QHQI.com for $300. I have a couple dozen non-CHIP LLLL.com left, most of which are developed in other extensions, and I expect they will be long term holds.
- Couple dozen CCC.com – Such as LL4.com for $2,200 and 0RR.com for $1,400, both of which were picked up in the 3rd quarter. I also sold a bunch of my lower quality CCC.com, such as 9VU.com for $688 and 9UV.com for $1,129. I believe these CCC.com will continue to appreciate in value, but I still have around 50 remaining, and I don’t have a problem taking some profit off the table. The bulk of these domains were picked up 2-3 years ago at prices ranging from $200 – $250, and I’m playing with the house’s money for the rest of the CCC.com domains in my portfolio.
