Daily Market Report for June 15th – FP.org sold for $13,201

The top sale of the day was FP.org which sold for $13,201 at Flippa. NameBio recorded 162 sales for a total of $98,769 with an average sale price of $610. Compared to the previous day there was an increase of 9% in the number of sales and the total dollar amount increased by 22%.

There have been three other LL.org sales in the past month, OF.org sold for $10,601 at Flippa, PJ.org sold for $10,001 at NameJet, and ZB.org sold for $10,099 at Sedo. I was surprised to see FP do so much better than OF, but I guess that is the difference between having Ali Zandi of Perception selling the name and everyone else. Promotion level makes a difference.

Daily Market Report for June 13th – CasasBahia.com sold for $22,850

The top sale of the day was casasbahia.com which sold for $22,850 at DropCatch. NameBio recorded 113 sales for a total of $81,085 with an average sale price of $718. Compared to the previous day there was a decrease of 19% in the number of sales and the total dollar amount decreased by 30%.

Casas Bahia is a large retailer in Brazil which sells home appliances and furniture and operates on the .com.br. They’re very popular and have over one million likes on Facebook and their Alexa rank is 3,416 as of today. It’s disappointing to see another trademark domain fetching a high price, we saw it earlier in the week with several GMail typos and also FordMustang.com which dropped today and went to SnapNames.

Daily Market Report for June 11th – Cirina.com sold for $7,500

The top sale of the day was cirina.com which sold for $7,500 at Sedo. NameBio recorded 180 sales for a total of $139,886 with an average sale price of $777. Compared to the previous day there was an increase of 3% in the number of sales but the total dollar amount decreased by 1%.

44477.com sold for $7,000 at NameJet. It’s not every day you see a five-number .com as the second highest sale of the day, especially not one with so many fours. But the pattern makes this one memorable and thus valuable. It last sold at Sedo on April 29th and the owner was able to take $2,400 profit off the table.

Daily Market Report for June 10th – FengMai.com sold for $8,950

The top sale of the day was FengMai.com which sold for $8,950 at DropCatch. NameBio recorded 173 sales for a total of $138,729 with an average sale price of $802. Compared to the previous day there was an increase of 7% in the number of sales but the total dollar amount decreased by 15%.

Feng Mai appears to be a first and last name combination, I can’t find anything else in Google or Pinyin translators indicating it has another meaning.

Edit: KC left a great comment below explaining the meaning of Feng Mai. Thanks KC!

There were three typos of GMail that closed for four figures which was disappointing to see.

Daily Market Report for June 9th – Vinous.com sold for $25,000

Sedo had the top four sales yesterday and also had the top sale for two days in a row. The top sale of the day was vinous.com which sold for $25,000. NameBio recorded 160 sales for a total of $161,224 with an average sale price of $1,008. Compared to the previous day there was a decrease of 4% in the number of sales and the total dollar amount decreased by 7%.

Vinous is a word meaning “of, relating to, or made with wine” and there are a number of end users who would consider this an upgrade. The WHOIS hasn’t changed yet from the previous owner in Korea who picked it up in April 2011 when it expired. The domain was originally created in January of 2000.

Daily Market Report for June 8th – NKB.com sold for $31,000

Sedo had the top two sales yesterday. The top sale of the day was NKB.com which sold for $31,000 followed by 5082.com at $14,500 and Mable.com at $7,100. NameBio recorded 163 sales for a total of $162,548 with an average sale price of $997. Compared to the previous day there was an increase of 46% in the number of sales and the total dollar amount increased by 129%.

Mable caught my attention because it’s not every day you see a first name domain up for auction. We wrote an article back in April showing what other first name domains have sold for, and based on that a reasonable price seemed to be $1 per person who had that name in the US.

The census data shows more than 60k people named Mable which means the domain sold for closer to 1/10th of that number. It seems to be a solid buy despite it being a name you might expect to hear on the Andy Griffith Show, and it was also a 3x flip for the previous owner.
