Editor's Note: I was away last week covering the Merge! conference in Orlando (you can see our daily photos and highlights from the show in our Lowdown section). As a result there was no sales column last week. Instead I will have a double length column for you this week that will be published Wednesday evening (October 25). That will bring you completely up to date on all sales reported since our last column below from October 11.

Larry Fischer Lands a 7-Figure Blockbuster! Latest Chart Topper Ranks Among Year's 5 Biggest Sales 

I was away taking some vacation days last week so I have two weeks worth of sales data for you this time out. A lot of good things happened in the aftermarket while I away was including a blockbuster 7-figure sale I just confirmed today. In that one veteran domain investor/broker Larry Fischer (GetYourDomain.com) closed a $1,200,000 sale of MyWorld.com for seller Anything.com. That is one of the five biggest sales reported so far this year and the fifth to break the seven-figure barrier. That is not new territory for Larry, an industry pioneer who has been involved in an extraordinarily large number of high end transactions. The vast majority of those have never been made public due to non-disclosure agreements.

In another nice sale, Kate Buckley at Buckley Media Group (representing the seller) and Amber Burke at Flippa.com (representing the buyer) worked together to complete a $225,000 deal for Agenda.com. That ranks among the 20 biggest sales so far in 2017. Kate now has three of the year's 20 highest sales to date.

The week's biggest five-figure sales share both a keyword (actually a key number in this case) as well as the #3 position on the Big Board. Clark Siegelin at DomainProducts.com sold Wealth365.com for $60,000 while NameJet banked the same amount for the week's top ccTLD sale - 365.tv. Clark holds one of the world's biggest collections of prime "keywords+365" domains (numbers like 360, 247 and 24 are also popular with .com investors who have used  this kind of  pattern to rack up sales). Siegelin (who used Sedo's escrow service for this sale) said this was the highest price paid to date for a keyword+365 domain.

Another NameJet sale - Everex.com at $50,205 rounded out the first five. After that three-letter .coms took center stage with nine names filling over half of the remaining slots. NameJet racked up all nine of those with a group led by #6 BEF.com at $39,000. That run helped the .coms sweep 15 of the 20 chart entries.

The remaining five spots on the leader board all went to country code domains - a group that is continuing to have a very solid year. Nidoma.com and GritBrokerage.com each accounted for two of those charted ccTLD sales. Nidoma scored with #13 Park.it ($29,090) and #16 Take.it ($23,801) while Grit rang up $25,000 for #14 Sequence.co and $22,500 for #19 Urban.co.

That left no room for the non .com gTLDs this week though the category did have two five-figure sales that are included in the more than two dozen additional sales in that range that are listed after the Top 20 Chart below.
