Quartet of Six-Figure Sales Makes Sweet Music at the Top of the Latest Domain Sales Chart

People in this business have always loved to see six-figure sales. Sure, seven or eight are even better but those are out of the reach of most of us mere mortals. While getting over $100,000 for a domain name is a high bar for the average domain investor to clear, they do happen often enough to make people feel like it is a goal that is possible to reach with enough research, savvy trading, contact building and a lucky break or two along the way.

Another reason we all love sales at this level, regardless of who makes them, is that they underscore the fact that that good domains are very valuable assets - proven business 

boosters that often return their cost to savvy end users many times over. In that way, these marquee sales help all of us.

That being the case, we had an especially sweet 24-hour period last week (as reported in our Lowdown section) when we had four six- figure sales reported within that brief time span.  If you missed them then, they are back to take another bow now at the top of our latest bi-weekly all extension Top 20 Sales Chart. 

A pair of three-letter .com sales made in private transactions (by parties well-known to us who prefer to remain anonymous) led the charge with chart topper DDL.com changing hands for $359,000 and #2 GRT.com going for $336,600. Both of those sales also rank among the top 20 domain sales reported so far this year

The other sales at this level were both handled by the same veteran broker - Kate Buckley at BuckleyMedia.com, who closed a $227,002 sale of Kindness.com and one for Patience.com at $221,780. While seeing sales at this level (and higher) from Kate is never a surprise, it was especially satisfying  to see the exchange of such virtuous names credited to her. The names reflect her own personality so well it is simply poetic (fitting too since Kate is also a published poet)!

Another solid sale rounded out the first five with Andy.co.uk using Dan.com to sell 7Bet.com to a new owner in China at $86,625. The .coms went on to sweep nine of the top ten positions and 17 of 20 overall. Sedo posted five of those sales including #6 Facil.com at $43,125. NameJet put up three others and SnapNames posted two.

 

The .coms also got a boost from NameTrends.com who, with help from Venture.com, sold NewZealandTours.com for $30,000. Michael Mann's DomainMarket moved another one - #15 (tie) GloriousGaming.com at $15,000.   

The biggest non .com sale came from another familiar name, Swetha.xyz, who sold #7 Evaluate.xyz for $39,888. The ccTLDs claimed the remaining two spots. GoDaddy put #13 PV.tv on the board at $17,500 and Sedo stepped up again with a $15,000 sale of #16 (tie) Design.ae.
