    Indeed, Well done. I like the word and you can easily see it going to work. but that's still a great end-user price in todays uk market - would have probably made just a couple of hundred on domainlore. Was there much negotiation on reaching that price ??, either way thanks for sharing

    I could just look, but figure worth adding inthread.

    Did it include rights / .uk ?

    More importantly did .uk even come up or play any part ?

    Nice sale, was it a sale generated through outreach or a direct enquiry ?

    Looks like it did include .uk rights.

    Nice branding for a sofa company.

    Contact came direct, their was an old magento ecommerce site on it, it did zero rev, negotiations started low x,xxx with me going back at just into £xx,xxx , probably about 3 or 4 emails going to and back, then agreed on the price, all done and dusted in about 48 hours. .UK didn't play a part until I mentioned it.

    I think I picked the domain up off a member on here back in 2011 for about £350 I believe

    Pretty happy with the sale, agree that it's great branding for a sofa company and that's their plan I believe.

    I did originally have plans to dropship sofa/furnitures, hence the Magento site on it, however never had time, I also had a plan to sell super comfy clothing, but always swayed to building a brand for that idea on Comfys.co.uk

    I look at them probs once a week, if I wasn't London based I'd have got one, just can't really justify it when I currently use my car about once a month!

    There was me thinking he wanted to move to the Cayman Islands until I read further on. Hope you saw sense and sold your slot, but don't tell me. :)

    Even more reason to get one! You will add no miles to it and have minimal maintenance and petrol costs!

    Congrats on the sale!

    No it wasn't escrow'd , think a mutual trust was there from the start, buyer was London based, so was I etc.
    Depreciation would still be kicking in though, albeit it less as less mileage on it, but still it'd be a bit of a waste just sat there
