Seems like a good result for both parties, especially given the business the buyer's already doing on the back of BedroomFurniture.co.uk.
I imagine that they will save a small fortune on ads if they decide to go down the radio/TV route - it is as attention-grabbing as it's possible to get in the sector!
Who was the seller?
I presume it may have been Dayline because ten years ago it resolved to a web site they operated according to archive.org.
Couldn't agree more about building a good business on a top-end generic (obviously).
But $700k. Jesus.
I believe the furniture.co.uk domain name buyer is https://www.duedil.com/company/06874591/r-a-g-s-uk-limited. See how they compare with the company behind, for example, Furniture123.com/.co.uk https://www.duedil.com/company/04171412/buy-it-direct-ltd
If that is the real price, congratulations to the seller
I wonder what the negotiations were like
I don't know how you turn down a £50,000 offer, let alone what it went to
Will never know but maybe it went "Hi is furniture.co.uk for sale, and if so how much?" and the previous registrant replied starting high. Subsequently a sale was agreed at $700k. I'd be surprised if there was a lot of negotiation
Wouldn't you hire someone to negotiate for you for a deal like this
Id be pretty disappointed if the best deal they could get me is $700k
But then who knows the real price, good publicity to say it was a big figure
You'd be disappointed as the buyer or seller? I assume as a buyer.
It was sold through Sedo and I am not aware whether a broker was involved or not. Dayline, if it was them that sold it, which I presume it was, have been around for eternity so it seems unlikely that they would have to do very much other than decide the price they wanted to achieve and refuse to budge much. A broker can't get a registrant to drop the price if the registrant doesn't want to drop it.
