Lovely sale ! reported on DNjournal.com
wow - don't know how I missed that one!
NB: oh I've just noticed it's a new dnjournal sales page - thursday already - lost track of the time this week with halfterm and the kids here! roll on Monday
That's a nice 300%+ return in 15 months!
nice spot Edwin - did a search too and noticed that you specifically mentioned rugs.co.uk in this thread in the summer. Shows it was listed at a £60k fixed price! Must have been nice for the seller when he received the email from sedo saying 'congratulations your offer has been accepted'. Is the seller an acorn member. Is he one of the usual suspects?
Just gutting giving Sedo 10%!
Rugs.co.uk originally sold at the TRAFFIC Amsterdam show in the live auction. I was chatting in the hallway at the time and missed the action, so I don't know who bought it then, but I know it got quite a bit of attention...
it wasn't a low xxx purchase then Edwin? ...sorry couldn't resist it
We have www.rugs.org.uk, just recently started developing/marketing, ranking page 16 :-D lol
Has this sale increased it value?
Seems to be a lot more interest on .org.uk's as good product .co.uk's are becoming rarer to acquire.
Yes I would say it has increased its value, mainly because a big sale like this will alert the army of smaller affiliates out there about the potential for selling rugs online and so demand for a good domain in the sector should increase.
you've just got to google 'rugs' to see how many sites sell them in the PPC and natural results, huge market for them!
Great price still!
It's already on DomainPrices.co.uk - I did a major update recently of .UK sales.
Well done Admin - what a month October was (and it isn't finished yet!) Seems the domain market has followed the rebound in the economy. I can't remember prices being this bouyant for a long time.
Just eyeing those sales up on DomainPrices.co.uk, the median sale price is looking pretty good these days
Possibly because that list isn't complete you can't really infer that. It doesn't include any domains sold on Sedo for less than £478. I sold quite a few in the range of £150 to £450 which are not listed there.
Agreed - some other data missing eg. sales on here
Agree. Sedo are selective in what they release, have sold some that don't appear.
agree it seems likely that not all sales are being reported i.e. very cheap ones however a lot of buyers do request privacy and there may be some other big .co.uk sales that we don't know about.
anything uner about $2k wont appear on dnjournal
if your settings on sedo are not to reveal buys or purchases they wont appear on dnjournal or rss
True. My point though is that the data are interesting in that they show that domains can sell for certain amounts, but absolutely pointless for saying anything about trends etc as only a selective data set is presented.
What you can't say, is that average (or median) sales prices are either up, down or steady. To do so from this data is misleading.
who was the owner of rugs.co.uk before it was sold ?
Separate names with a comma.
