Top sale in dnjournal’s report today:
$260,000 for TripleCreditReport.com
Looks quite overprices and suspicious indeed, and btw QuadrupleCreditReport.com is still available, should be worth at least 25% more 😀
Some have suggested that similar sales might be fake. There can be many reasons to do this: someone trying to get attention to his domain and sell it for a good amount later, or for tax purposes, to get funding etc. There are many ways to fake a sale like that, so this is quite possible.
However I’ve seen many crazy things in my domaining years, like average $xxx worth domains selling for 6 figures and vise versa. It’s all about having one interested buyer and anything is possible.
One case I’m aware of, someone I know paid low 6 figures for a year old domain, because he had an idea how to develop it and make that money back in ~ a year. Not sure if he did, but that was a lot to gamble on and the seller got over 100k for a domain he spent $14 on ..
Of course there are probably some fake sales too, so it’s hard to know. What do you think?
