Weekly Domain Name Sales Summary Nov 7 – 13, 2018

I summarize daily NameBio listed domain name sales for the 7 day period Nov 7 to Nov 13, 2018 inclusive. As usual, the summaries include number of sales in total as well as those over over $1000 in value. For each day we show the average and median prices for that day. Some of the names that stood out for me are also indicated for each day.

During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 180 to 252. There were 200 or more sales on all days but one in the reporting period. 

The highest average daily price was $3834 but that was heavily influenced by one large sale – if we exclude that one sale the average is $781 that day. The lowest average daily sale price was $406. 

The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an investor is likely to encounter, ranged from $210 to $253.

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged considerably going from 9 to 39. There were 20 or more sales above the $1000 level on 5 of the 7 days in the reporting period.

There were 20 or more sales above $1000 on 5 of the 7 days. The median daily price ranged from $210 to $253. The daily number of sales went from a low of 180 to a high of 252. 

My personal favourite names from this week include anyone (io), book (to), DesignVista (com), elected (org), flock (io), K (vg), LaunchTeam (com), LittleTown(com), NapQuest (com), physician (world), taxis (pt), technologies (io), threat (io) and YourFlowers (com).

In the daily reports I kept the information as reflected in that  daily report.  Some sales are added to the database after the deadline and therefore do not appear. 

Keep in mind that only certain venues report sales to NameBio.  These venues represent a mix of wholesale (domain investor to domain investor) and retail (domain investor to end user) sales.

I urge you to read the full Daily Market Reports at NameBio. I would like to thank Michael and others at NameBio that make this valuable database freely available to the domain community.

Should you want to get my reflections on the NameBio reported sales on a daily basis follow me on Twitter @AGreatDomain.  In case you missed the preceding weekly report it is here. I will do another weekly summary here in about a week’s time.
