This is the weekly domain sales report (using NameBio listed data) for the 7 day period from Feb 6–12, 2019.
The daily summaries section below summarizes each day in the format date, number of sales, average price, median price, number of sales at or above $1000, and the total sales volume. It is followed by a listing of about a dozen domain names that attracted our attention. In some cases other brief comments are included.
During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 213 to 288. There were 230 or more sales on 6 of the 7 days in the reporting period, and more than 200 every day.
The highest average daily price was $631. The lowest average daily sale price was $400.
The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an individual investor is likely to encounter, ranged from $212 to $292.
The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 21 to 36. Interestingly there were 21 sales above $1000 on 4 of the 7 days (and 22 on another). There were 20 or more sales above the $1000 level on all days in the reporting period.
The daily sales volume ranged from a low of about $107k to a high of about $148k. No truly huge sales were entered in the database during this period.
Each week I identify some names that stood out for me because they were creative, in important niches, or otherwise interesting. While these are not exclusively the top sales from the week, most (not all) are selected from sales of $1000 or more.
My personal favourite names from this week include 4040 (net), ATV (io), bizcoin (com), BuzzBrand (com), cannabis (ly), circus (net), cough (net), CreateSomething (com), CyberPlanet (com), DigitalDoor (com), dune (co), expat (us), FleetForward (com), holography (org), InfoBright (com), LegalLink (org), MagneticMoon (com), NP (net), people(cc), PaySky (com), RadPod (org), sci-hub (tv), sheep (io), SolarView (com), TotalWater (com) and TourGeeks (com).

In terms of number of sales this was a busier week than usual, with more than 200 sales every day and 235 or more on all days but one. The average and median prices were pretty typical though, and no truly huge sales during the week. There is perhaps a natural lull in the week after NamesCon. This was a fairly quiet week for new domain extensions.
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. The median sales price should be interpreted within that understanding.
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. We have based the statistics reported here on only sales of value $100 and more, although the top two levels of the NameBio subscription plans allow you to study sales below the $100 price point.
