Weekly Domain Name Sales Summary Jan 16 – 22, 2019

Due to attending NamesCon plus some personal travel, and being a bit under the weather for a short period, I have been late doing these weekly summaries.  I hope to get caught up over the next week or so. This is the weekly domain sales report (using NameBio listed data) for the 7 day period from Jan 16 through Jan 22, 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.

Weekly Statistics

During the past week the number of sales per day ranged from 203 to 274. There were 240 or more sales on 6 of the 7 days in the reporting period, representing one of the more active weekly periods. 

The highest average daily price was $839. The lowest average daily sale price was $432. 

The median daily sale price, a better measure of prices an individual investor is likely to encounter, ranged from $215 to $306.

The number of daily sales above $1000 ranged from 18 to 42. There were 20 or more sales above the $1000 level on 5 of the 7 days in the reporting period.

The daily sales volume ranged from a low of about $103k to a high of about $230k.

This was a very active week, with 240 or more sales on 6 of the 7 days. There was also a fair diversity in the extensions and types of domain names that sold, although .com dominated as usual. While the number of sales was higher than normal, the average and median prices were typical. 

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 NameBio subscription plans allow you to study sales below the $100 price point.

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 hope to produce a few more weekly reports over the next few days to get caught up.
