Afternic Sells Magical.com via Weekly Brokerage Listing Post
Every week, I publish a “Weekly Brokerage Listings” post to share newly listed domain names at various domain brokerages. The idea behind this was initially because I often ask colleagues what new listings they have, and I thought it would be interesting for domain investors to see what kind of new inventory is coming on the market on a weekly basis.
To make it more interactive, I began allowing readers to submit their own sale listings, and I think people have come to appreciate both aspects of this weekly feature on my blog.
A big question remained: has anyone actually had success selling a domain name via this weekly blog post?
I’ve heard from several domain investors who have sold domain names through the comment section, and I heard from a couple of buyers who bought names from seller listings. I also bought a domain name that was listed in the comment section. I know it’s helped domain sellers move names, but I hadn’t heard about any confirmed sales from domain brokers.
Rich Green, a domain broker at Afternic, emailed me this morning to let me know that Magical.com was sold this week after being listed on my blog last Wednesday. The buyer saw the listing on my blog and purchased the domain name. I don’t know if it sold for the listed price or if the buyer negotiated a better price, but it’s a very good name and I think the asking price was reasonable.
As I say every week, I have absolutely no involvement in any of the sales. I don’t charge anyone for listing their domain names for sale, and I don’t make a commission on any sale. I hope others have success with their sale listings. If you want your name featured in the blog post, you should ask your domain broker to submit it. If the domain name is excellent and it’s priced well, there’s a good chance you’ll find some interest.
Congratulations to Afternic on the sale and to the other parties.
