Weekly Brokerage Listings

13

With the holiday season and end of the year quickly approaching, I believe there are going to be some very good deals to be had in the next several weeks.

In addition to the usual end of year fund raising to meet goals and to pay for holiday-related expenses, some US citizens may be more inclined to sell their domain names before the end of the year as a result of some expected tax changes. I believe the tax rate on long term capital gains is set to increase, so companies may be more inclined to sell domain names before the new year.

I have been sending out more inquiries that usual to purchase names in the event that better deals are to be had, and I am also on the lookout for good deals… You might consider doing the same if you are looking to buy.

Anyway, I want to share some new brokerage listings submitted by several domain brokers.

  • SSL.com – $1.5 million – Andrew Rosener, Media Options (covered yesterday)
  • EliminateDebts.com – $5,000 – Cax.com
  • Fort.com – $60,000 – Michael Conner, MichaelConner.tv
  • Housing.com – $900,000 – Dave Evanson, Sedo

    I just don’t understand why domainers still use Sedo. Please give me one good reason. Just one! I have none…

      I make offers via Sedo quite often.

      I know some domainers still use Sedo, but I asked for reason. A good reason. Would you pick Sedo to sell your $900k domain name?

      I’d trust Dave… He’s closed some big deals. If I had a seven figure name I wanted to sell, I’d be sure they were proactively marketing it.

    They are good for buying on because people will let them go cheap. Not for selling unless it was 5 years ago..lol

      Depends on the name I suppose.

      Yes, Donny – I agree. I should be more specific – I would like to know a good reason why I should use Sedo to sell my valuable domain names, not cheap non-sense stuff.

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been more talk about companies selling by Dec 31 to get the lower capital gains rate. It’s almost certain that the capital gains rate will go up in 2013 even if there is a resolution to the fiscal cliff issue. Now is definitely a time to get a better deal if you are a buyer due to the low capital gains rate still available.

    Also, if you believe that there will be a somewhat reasonable compromise done on the whole fiscal cliff issue in the next couple of months, it is likely that the economy will at least somewhat improve in 2013 and things will be a bit more “normal” and there will be increased optimism looking forward. If that’s the case, domain prices are likely to go up in 2013. So I would think the last part of 2012 is a good time to be a domain buyer.

    “If you sell your domains get silver or gold”

    If I sold ——-.com for 10 ounces of gold, it might be difficult for Escrow .com to handle the transaction.

    So, I need to fly to europe to pick up my payment.
    Then, break U.S. law by carrying the gold back into the U.S.

    When, I go to the gas station or grocery store, hopefully they will accept gold dust.

    Be realistic !!!

      Assuming they don’t, you’ll have to exchange your precious metals and I’m sure that will cost you quite a bit.

    Id like to know why youd be breaking the law if you declared it?

    The only immoral aspect of the whole thing is your governments stealing of it on your return and forcing you to prove something that makes them have to return it.

    The powers that be want you to keep using that worthless paper, literally worth less and less. Let them buy up and store all that gold that isnt really money lol
