As you also probably know the sale shattered the previous record for the then highest .org sale of engineering.org at $198K, and our sale of Sexe.Org last year for $151K.
So the question becomes is this sale a game changer?
I believe so.
Selling for more than 5 times than the previous highest sale, coupled with breaking the seven figure mark, the sale is going to effect the value of bang on, category killer .org.
I know your saying this was a unique situation, a perfect storm, which created the sale.
An end user who really wanted and could afford the domain and a Seller that didn’t need the money and could hold out for his price.
But that is exactly the situation that sets records and changes markets.
I think this sale will have the same physiological effect that the sale of Men.com did for the resale market when it sold for $1.3M (another situation of a Seller who would not sell below his price).
Does this mean that every .org is worth more than it was yesterday, No.
But for those category killer .org’s the bar has been raised and the game changed.
