The Rick Latona Live Auction from the TRAFFIC show just finished and grossed about $375K in sales.
No big surprises on domains that sold.
Shows.com which we predicted $125K for, sold for $102K making it the highest priced sale.
SmartPhones.com sold for $95K.
The combo of Mortuary.com and Mortuaries.com which we predicted would sell did for the reserve of $25K.
FLR.com which was first thought to have sold at $16K, sounded like it did not in fact sell, as it was bought back at the end without a buyer.
Several domains were brought back at the end failed to sell even though the reserve was reduced, including pinballmachines.com which was reduced from $50K to $40K and criminalcourtrecords.com which was reduced from $16K could not find a buyer at $9,500.
Personally I don’t like bringing back domains at lower reserve price at the end. In my opinion such a maneuver devalues any domains bought at the reserve during the auction. If your a buyer during the auction and buy a domain at reserve only to see the reserve quickly drop afterwards by 20%-40% on other domains, it can’t give you a good feeling about your purchase.
WaterPurifiers.com which recently sold in active bidding on NameJet.com for a little over $15K could not find a buyer with a $15K reserve.
A pretty disappointing auction.
We will see what Moniker.com auction brings tomorrow, which I predicted will hit $1.5 Million in sales.
