Once again a LLLL.com domain stared in Afternic weekly sales list
This week the domain name MAAC.com lead the sales chart with a $63K sale.
Besides being pretty close to Mac.com ( I wonder how owns that?) MACC stands for a LOT of organizations and companies.
$18K for brainwater.com?
I guess it is pretty close to Smartwater so I guess both will make you a better person.
lolshirts.com for $6K
Seriously 5 other LLLL.com made the list as well
|NON. Com Sales|
DOT mail TLD - a business many times bigger than .CO says
should Maac.com have a so high value ONLY because it’s an LLLL.com?
other, longer, names should have more value if the name has a meaning

Dang, shows you never can tell?
No Sense and Typos,
who judged as premium to start with?
Power to us people. LOL
Don’t own it
adds more value to cvvc pronounceable domains.
Nice, they sure seem consistent, how do they compare with sedo regarding overall value of domains sold per week?
I get so freaking excited when I see these kind of domains selling for XXXXX $$$
2011 will be the year of Domains!!!
I’ll admit I have no idea what the hell “brain water” is, but the other names aren’t just typos and nonsense.
MLKOnline.com could be a company acronym or Martin Luther King Online – which would make sense considering the timing.
Harmonie – French/German, possibly other languages.
The others are a bit strange, but somebody saw plenty of value in them.
From my notes and observations of RS Blog: domain value is equal to how much money you are willing to walk away from. If you believe in the quality of your domains, hold out for your price.
Makes me feel good about a recent sale. When you offer a domain that is specific to a company’s service, I don’t mind asking what I think the domain is worth. When they get a hold of the domain, the price will definitely increase.
I believe that good domains will find a buyer. On the opposing side, an extremely quality domain presented to a buyer is sometimes a tough sale. There are end-users that don’t understand the value of a domain, and lack the financial backing to acquire a domain.
I’ve had to prove otherwise that owning a particular domain would increase business. Some businesses don’t want additional traffic, as they can’t handle their current customer base. One business owner noted that he could buy any new domain to compete against a 13 year old generic to his business.
It was an interesting conversation, especially with me doing most of the talking to demonstrate the value of the domain. In the end, he realized the value, but couldn’t afford to purchase the domain. Not every end-user is willing to fork out the dough to buy a domain. However, I realized last year that investing in the right niches will open doors.
Interesting list of domain sales.
Always go with your instinct. Thinking of the price ahead of time can be the difference between a good and a bad sale. Don’t be too quick to respond. Eagerness, too much information, and confusing the buyer will ruin a sale.
Making a few mistakes will improve your ability to close a bigger sale. I find that the formula usually works. These sales are probably based on offers, and not on fixed prices. I have a few 3 digit .org domains I may start pushing.
The domain sales list proves that asking for more will get you what you want. Why even use appraisal systems when you can dictate the market with your own price. Start off high to give yourself some room for negotiation.
MAAC.com was purchased by a specific company that uses the same initials for their name. Otherwise, no random person would have purchased the domain based on a future investment. Hint: one of the ‘a’ characters is apartment.
Such prices are extremely high. Many are not even searched too often. I believe ‘i’ .com domains will soon produce even bigger sales, especially after i.co is auctioned off. 4 character domains are an alternatives to 3 character names.
However, a company that wants to purchase 4 digit .com that compliment their are going to pay much more. Catchy just produced a sale on a 4 character domain with little searches. Searches don’t even matter. People want the good names, or domains specific to their products or services.
I think another way of looking at it might be – every time you refuse an inadequate offer on a quality domain, the higher your raising the standard for the industry as a whole.
compares favorably to thehomesource.com
a site I site I have not had luck in selling..yet
nice to see some decent sales posted for 2 and 3 word combinations and sales of domains similar to some I own, not sure I get the loanstop.com sale, amongst some of the others highlighted
