Rick Schwartz, the Domain King, has sold the domain name 899.com for $801,000 which becomes the 3rd largest reported domain name sale of 2015. (DnJournal. com is the official keeper of all reported domain name sales)
Earlier this year Rick sold the domain name Porno.com for $8,888,888 which is the highest reported domain sale of 2015.
Before the PX.com sale the 2nd highest sale of 2015 was my sale, MostWantedDomains.com of 345.com for $800,000.
Rick told Thedomains.com that he would have sold the domain many weeks ago but “I am such a prick. I held out for $801,000 for weeks and weeks so that I could be number two. LOL” (Yes that is a true statement).
Of course the PX.com sale occurred in those few weeks so Rick will have to settle for number 1 and 3 on the 2015 high domain reported sales report.
Rick had some very interesting comments on the future value of NNN.com domains names which he owns another 12:
“”Anyone that thinks nnn.com domains are going down in value because of the economy in China or a bubble may need to think again.
“As someone who has watched the market for these easy to promote and easy to remember domain names go from registration fees of $70-$100 and very slowly climb to these levels over a nearly 20 year period is exactly opposite of a bubble as some might claim.”
“When I wanted $50,000 it was too much. ”
“When I wanted $100,000 it was too much. ”
“When I wanted $500,000 it was too much. ”
Well now the levels are beginning to meet my expectations and I still don’t see anything but an upward trend. ”
Rick’s 12 NNN.com can be seen at 399.com and yes he is planning on raising all the prices in the near future.
