Just how far have price expectations and sales come for LL.com, NN.com and NNN.com domains? And even NNNN.com?
I was cleaning out some of my old computer folders and files yesterday and came across a document called "Master Auction Domain List TNYC07". This was the auction inventory list for the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. 2007 Live Auction run by Moniker on June 21, almost 8 years ago.
It was very interesting to look at some of the reserve ranges on domains that were up for auction back then, compared to how they are selling now. You can see for yourself what I mean as I've listed some examples below. There was only one NNNN.com on the auction list, maybe because they weren't even worth putting to auction back then! I've also included some other interesting domains and extensions.
Domain - Reserve range
342.com - $5,000 to $10,000 each
46.com - $50,000 to $100,000 each
YQ.com - $50,000 to $100,000 each
QR.com - $100,000 to $250,000 each
EC.com - $250,000 to $500,000
Some other interesting domains and reserve ranges:
FT.net - $10,000 to $25,000
SO.net - $25,000 to $50,000
U6.com - $10,000 to $25,000
MT.org - $10,000 to $25,000
Jody.com - $25,000 to $50,000
Toy.net - $5,000 to $10,000
1415.com - No reserve!
SEO.io - $1 to $5,000
I would say .mobi price expectations were much higher back in 2007, although some below are good keywords:
GovernorsIsland.mobi - $250,000 to $500,000
Pay.mobi - $100,000 to $250,000
Home.mobi - $50,000 to $100,000 each
Heshe.mobi - $25,000 to $50,000 each
Europe.mobi - $10,000 to $25,000 each
I don't know if any of these domains actually sold back then, all this information tells is what the asking price reserve range was for each domain, so these domains could have been purchased back then in the given range. I'll take all the NNN.com please! Many of the good keyword .com's and LLL.com's I saw on the list were pretty close to what you'd expect the price range to be today, but the short numerics and LL.com's have jumped quite a bit judging by recent sales comparables.
