A Look Back at 2007 Auction Reserves for and more

Just how far have price expectations and sales come for, and domains?  And even

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 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  -  $5,000 to $10,000 each  -  $50,000 to $100,000 each  -  $50,000 to $100,000 each  -  $100,000 to $250,000 each  -  $250,000 to $500,000

Some other interesting domains and reserve ranges:  -  $10,000 to $25,000  -  $25,000 to $50,000  -  $10,000 to $25,000  -  $10,000 to $25,000  -  $25,000 to $50,000  -  $5,000 to $10,000  -  No reserve!  -  $1 to $5,000

I would say .mobi price expectations were much higher back in 2007, although some below are good keywords: -  $250,000 to $500,000  -  $100,000 to $250,000  -  $50,000 to $100,000 each  -  $25,000 to $50,000 each  -  $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 please!  Many of the good keyword .com's and'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's have jumped quite a bit judging by recent sales comparables.
