If you have followed the sales results of domains in the last few months you have probably seen a downturn
in sellers’ dollar volume. More often than not these sales are coming out of the leading domain brokerage houses.
I have personally seen brokers, with large mailing lists, touting good domains at fire sale prices. Could it be, that the 15% sales commissions these major brokers receive per sale, has them paying overhead and expenses at the expense of domain owners? We would all hope that this is not true and that the major brokers would have much more integrity. I believe it’s high time for a new domain brokerage property to step up with 05%-07% commissions and higher valuations for their clients assets.
You might say, Mike Berkens of TheDomains(dot)com and RightOfTheDot(dot)com is HOT! After selling over 70,000 of his domains to Godaddy. We have an update: (Godaddy paid about $500 per domain to acquire Michael Berkens’ domain name portfolio. GoDaddy filed its annual report with the SEC today, and it confirms that the company paid $35.5 million to acquire Michael Berkens’ domain name portfolio.) Additionaly, Mr Berkens was in Las Vegas for the domain conference, NamesCon, where he purchased the singular of a plural domain that he already owned for $16,000. While still on the auction floor he flipped them both to a buyer for a cool $60,000. Like I said, “When You’re Hot, You’re Hot! Isn’t domaining fun? If you are Mike Berkens you’re sure having fun.
