Are Domain Brokers Selling Out Domain Owners?


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.
