Sometimes you just gotta sit and wait. I just sold a domain this week that was in a live auction months ago and didn’t meet reserve and after I had it sent out in one of the domain broker newsletters. Both the live auction and newsletter yielded nothing so the domain was sitting there, parked, listed at both Sedo and GoDaddy. I got an offer through Sedo and after a week of back and forth we reached a price and the domain sold… higher than what I had the reserve set for in the live auction and the newsletter. This was a Namejet purchase of mine about 8 months ago, cost about $1,200 and sold for a little under $5,800. Here’s the list…

My Top 5 Picks – didn’t know how many different products this name was used for until I just Googled it. – awesome name for a cam site, memorable and easy to build this into a brand. – could be an acronym, could be something to do with California. – tapas are delicious but if you have a big appetite you’ll need to order a few. – I like domains that are popular first name and then a letter (for last initial). Just need to find someone who wants that vanity domain and you’ll score. Too bad this one wasn’t KimK.

My 5 Picks with Less Than 10 Bidders – this could be something about Connecticut with the CT abbreviation. – nice brandable domain with only a few bidders. – plaster a big picture of yourself smiling cheesily on the homepage and when you have a disagreement with the wife tell her to go to MrWise to see who’s right. – some sites give away will forms for free and have ads on the site, other sites have no ads but charge you for the forms, you can do either with this domain name. – buy it, sell it to a roof inspector, profit, eat out at a steakhouse that night.

My Darkhorse Pick (a domain I think you can snatch cheap and sell for over $1,000) – if you’re into the brandable’s that are easy to pronounce this is a winner for you. Only 2 bidders.
