Brandable domain name sales week 17: CasinoEngine.com, BotLab.com, Xoco.com

We continue to see some very strong sales in the brandable space despite the lack of marketplaces that are reporting sales data these days. Sedo tops the chart with the sale of CasinoEngine.com for a cool $40,000. Raymond over at TheDomains used this sale as an example of why automated appraisal tools such as Estibot and GoDaddy’s GoValue often miss the mark which you can read here. I tend to agree with some of the readers in the comment section that a sale like this is a more an exception than the rule and more specifically with the following comment:

“It is not a great name. In this case, the automated appraisals are more accurate about its value than the person who bought it. This is more a flukey sale than anything. Great sale but it is not the poster boy for appraisals being wrong.”

Often it is sales like these that get new domain name investors overly excited yet off to the wrong start, registering mediocre domains and pricing these too high, completely ruining any chance of a sale.

Please do keep in mind that these are the highest sales that have been reported at NameBio et al. This list is meant to help give you insights and is nowhere near complete as many sales are kept private and many major marketplaces do not report their sales. Some domain name sales might not have been paid for yet.
