Daily Domain Sales (2-24-2015): BlogCastFM.com $6,200, firstrike.com $4,000

dailyI sold 4 domains this past week. 2 of them are paid already and I am sure that the 3rd will get paid also. Not sure about the 4th one. I sold 2 new gtlds, $2,5k and $10k(-20%), a .us for $2k and a .info for $4,5k. I guess you can make money with any extension. I also declined a $10k offer on a .com.
