In the past week 675 (602 in the previous week) transactions took place on Sedo’s marketplace and via SedoMLS, totaling $1.2 million ($1.4m in the previous week). Only 233 (247 in the previous week) domains from the 675 were reported by Sedo. The other domains were either private sales or domains that sold for less than 700 USD/EUR/GBP. Over 54% (52% last week) of total sales were the result of Buy Now listings. Sedo will not reveal what is the Buy Now percentage of the public sales vs the percentage of the private sales. And will not reveal what percentage of the total sales value do the Buy Now listings represent.
The average domain name sales price was $1,778 ($2,3260 last week).
