Rick Schwartz sells portfolio of 10 NNN(.)com domains

Rick Schwartz, aka the Domain King, announced in a tweet today that he has sold his entire portfolio of 10 NNN.com domains.

Rick did not disclose the price that the domains were sold but did say that the domains would take 10 spots high on the DNJournal’s top sales of 2017.

I would expect the price to be somewhere between $1.5M and $2.5M for the package.

The domains were purchased back in 1997/1998 for $700.

The 10 sold domains are:

346.com
348.com
238.com
975.com
750.com
243.com
295.com
969.com
239.com
977.com

All domains appear to have been sold to a Chinese buyer. The deal was brokered by TopNames.

This was the tweet today:

“Happy 2 report I’ve sold my entire portfolio of 10 NNN(.)com #Domains purchased in 1997/1998 for $700. Tho I can’t share pricing, I can say it would’ve swallowed up 10 spots high on @DNJournal’s top sales of 2017. Thanks to @TopNames 4 brokering this multi-million-dollar deal!”

Update: Rick made a few tweets today and according to these I now estimate the price of the 10 NNN.com domains at about $5M.

  1. That’d be at least $3 million. Rick doesn’t sell cheap.

  2. China still going strong. Only the bottom feeders are gone. Top end of the market is still attracting a lot of cash apparently (NN, NNN, LL, LLL). Of course only in .com

    My guess is $2.8 million for 10 names.

  3. Amazing. He owned 1% of the entire NNN.com market.

  4. He holds long and sells high. Easily over three million don’t ya think?

  5. Are those three 4’s there a ding?

  6. IMO- I would place the sale around 6.0-6.5 million. His last NNN was around 900k. Average them all out and 600-650k would be solid.

    • Hello Konstantinos,

      How out of touch are the SEM suppliers? The state of Missouri is now investigating the Googleopoly, and they much like Teflon Trump think everythings still Business as usual. Google and Facebook are experiencing their own Disruption instead of breaking others Business Models. JAS 11/15/17

      • Hello Konstantinos
        How do you justify S.E.M. Platforms knowing the following? ( Here are 2 theoretical Questions ? 1 How much traffic would you lose using Google based SEM online Marketing Strategy ? 2 How much traffic would you lose using NON-.COM extensions ? our answer to 1 = (25 to 40% Traffic loss) our answer to 2 = (50 to 60% Traffic loss) NOW here is the Big Question ?Why would anybody use these strategies??

  8. I said around 2.5 – 4 mil I was only off by a mil and seem to be closest. Rick doesn’t get jittery and just cut and run, he sells high and delivers. No doubt about it.

    Truly the Domain King.

  9. Rick is unique, with the years in some US square there will be a statue of him with this writing I buy pigeon shit bring luck.

  10. Hello Konstantinos,
    People often ask us how does Rick negotiate such high valuations?
    Ricks mindset and conviction are bolstered by the underlying Concept.

    ” In many cases undervalued , .COM Profit Center (Equimoddities) are unleveraged Online Sales Entities in sheeps clothing.
    Visionaries are simply defined as those individuals able to clearly visualize and define, future undervalued Asset Forms, that actually do finally Manifest into Form. JAS 9/14/16

    • Hello Konstantinos,

      Rick Schwartz, understood the economic ramifications of new TLDs being introduced, and that the only people the new TLDs benefited were Search Engine Marketing Advocates Only. The new TLDs are totally dependent on the Search Engine Market platform for any minor relevance they enjoy. As anyone who has studied our Marketing Intelligence reports should know by now, The highest and best use of new Tlds is for their ability to be manipulated by S.E.M. Algorithms for the S.E.M. Platforms proprietary Manipulation for their own Profit.

    The Really Smart Institutional Money is slowly waking to the Economic Power of the (.COM Equimoddity Platforms) Strategic Leveraging Power. For the creative mind there are opportunities everywhere.
    In our opinion the greatest ASSET opportunities lie in the (Target Branded .COM Equimoddity Platform Asset) REASON :
    Most of the privately held (Target Branded .COM Equimoddity Platform Assets) are owned by inexperienced Branding experts. This accounts for OPPORTUNITY. JAS 11/19/17
