Here are the first 10 domain name appraisals from Mike Mann and AccurateAppraisals.com
Mike Mann is the owner of DomainMarket.com that offers more than 300,000 premium domain names for sale. Mike sells more domains as he is only reporting what he wants to report. Yes, his overall sales average is below $5,000 so the reported average means that there were quite a few not reported sales for less than $5,000.
I hope there is not someone that thinks that these are all the domains that Mike sold this month. These are just the domains that he chose to report. Also he is purchasing hundreds of domains each month yet he reports only 1 or 2 or not at all. If people were selling only what they were reporting then I wouldn’t have any sales this year!
(One thing to remember is that Mike Mann needs to sell about $2.5+ million worth of domains per year to break even and that he is NOT a flipper. The average holding time for his sold domains is usually more than 5 years.)
Here are all the Mike Mann’s sold domain name reports published on OnlineDomain.com since 2016:
You know what would be really cool?
Do a search on DomainTools to find out how many domain names his company owns, then multiple by $8 or $7 or whatever you think he’s paying for his domain names per year, then divide by 12 and show that number as an expense just after the line item for income.
I’d like to see the whole story, not just the highlight reel.
Thanks for what you do, Konstantinos.
He has about 300k domains. But he sells a lot more that he is not reporting. I know a lot of the domains he sells but don’t know prices.
Quick math: 300,000 names x $7 = 2.1MIL/year in renewals so he needs to sell $175,000/month.
Mike reported only 11 domain sales that resulted in 205k in sales for MAY so he’s good to go, and that’s WITHOUT accounting the sales that he DOES NOT make public!
I know for a fact that he sells 2-3 other names/day that he does not report…
No matter how you slice it he’s very successful and owns an amazing .com domain portfolio. 🙂
