As I’ve said many times before, I’m a big fan of Go Daddy auctions, it has been my go-to place for buying expired domains for a long time. Over the years I’ve built a few common searches that I do to identify potential investment opportunities.
One of my newest searches is to search by Go Daddy’s estimated value. While I don’t think this appraisal corresponds to the exact price, there is some logic to it and sometimes it can help to uncover some really solid names that other people might have overlooked.
Today when I did the search I was interested to see a two-word .COM that I really liked that is #2 on the list with no bids. The domain is ToughGuy.com and Go Daddy’s price estimate is $10,902 which I actually think is probably pretty realistic. Sure, if someone held onto the name for a while they might be able to get someone to pay $20,000 or more, and yes – if you wanted a quick flip, selling it for $3,500 might move it faster, but around $10k feels right to me.
With more than 9 days left the auction doesn’t have any bids, yet, but I expect to see bidding activity climb quickly over the next few days. Here’s a quick look at the top ten domain auctions on Go Daddy sorted by appraisal price.
Out of all the domains in the top ten (sorted this way) I’d say ToughGuy.com is my favorite and my guess is it will sell for more than any other name on this list. What do you think? What’s the most you’d pay for ToughGuy.com and what do you think it’s worth?
I want to hear from you, comment and let your voice be heard!
