Morgan’s Flippa Five – LocalDeals.com, Paid.io and more

I’ve called this weekly feature Flippa Friday for a long time now, so I decided now would be as good a time as any to give this a new name. So I’m going with Morgan’s Flippa Five, this also means I am focusing on five domains…but there’s a twist. I’m going to pick my names as follows:

3 domains I think have good resale potential

1 domain I think has good development potential

1 domain I like personally but may not have much investment value

Boom! Let’s get started. Enjoy, here is my very first Flippa Five

3 Domains with good resale potential

LocalDeals.com – solid name in a huge market. This could be either a great potential resale opportunity or development candidate, either way it’s a great name which is why I put it first!

Tasks.com – this is a monster name. Very meaningful one-word .COM with many different uses and markets it could be applied to. I could see this as a name that sells in the high six-figure range a few years from now, but my crystal ball is as good as yours.

Halifax.com – nice geo name, very well-known Canadian city. I’ve seen pre-season hockey in Halifax, beautiful place and a nice domain. 

1 Domain I think has good development potential

OnlineStorage.com – this is such a huge market and one that is seeing a lot of innovation. Sure, Dropbox is king of the hill but there are a a lot of solutions and a lot of consumers trying to pick the right one. This could be a great directory, blog, or review site focused on online storage solutions. 

1 domain I like personally but may not have much investment value

Paid.io – I’ve made it no secret that I’m a fan of .IO domains. This is a nice short one and given how hot the payment processing space is right now I like it a lot. I don’t have a lot of experience selling .IO names so I can’t tell you much about the resale market but I can tell you I do like this name.

    Thanks for mentioning my listing for paid.io. I’m also currently selling most.ly on Flippa, which is a great domain hack: https://flippa.com/3198955-very-rare-opportunity-one-of-the-best-ly-domains-extremely-brandable-most-ly
    Both of these are no-reserve auctions.

    I got both of these domains with http://park.io

    Update: LocalDeals.com only bid up to $7,000 on Flippa and did not sell.

    My mistake after taking look again some how a bid came in after the auction time expired.. It actually bid to $25,150 and still did not sell. Surprising as I would have pegged reserve at $10,000 which I personally feel is about the par value for this domain name. It’s definitely a nice domain but it is still a 2 word domain name. .deal domain tld is coming soon which I suspect has a lot to do with the motivation to try and sell it at this time..
