    BedroomFurniture.com sold by Fabulous

    A very high quality name I would have said,

    It sounds to me like they may have sold it for around 150k just looking at the last quarterly figure and the comment about it,

    Qtr end
    30.09.07

    857k


    " On the basis of October trading, gross secondary market domain name sales are expected to be approximately US$1 million. This is up from the September quarter but includes the sale of bedroomfurniture.com (the reference domain that the company had been using in its shareholder communications).

    //////////////

    Domain Name News has not received a formal confirmation on the sale or the price of the domain name, but ownership has obviously been changed to CSN Stores. The domain name was one of Fabulous’ marquis developed domain names and has been referenced for years in their filings and presentations as an example of a direct navigation domain. The domain name was developed to incorporate ppc as well cpa advertisers into the site. The buyer, CSN Stores, maintains a vast network of e-commerce websites many in the home furnishings niche. CSN has also partnered with Internet Real Estate Group in development of their domain name Luggage.com."

    I brokered the sale of this name about five years ago for about a tenth of that, so not bad.

    900% growth in 10 years - an outstanding return. I wonder whether today's domain purchases will be equally profitable?

    Cool. They did contacted me about few of my furniture names but offered very low price.

    If the original price was 900% over 5 years then I'd say the return is a lot less than the overall market. 5 years ago poor quality 3 letter .com's sold for about $200 (compared to about $5500 now) which is a good indication of how things have gone as an average I think.

    Looks like Fabulous bought the name in mid 2004, so perhaps it was a 900% return over 3 years?

    That's a growth of around 2600% for the last 5 years - hard to beat!

    Thanks, that would make sense. $150,000 sounded on the lowish side to me, just looks like that from the way the sale is described. What was the rumored figure?

    I own the .net, would that have an effect on it's value or am I being nieve, ie .net being worth 5-10% of the .com?

    I dont no about percentages, but It will bring attention to your name and i wouldnt be suprised if you got a very good offer, you might even want to contact sedo for a free featured auction, make sure reserve is high enough though
    good luck

    Would have said 3-4% as a general average for keyword names.

    Price stated as $250,000 here,

    "In mid-2007 that domain was sold for US$250,000 to a company developing a furniture-focused e-commerce business."
