by Frank Michlick in Categories: Domain Sales, Up to the Minute

Rick Latona’s second “daily” auction also listed domains from the company’s own inventory with the starting bid once more set at $1. The second auction yielded a total result of $19,474 according to our own tally for the 48 domains – the previous auction of 100 domains had brought in a total of over $130,000. The average sales price for the first auction was  $1,320.45 whereas the second auction was only at an average of $405.71 per domain. The top three sales of the auction were opticians.net at $3,601, vintageshop.com at $1,999 and skinnypill for $1,625. Two of the domains listed sold for the minimum bid of $1: mitchellcaverns.com and buriedlinks.com.

[Update] As Chip Meade noted in the comments, Latonas has just kicked off another $1 starting bid auction with 100 domains from Richard Whitney. The auction ends at 1pm EDT tomorrow.

Decent numbers even for the second auction based on what Sedo and Bido are able to pull in. On the downside, over half the sales would not have met the $200 fee Latona’s is charging and only 15 would have generated the seller more than $101. That provided a pretty high commission rate avg.

On another postive, it was nice that he was able to partner up with Richard Whitney for another $1 auction. Hoping to get in on the ground florr of a few of those. We did look at some of the basic stats of those names to see what the TLD, Ad Competition and Exact Search igures looked like and they held up pretty well. Some of the best ones look to have some possible TM issues so be forewarned.
