40% of sales between $500 and $2500

36% of sales were negotiated offer-counter offer sales

$70,500,000 in sales

40% of sales between $500 and $2500


More interestingly 87% of sales between $lowest price and $2500 rising up to 94% below $5000

Interesting that .DE had 15%


Isn't it the second largest ccTLD after .tk?

It's also interesting to note that .DE seems to have kept its mean price down to about $1000

No. .DE is the largest ccTLD followed by .UK ccTLD. The .tk ccTLD is a filler to make reports look good. As most domains in .tk are free, from what I remember, it really should not be included in any set of ccTLDs where domains have to be paid for without that qualification.

94% below $5000


That's in large measure due to the quality of the inventory moved through Sedo. Of the many names Sedo moves I'll venture that it's only 1 in 50 to 1 in 100 domains reported sold that I pause to think "that buyer got a good deal". Still, it happens . . and it's always been that way.

I'm uncertain how the "10% unreported" plays into your analysis but, based on my own experience, it's likely that most "signficant $$,$$$+" sales fit into that category.

The better domains sell themselves so that tends to skew the values "reported" as the sellers and buyers in "private sales" have little to gain by reporting their transactions to the world.
