Week of 08/05/19 to 08/11/19
It's a new week and a new list of last weeks sales. Looks like the number one spot was just $499 bucks short of being a 6 figure sale and that is absolutely going to pull up the average. The domain was SeedMagazine.com which I can only guess is being highly valued due to the growing cannabis industry. Cannabis related domains have done very the last few years. The good ones anyway. I personally haven't invested in any cannabis related domain names as I see it as a niche and current trend.
I tend to stay away from trends like this because I usually don't know the trend well enough to get the right (valuable) domains. Also, if you aren't able to sell them after the trend dies out or calms down you most likely will be stuck with them. I remember years ago when the trend was 'nanotechnology'. People bought tons of 'nano' this or 'nano' that. I don't ever see nanotech domains selling on these lists... I think that trend died out and if you stocked up and didn't sell during the high point, you're now stuck with them. I'd rather not chase trends and be stuck with a bunch of dated trendy domain names. That's just me, I'm admitting I'm no good at chasing those trends! I'll stick to my strategy, it's worked so far.

About the Names
Today's list contained 16 .com domains, 2 .net, 1 .org, and 1 .ai
My favorites on the list include recharger.com, ardy.com, and freshandeasy.com. I can't skip the bizarre sale of cholesterol-and-health.com at nearly $6K. What is going on there?! Obviously it's health related and there's a lot of money in that area, but having 2 hyphens in your domain name?! Come on... Guess I'm missing something here.
