Website sales are sometimes just as odd as domain sales. Every now and then we see domain sell and then resell later for a lower price. Sometimes the seller is just in need of cash and other times it may have been a name that was purchased at a high point in the market. Arithmetic.com is a recent example as the domain sold for $16,612 in 2010 and recently sold last week for $9900 in the Great Domains October auction.
Last week on Flippa a website sold for just barely more than 1/10 the price it sold for five months earlier.
Now the first time around the site boasted over $94,000 in gross profits. The new listing said,
Since the site sold there has been an additional $22,250 in gross revenue on the site.
That $22,250 is based off 5 months so the site has averaged around
$4,450 each of those months.
The website broker added:
"I knew both the creator of this site and I have also grown to know the
new owner. The site is basically in need of someone who can take this
property and market it effectively.
Sales have dipped a slight bit, but the testament here is that with
no attention, no marketing, and no time given to the site – the new
owner has still produced $4,450 in sales (avg. per month)."
The business is a white label seo services company.
