TRAFFIC Announces”Appraiser of the Year Award Contest” Winner/Spouse to come to TRAFFIC for FREE!

Morning Folks!!
With the great success of the SmartPhones.com contest, we decided to go one step further.
T.R.A.F.F.I.C. will be giving a new award come the fall at the New York
TRAFFIC Show. The 'Appraiser of the Year Award' will be given for the first time, along with
FREE tickets for you and your significant other to the show, to the domainer that correctly predicts and comes
closest to the following TOTAL sales price of the domains listed below. 3
domains by Moniker. 3 domains by Rick Latona Auctions.
The person in the industry that comes closest to the actual TOTAL selling
price of these 6 domains at the Silicon Valley show will be named….”Appraiser of the Year”
among your peers. You can post your appraisals right here no later than midnight
Monday. In case of tie, the first appraisal posted will be declared the
winner. You can go over the total, but you must be the closest.
So folks, this is a time to show you know your stuff. Plain and simple for those that step up and dare to be on record. How good is your gut? How sharp are your predictions? Are you really as good as you think??
The names are the following:
From Moniker:
Exhibiting.com $1k-$5k
Reserve
HotProducts.com NO RESERVE
GolfCaddy.com $1k-$5k
Reserve

From Rick Latona
Shows.com NO RESERVE
SmartPhones.com $50k Reserve
WaterPurifiers.com $15k Reserve
One entry per domainer, IP, or email.
Let the GAMES begin!
Have a GREAT Day!
Rick Schwartz

    >>>How good is your gut? <<< I feel 1/2 will not sell. I am putting $300,000 as the final sale for the total.

    As Rick says, there is the valuation but also the circumstances, and they may change all the best predictions/calculations one may have done.
    So on my end I am simply going to write what I will be willing to pay now for this set of domains:
    $400k

    GolfCaddy.com $35k
    SmartPhones.com $78k
    WaterPurifiers.com $55k
    As for the sale of Shows, my gut feeling is along the lines of how flowers.mobi”did”. So, I’ll say greater than $1m. Lets say $1.15m
    Hence total is = USD $1,331,000

    I think you are all off your rocker. Shows.com goes for 1.5 million or more. I’ll say the total price for all 6 domains will be 1.86 million.

    This lot is hard to value as Shows.com is just one of those names. If more then one end user is bidding then i guess it would be up to their value models.
    It could very easily swing 25% either way but $590k is the guess… also, one maybe two are likely to not meet reserve.

    I am hesitant about the prospects of Shows.com and SmartPhones.com. But let’s say for the total amount:
    $ 460’000

    I am going for 265k. Total. Going against the grain. Smartphones is the best name here. Someone could bid 500k -750k for it, Such as a lg,samsung,spint,but I am not seeing that happen this time around.

    1 query:
    My partner also dabbles,
    and you only allow 1 entry per IP, now how would she be able to post her winning bid if we’re both using the same IP? (separate machines behind 1 router)

    Shows.com is already at $30k on proxibid.com and the auction doesn’t even start for 9 hours.
    I think this domain is really going fly!
    For the whole lot $911,111

    I didn’t see waterpurifiers.com at the extended auction – apparently it’s been sold. Will it be included in the total sales price? Regardless, I am very happy with my entry. It’s on record :) If I didn’t win that’s cool, but I pretty much nailed it. Thanks for the fun competition!
