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

Morning Folks!!
With the great success of the 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: $1k-$5k
Reserve NO RESERVE $1k-$5k

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

  1. BBV $9,000 $15,000 $25,000 $600,000 $140,000 $70,000
    Total: $859,000

  2. Charley Chacko

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

  3. Bryan $12k $25k $28k $360k $185k $90k
    Total: $700k

    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:

  5. Ross – $6.5K – $6k – $7k – $150k – $86k – $15k
    Total: $270.5k

  6. UFO.ORG $7k $6k $35k $78k $55k
    As for the sale of Shows, my gut feeling is along the lines of how”did”. So, I’ll say greater than $1m. Lets say $1.15m
    Hence total is = USD $1,331,000

  7. Michael

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

  8. Bryan $7k $8k $2k $140k $105k $22k
    Total: $284K

  9. Maestrus

    Here we go: USD 7,051 USD 7,590 USD 3,628 USD 282,930 (reserve not met) (reserve not met)

    Total= $893,850
    Good luck guys!

    This lot is hard to value as 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.

  14. Steve Fox $80,000 $9,000 $12,000 $690,000 $420,000 $120,000

  15. JF Mayer

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

  16. Don Murray 5k 5k 5k $35k $190k 25k
    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.

  18. Dluzional

    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)

  28. Andrew Douglas

    I didn’t see 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!
