I’m sure you all are familiar with real estate investing. Buying a house or land to rent or sell for profit is pretty much the gist of it. Digital real estate investing is no different. Every domain name, social media account, website, etc. are all digital property on the internet. You can buy, sell, and even rent “digital real estate” the same way you can with physical real estate.
This webpage is an example of digital realty. The owner can use this domain to build leverage and gain traction. Later they could have the option of leasing or selling it to a company in the same industry.
More and more people are starting to make serious income with digital realty. Buying and selling domains and websites have became increasingly popular since the early 2000s. Some domains have sold for millions of dollars.
Here’s a short list:
- CarInsurance.com $49,700,000 (2010)
- Voice.com $30,000,000 (2019)
- 360.com $17,000,000 (2015)
- Sex.com $13,000,000 (2010)
- Hotels.com $11,000,000 (2001)
- Diamond.com $7,500,000 (2006)
- AsSeenOnTV.com $5,100,000 (2000)
It has been reported that Cars.com sold for $872,000,000! ——— YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT!
The average sale price of an e-commerce website is about 17x its monthly profit, give or take, it wouldn’t be crazy to see some bring in millions.
Besides the high return of investment, digital realty is simple to get in. For newbies, I recommend flipping domains. Find a few under $20 and sell for $100-200. Get your feet wet. You won’t even have to build a website for this. But, if you find a premium domain, you may be holding onto $50,000-500,000. If you do decide to hold onto the domain and build a website you that generates income, you can sell it to another investor for 10x the monthly revenue. You just never know!
