Sedo announced yesterday the results of its annual Secondary Domain Market Study (PDF). In 2008, top selling domains yielded $77 million in revenue - an 8% sales increase over  the $72 million total from 2007.

Sedo's list of highest selling domains in 2008 includes for $1,176,672, for $1,015,000, for $650,000, for $478,149, for $400,000, for $365,000, for $360,000, for $350,000, for $300,000 and for $260,000.

The study showed that .com remained the most wanted extension, drawing in 76 percent of all sales. In second place was .net at 9%, and .info secured third place with 7% of sales. These results remained consistent with the generic top-level domain shares in 2007. Overall, every worldwide TLD except .biz saw an increase in the number of domains sold in 2008.

I suspect, but cannot prove, that we will see a lot of activity in the domains market over the next year or so.  With the economy slowing down firms, and individuals won't sit on so many domains.  Even as things get better, which they will eventually do, folks will be more cautious about sitting on domains.  Opportunity abounds I say ;-)
