    WY.co.uk just closed for the same amount - 900.

    I don't know the purchase price.

    People seem more cautious this week than last.

    As i said above, I know of private sales of similar combinations going for a lot more, the floor value for "domainers" may be 900, but it certainly doesn't show there value to end users by the prices fetched on DomainLore. IMO a great deal for the buyer.

    I wish I had a pound for every time the phrase "great deal for the buyer" or similar was used. No doubt there are 2 letter combinations which able to be sold to end users at higher prices but I personally wouldn't touch them for anything like 900. Of course, I might be wrong and missing opportunities but there must have been a lot of people seeing these on auction with fairly deep pockets.

    The reason for me saying "a great deal for the buyer":

    These latest two seem to have set the bar height - and I think 900 is quite low, but the market is what it is. I think people will be more inclined to think about what 1,000 can buy in terms of generics in what is now very much a buyers' market.

    FY.co.uk is now up for auction on DomainLore - but with an unknown reserve.

    FY.co.uk just closed - 1,300 reserve not met.

    Looks like it originally sold for 1,900.

    Strangely, it looks to me like the high bidder was the original owner of the domain, who must have flipped it already.

    Looks like they are starting to run for the hills now, one every week... Don't want to be left holding these when the music stops.

    YE.co.uk is on, they really need to round up some end users and alert them to the auction because resellers won't pay anything near what Nominet sold them for.

    YE.co.uk sold for 1,100. I'm not sure what the original price was.
