This is just our opinion that even the report is collecting data from well known auction site like SEDO, Moniker, etc, but we have to preserved ourselfes a cool mind. Because it's really interesting huge profit for a domain bought at $10, sold at $250.000, but there's no written prove that we can confirm. That kind of transaction happen in closed door and never exposed originally. We can only look at auction board, but no chances to check it wether it's right or just a buzz.
We think that a profit value between $100 and $ 1000 is natural, if we take look at Kevin Rose's digg.com story when he bought his famous digg.com at $1200 after he rejected by digdig.com's owner at $500. This is true story from Kevin Rose. So if you think a new business and you like scrabble, you may test your luck in domain business, but don't push it to much. Windfall profit in six digit is rarely happen if not a fake story...don't forget to read Ron Jackson site and get all help you need there.
