A spate of articles have recently popped up on the topic of virtual real estate, also referred to as site-flipping.
- Getting on to the virtual property ladder (Guardian)
- Find an Undervalued Asset. Fix It Up. Flip It. (New York Times)
- Imminent Domaining (Washington Post)
On the one hand, top-class publications have helped legitimise the business model; whilst on the other, it brings it a heap of attention (which may in turn bring unwanted competition).

Update: Sitepoint published an excellent ebook called “Flipping Websites: For Fun & Profit”. Thanks to a partnership with Flippa, you can download it for free. It makes for a superb starting point for learning about this space.
