Parking page takes me to GoDaddy?

I'm interested in domain MyCompany.com. I visit MyCompany.com via a browser and the header says: "Interested in MyCompany.com? Our Domain Broker Service may be able to get it for you. Find out how."  Clicking on this takes me to Godaddy, which means godaddy is the broker.

I've bought several domains with godaddy, and the parking page is never an offer to buy the domain, which leads me to believe that 1) it was done on purpose and 2) godaddy wants to sell it.

My question: when the parking page takes me to godaddy, does this mean that godaddy wants to sell it? If so, then why do they want me to pay the $69.99 broker fee?

 

Thanks.

@Rearhat    That is an ad for the Domain Broker Service, it is not a positive indicator the current owner would be willing to sell.  The broker service will attempt to contact the current owner, negotiate a sale, and facilitate the transaction.  There is a flat fee to get the process started, then a commission on the total if a deal is made.  Though they can not guarantee to get any particular domain, using a domain broker shows you have a serious offer and both sides will be protected in the transaction.

People can opt to have a Cash Parking page where they get revenue from the ads displayed on the page. Often times this will also have a link to sell the domain as well.
