    Abdul Basit is a known name in the domain name industry. He is an active and successful domainer with a deep understanding about domain names.

    Here is an article in which he shares how he valuates domain names:

    1) No urgent need of money. When you have good cash flow your sense of judgement gets change and you act accordingly.
    2) There are hundreds of domain I hold which are upgrades for companies but I have categorized several domains for which I have one specific buyer to target when selling.
    3) When targeting of one specific buyer, that company will definitely be having good backing of funds
    4) That particular market is huge and has lot of potential.
    5) I don’t give much importance to exact searches and CPC of Google Keyword Planner.
    6) Number of existing companies.
    7) Registered in other extensions.
    8) Language.
    9) Comparable sales.
    10) The most important factor in my opinion is that buyer have to have the biggest idea for using the domain they are going to acquire from me.

    I think comparables are the best measuring tool you can use. This helps keep the price relevant to other like sites, and it shows that you know what you are doing on the pricing side of this business.
