I answered this question a few months ago:
When I sold my site, I simply made all the data public, right on my web site: pageviews, visitors, advertising revenue, affiliate revenue, etc. -- in the end, no serious buyer is going to spend ANY time negotiating until you've shown these numbers, and most serious buyers will also refuse to sign a non-disclosure agreement just to see basic numbers. Of course, if you believe that your data is a valuable secret, then you're going to have trouble finding a serious buyer.

A colleague of mine was approached last week by a major technical book publisher, who offered $2500 for his domain (along with an offer for a bunch of free technical books). He received the money earlier this week.
In his case, I think it was just a matter of having a domain name that fit what the publisher was looking for.
We joke a lot about how buying domains is like playing the game of Monopoly - he who has the most real estate almost always wins the game.
