How do you decide if a domain is not worth renewing?

Break your portfolio down into several categories. Perhaps

-two-word .COM
-three-word .COM
-LLLL.com
-one-word .Net/.Org
-one-word new TLD
-LL/LLL nTLD
-numerics
etc

Of your different categories, which ones tend to get the most inquiries? Which tend to get zero interest? How long have you held those which have had no inquiries? What are the renewals on any CCTLD or new TLDs? Expensive renewals need to be given more serious consideration for deletion - particularly if they are not getting inquiries. Do you plan to develop any in the future (even if you outsource the project)?

2. Will a company want that name? if not, drop it..
3. Is the name is similar to a TM? If so, drop it..
4. Is the name makes sense? If not, drop it..
5. Proper spelling? If not.. drop it unless it is intentionally misspelled like Burnerr and Qrumb
6. Does similar domains sells? Look at namebio.com. If so renew it..
7. Have you received any inquiry for this name? If yes, renew it..
