    Absolutely not. Your job is to find out who is knocking on the door, especially if the name is valuable.

    A lot of companies with deep pockets, hire brokers who will protect their identity and that of their clients, in order to get a better price. They'll go to great lengths to do so.

    It's fair play to ask what it's worth to them, If you can find out or know who they are.

    You and @karmaco are both right.

    Imo, when pricing your domains, you already have to know about potential end-users and what they will be prepared to pay for your domain, and price accordingly.

    This thread had a false start from the beginning. We're still busy cleaning up the confusion.

    May be the company does not need this particular name.

    It depends.

    Is the domain generic, high quality, or just some random letters?

    How bad does the company need it?

    How deep is the pool of other potential buyers?

    Obviously $1,000 is not going to cut it. I would basically tell the buyer to make a serious offer if they are interested and not respond with an asking price.

    Your job is to sell a domain for a price you can live with. The buyer is almost always masked and its of no consequence who it is.

    Is there a different price at the supermarket for eggs depending how much money you have in the bank? The answer is its the same price for Warren Buffet as it is for a homeless guy.

    Pricing a domain mainly based on perceived buyer pocket is why domainers are routinely called squatters.

    I see both sides.

    On one side you want to extract the most money possible on every domain sale.

    On the other side people can have some pretty unreasonable expectations when it comes to large companies. They often don't need the domain as bad as you think.

    However, the comparison to a supermarket is off IMO as every domain is one of a kind. At a supermarket all the products are the same, nothing is unique.

    The more unique an asset the more subjective value is.

    very little is unique (especially with two words) and most times very easily replaceable with another combo. I am all for pricing however one wants but base it on the name not the entity or people inquiring. That is conducive to price gouging or extortion.

    Does is tell you HOW 800 - 1000 people came to your name? Did they type in the domain because that could be used in a future deal. That's potentially 12000 lost customers for the company. Loose figures but you get me blud?

    When I asked that I don't need any more suggestions, I think that's enough.
