The term "6 figures" is being bandied about here as if it were gold, but £100,000 is not THAT much money when it's your livelihood. Maybe 2 years salary to a lot of poeple?
Admittedly it could also be £999,999 which is very different but a low 6-figure for a money-making website wouldn't warrant a sale in my opinion, and much less after you've paid escrow, lawyer and accountant fees.
I was recently offered 12 months revenue plus $10,000 for a site, which would have taken it very close to 6-figures and it was a no-brainer - I much prefer to keep it and the revenue for the next year and beyond.
I know this is not the type of reply the OP was looking for, for which I apologise, but wanted to express my opinion anyway in case it gives food for thought.
