castar, there isn't one single place that exclusively stocks sites that are upmarket from Flippa. There's no Flippa Plus.
There's the JS_Harris passive approach of sitting and waiting, but that may not suit everyone and the buyer with the biggest budget may never be actively hunting for a site to buy.
Places like businessesforsale, sunbeltnetwork, bizquest etc., are the places to list higher value sites. There's also the option of hiring a broker to assist. Pick the right one and they can be invaluable in identifying prospective buyers in your industry and elsewhere and making initial contact to suss interest. Some brokers have listings on their own sites. I don't make broker recommendations, but there are at least two brokers who regularly sell websites at higher multiples than you see in the Flippa/DP kind of marketplaces. You should be able to find them with a little bit of research. The higher multiples they get is because they focus on better quality properties (less risk) and put in a lot of work. Because they advertise in business mags, finance newspapers etc., they often have a database of interested buyers whom they've already vetted and got signed NDAs from.
The way it works for the higher value websites is a bit less crass than a public auction where every idiot who doesn't have $2 to his name can post a criticism of your site, its prospects or your asking price. The work happens behind the scences - by PM, email, phone chats, physical visits. Involved are often Letters of Intent, long and boring discussions on terms, NDAs, sales contracts etc. and, contrary to how some here would like to do business, the transactions tend not to happen in cash.
