Why are you selling the business?
I have been thinking about this several months now. It is obviously not an easy decision to make with an asset like this huge. I have thought very long and think the site is now stable in terms of both revenue and traffic.
Besides, I am planning to launch something else away from WordPress in other niche as I am also heavily involved in my other media startup company.
I know this site is truly a gold mine just waiting to be fully tapped. However, I simply don't have the time, money and resources at the moment to dedicate to growing it.

Write more theme/ plugin collections.
Convert Free themes with Premium options as well to generate more revenue. I believe that could easily add an extra $1000 per month. A lot of users have said they are waiting for us to create paid theme for them to buy.
We recently interviewed one of our competitor. From the interview, it is clear premium themes still have strong demand and this opportunity should be taken.
Offer some Free tools such as "Theme Finder", "SEO Report Generator" for more revenue.
Add other Ad options such as Google Adsense, BuySellAds. - This is something I haven't had time to test, but could go a long ways for easy passive revenue
