Selling a website - how to handle financial transaction?

I have a few bids to buy one of my websites - in the $20,000 range. How do I handle the financial transaction? Do we have the money go into an escrow account? If I transfer the domain and files first and do not receive full payment I'm stuck. The buyer may not want to pay first for the same reason.

Is there a standard procedure for this?

I would use escrow.com or a similar service.
The buyer puts the money in and once you confirm it is there... you can transfer the domain over.
