An idea not much
A patent, depends on strenght and your ability, financial and otherwise, to defend it.

Other business valuation models include 

Discounted cash flow projection
Business model
First customer
Second customer
Profitability
Growth rate
Gross margin
Holdup value

But an idea is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

As people read this and reply, the more common theme of answers will be all about telling you to fist generate revenue and then worry about the valuation.
Most of the people who do invest/value a product in this field are in no way using a accurate scientific approach to valuation. For all the projections to be made and using all sorts of valuation models, bottom line is your ability to convince someone what you see is potential value. 
Be aware that your goal is to secure a fair price for your idea, everything else is just hype/gravy and or just talk which is cheap.

I'd appreciate it if someone with experience in this area could speak
 with me briefly.

Thanks,
