Prices vary greatly from one area of town to the next...even from neighborhood to neighborhood within a half mile area so there is no general answer to your question. If you are a type A personality and hell bent on listing yourself then use the county assessor to come up with recent sales prices in your area and take a stab at your home's worth.
The problem with this is that you cannot see pics and therefore cannot determine if the sales are actual comps (do you have formica and they have granite or marble in the bathrooms? has your kitchen been updated and theirs has not? etc). As Realtors, we pay a fairly hefty fee to be a part of the MLS so that we can have access to the non-public information that helps us to create a comparative market analysis based on an apples to apples comparison.
If you don't have a lot of traffic after you put it on the market, you are either priced too high or not highly visible to buyers. The benefit of using a Realtor is that we can directly market you to the 3000+ metro Realtors and their buyers who are set up to receive auto-notification immediately upon listing and we can list it at the RIGHT price which will likely net you more than you will make as a FSBO. Additionally, you will not have to worry about taking pics, marketing, running home from work to show to potential buyers, etc. Try your way for 3 weeks and if you have less than a dozen showings, do yourself a favor and research Realtors in your area or call me and I can direct you to someone who is knowledgeable in your area if I am not.
Best of luck to you!
I also agree with most of the realtors, pricing your home yourself can be a bit tricky. There are lots of things to consider including square footage, area, condition of your home etc. I would be happy to work up the comps for you.
Best of Luck !

Be careful looking at the assessor site for your value. It is usually not dead on. You can look at recent sales in your area on their site, but it is better not to guess. If you would like, I can run some comps for you. Give me a call 405-562-0237
One of the most important factors I deal with is trying not to spend the clients money unless it is absolutely necessary. Buyer's want to beat you down on the price, then ask for things like closing costs and a home warranty and then on top of that, repairs.
Be informed so that you maximize the amount of money you will walk away with. Just recently I listed a home in south Oklahoma City that an appraiser said was worth $210,000.00. I listed it for $225,000 and sold it for $221,000. The total time from list to close was 23 days.
If you're interested in results like this, I would love to visit with you at your convenience.
