I appreciate, and respect, your right to sell on your own, but..............this is a major undertaking. So........make sure you know what you are getting into, and are armed to do battle!!
Do your due dillgence.......know what the local market is....know the fair market value of your home..........learn about inspections and town requirements...........know what the comps are......know what the current competition is........know how to qualify a buyer..........know what questions to ask prospective buyers.........know how to separate out the real buyers from the lookers..............know how the mortgage process works.......learn about contract contingencies.............and on and on the list goes...........
Asking strangers on the internet what your home might be worth is not the prudent place to start.
No one can tell you what you might get for your home.....or if it is possible to get what you paid for it.........no one knows your house.......
Educate yourself, and don't be fooled into thinking this is just about finding someone who makes you an offer you will accept........that's only the beginning.
If you are serious about selling your home, I would love to offer you a complimentary consultation as well as a complimentary Historical & Current Market Analysis of your home, where we will see how your home stacks up against the competition, pricing and marketing strategies and more.
Your home sounds amazing, just by the description, but I would have to see your home in order to give you a figure.
I hope this answered your question. If you have any further questions, or would like to take me up on my offer, please feel free to contact me by the ways below.
Wishing you the best of luck,

"I Stand Behind Getting You Results!"
You are now in a Buyer's Market, This means that they dictate the price for you house. Today they smarter than before because they know they need to be qualified to be able to get a mortgage which is not easy these days either. You need a qualified buyer - this requires a proffessional to work for you. Whatever you feel towards what you home worth is irrelevant. If the appraiser will not approve the price you're asking , the buyer won't get the finance to buy your house.
A proffessional agnet will prepare for you a CMA (comparable Market Analysis) to give you a full picture of what has been sold in your area at a certain time range, what is on the market now, what is under contract, what has been expired or withdrawn or price changed. Based on this information, you will be able to price your home right - price it to sell and not to help other homes in your area to sell. How so? Agents will use your home as an example for "Over Priced" inventory, to push their inventory by pricing them less to sell. So you will end up sitting on your inventory, thinking what you can do to sell it. The market was a lot different when you bought your house than it is today and unfortunately you can not look back. You have to weigh what you would like to do and as much as it may seems unreal, you can still gain from the situation because if you are about to purchase a property as well, the seller you will buy from has to reduce his price to gain you as a buyer.
Get yourself a smaty agent who knows how to market your home right, who is dedicated and has the technology and resources to sell your house. I will tell you much more if you called me
Without seeing the home it is impossible to give you an accurate market value and market doesn't care what you paid, only what it's worth now.
I think the more important question is "why would you want to be a For Sale by Owner.(FSBO)?"
For sale by owner is the least effective, if at all effective means. Most do not succeed, and eventually list with a qualified real estate professional and have lost valuable time and money.
Those that do succeed on the average get less for their property.
You need maximum exposure, an experienced, skilled agent who is devoted entirely to selling your property, a company with cutting edge marketing ability, and a professional negotiator.
If you want to sell in the least amount of time for the most money, use an agent who is affiliated with a major league agency with a great marketing dept. That way every buyer qualified to buy your property will know about it and will be dealing with someone whose sole purpose is to represent your best interests.
